I have now completed a detailed report (Return to the Great Steppe) about the recent trip of the Atkinson descendants to Kazakhstan. If you would like a copy in pdf format, just click on the link.
You may be interested to look at some of the press coverage arising from the visit. Articles include this piece from a Kazakh news organisation; this report in Kazakh from Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Education; this report in English from kazinform; this report from the website of Kazakhstan’s National Academic Library; this report in the Western Gazette about Pippa Smith’s experience in Kazakhstan; and here on the BBC’s Uzbek service. And this is from the Astana Times.
