1 microfilm reels (35 mm)

This microfilm collection from the Mennonite Library and Archives at Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas comes from Ulrich Dueck (b. ca. 1920) of Germany, who published Die Familie Rahn von Tiegenhof (1986). The Dueck papers are a series of 11x17 charts which usually begin with a Mennonite ancestor in the 1700s and then show descendants down to the latter 20th century. There are a total of 454 charts, usually with 30-50 people on each chart. The charts seem to have been created during the last 25 years, and were not organized in any particular order. They have not been further organized at this time.
