Gary Heyn is a former corporate executive who has refocused his research and analytic skills to genealogy, history, and writing with an emphasis on the former residents of the Grand Duchy of Posen. After two trips to the region, he was excited to find a wealth of documentation available and frustrated that the history of this province, the former home to many German immigrants in the Upper Midwest, was so poorly documented. It has become his mission to bring these people’s stories back to life.
