The Stadem and Holbek Memorial Bibles and Plain View Farm Heritage DVD presentation can be viewed either in a private home or at a venue of your own choice. It is best viewed on a widescreen TV. The presentation will be on a DVD disc that is not authorized to be copied. The reason for that is donors give sacrificially, and if copies are made indiscriminately, people will receive the DVD on the cheap, and Heritage does not come cheap, it is not free, it comes at great cost, even lives.

Donors to the digitizing project that involved the reunion videos will receive a copy, plus a copy of the 1994 reunion and a copy of the Plain View Farm Stories read by our aunts, uncles, and cousins and videotaped by Cathy Spilde.

Donors who gave specifically to the DVD video project will receive a two-part DVD video. They may or may not receive a video DVD which Cathy Spilde originally videotaped of Plain View Farm stories read by principal Stadems and Stadem Descendants. A 1994 video DVD, may or may not be given, as the number of both items is limited. All sacrificially donated funds will go direct to the Plain View Farm Secretary, whom I last heard was Aanna Chase in Chicago, the Samtaleran Editor, or if she is not handling the finances, then to Peter Stadem, President of the LLC Stadems, earmarked for exclusive use for the finishing of the barn and for no other projects.

We three who produced the DVD will handle absolutely no funds for that project, and ask that none be sent Ron Ginther for the DVD. It is not free, it comes with a price, just as Heritage comes, but we will not be paid a dime, we want ALL to go to the Barn Project which is 23 years old and counting!

Be richly blessed in viewing this visual smorgasbord, one and all Stadem Descendants! It is really your individual choice whether you will be or not.

Prayerfully and sincerely, Ron Ginther, Editor and DVD Project overseer
