<p>Members of a family from a Mennonite community pose for a photograph at their home in Cuauhtemoc November 9, 2012.

Shortage of farmland, drought and conflict with rivals have made some Mennonites in northern Mexico wonder if the best way of providing for their families is to go back to the plains of eastern Europe their ancestors left in the 19th century.
