|4 ..Family reunion 2014 in Potsdam, Berlin,Germany|
|Diedrich Keyserlingk made arrangements for a family reunion which took place in Potsdam, Berlin,Germany on the week-end of September 27th, 2014. A big Danke to Armgard and Diedrich for organizing the family meeting.
It was the first family reunion since the one in Canada in 2004.
It was a great event at which some 50 family members attended along with some 20 young children. There were 3 generations represented there. There were also several cousins who no longer carry the Keyserlingk name but who are still our real cousins. I attended the meetings with my wife Monique and we enjoyed seeing the cousins again. There are some 200 pictures which can be seen by
logging into this site and going to my (Sander Keyserlingk)personal card. The URL can be seen in the address section of my card. Diedrich has prepared a very elegant written summary of the meetings (in German) with lots of nice pictures which is now available. Sander, May 2015.|

|3....Baltic Heraldry Expostion , Rundale, Latvia, 2003|
|A major Baltic heraldry exposition was held from May to November 2003 in the castle of Rundale in southern Latvia. The castle formerly belonged to the Biron family and was known as Ruhental. The castle and its beautiful gardens have been almost completely restored to their original splendor. The exposition had some 1500 objects on display from various museums as well as from private collections in Germany. There were a number of items related to Keyerlingks including the orginal document granting the Keyserlingks the title of Count. My wife Brigitte, my brother Bob and I visted the exposition in October . You can see some pictures I took of the expostion at the website: www.ofoto.com/I.jsp?c=heyfy4z.3nkt0233&x=1&y=-4gnufk. I have also posted the opening speech given by Dieter von Samson-Himmelstejerna and an article about the exposition written by Monika von Hirschheydt which appeared in the "Nachrichtenblatt der Balitischen Ritterschaft" of September 2003. You can see these documents by clicking on the title of this item and then on the "Information Center".|
|2.... Keyserling Seminar, September,18-21, 2003 in Tartu, Estonia|
|The Estonian Goethe Association, the Estonian Science Academy and and the Institute for German Languge and Litterature at the Goethe University of Frankfurt organized a symposium in Tartu, Estonia around the works of 3 Keyserlings born in Estonia. These were Hermann (philosopher), Eduard (writer) and Alexander ( entomologist, see the article on him in "Stories" section of the website). I have now posted over 150 pictures I took during the trip in Estonia and Latvia. You can see them by going to the link shown below. If you prefer you can log in using any name you wish. It was a very interesting event for the 7 Keyserlingks who attended and we all learnt a lot about the family. It also gave my wife Brigitte, my brother Bob and me a chance to visit the Baltics. How often can you attend a whole seminar about your own ancestors?
