In the Footsteps of My Stoltzfus Family: A Genealogy Memoir
Born and raised in Florida, a thousand miles away from his Amish roots in Pennsylvania, author Nic Stoltzfus felt little connection to his heritage and hard-to-pronounce last name. But through a series of unexpected events, he finds his way home. Stoltzfus shares with readers about how he learned to embrace his Amish roots, his adventures in Germany uncovering new genealogy information about his ancestors, and the story of his first year as caretaker of the historic Nicholas Stoltzfus Homestead in Pennsylvania. Told with warmth and humor, this is a memoir with themes that we can all relate to—the importance of family and understanding one’s heritage. (256pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2020.)
Nic is also the author of German Lutherans to Pennsylvania Amish: The Stoltzfus Family Story (item #4302) available for $25.00.
