EEGS / FEEFHS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
Winnipeg - August 4th to 6th 2006

Speaker
Felix G. Kuehn
Felix G. Kuehn began his historical research at age six. During the last half century he has uncovered the roots and branches of his father’s family in Germany, Poland, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, the USA, and Canada. Author of numerous books, pamphlets and brochures and contributor to many community and family histories, Mr. Kuehn is sought after for his thorough research and documentation. He was instrumental in starting the first Lutheran Historical Society in Western Canada, collaborating to write the book “…And They Built An Altar.” As founding president of The Boundary Commission/North West Mounted Police Trail Association he compiled a series of books and pamphlets on the history of southern Manitoba, telling A Story for Every Mile, as well as coordinated a two-week historical Wagon Train across southern Manitoba. Participants at a variety of religious and historical conferences and symposiums have enjoyed the engaging wit and integrity of research that Mr. Kuehn presents as a guest speaker. He is also an artist of international renown with his historical sketches of the Eastern Church under the name “Avvakum Art.”
 
Presentations:
•  Heroes and Villains of the Ukrainian Church of Western Canada
 Three saints, one martyr, the co-conspirators of a plot to match the Da Vinci Code, a mentally-challenged “archimandrite, arch-pope, arch-patriarch,” and numerous selfless missionaries all figure in the early history of the Ukrainian church in Manitoba. Mr. Kuehn’s talk will be a non-judgmental presentation in which the audience will have the option to assess who were the “heroes and villains of the pioneer Ukrainian Church in Manitoba.”
