A mammoth family reunion was held at Tanunda, in the wine growing Barossa Valley district of SA on Easter Day. About 600 descendants of Samuel and Anna Hoffmann and their sons, who migrated from Silesia to SA in 1847, gathered on the original homestead site to commemorate their pioneering ancestor, one of the many in a wave of German migration to the valley during the European troubles of the 1840's. Descendants came from nearly every state. Host of the party was Mr Erwin Hoffmann of North Para Winery, Tanunda. Early arrivals (a week before the party) are greeted by Mr Erwin Hoffman and his wife, right, with the appropriate branch of the family tree on a card pinned to a wishing well. From left; Reece Dobie, 15, his father and mother, Mr and Mrs Ron Dobie, and Mr and Mrs Phil Hoffman. On the right of the card is Zonda Dobie,12
