Genealogy:Goelzhausers go international
Posted by: Eric Maurer on Mar 30 2011 05:47

Well family it has finally happened. I have been in contact with a distant cousin from Germany (fourth cousin, once removed to me). Peter Gölzhäuser contacted me through Ancestery.com. From there we have been sharing information with each other. I provided with all the information that I had of the two Goelzhauser brothers that came to America. And he has been providing me with what he has been finding out about the Gölzhäusers that stayed in the Germany area.

Gölzhäuser is the German spelling, while Goelzhaeuser was the English translation. Yet with the brothers Joseph and Henrich came to America it became what we know as Goelzhauser.

I have been very excited with all the new information and family history provided by Peter. He has been running around to different villages looking up decade old records from churches and other places to find clues of the families past.

Thank you Peter for what you have accomplished.

Announcements:2010 Census
Posted by: Eric Maurer on Jan 26 2010 15:04
Dear family,

This is the year our country will do a census of all the people living in your household. This is very important for you to fill out and mail back to our government. So please do not forget to fill out your census form and return it.

However, before you return it make a copy of it and place it in your genealogy files. Your future generation genealogists will be thrilled to find in your files your 2010 census. Remember this census we will fill out this year will not be available for 72 years to the future generations for research. Please encourage all your family members to do the same.
If you are willing to send me a copy either by mail or email, and I would gladly put it in with all my genealogy files I have been accumulating.

I have two prayer requests and would appreciate you help. First - My daughter Julie(the one with all the kids) has to have 2 breast biopsies next Friday. We know she has the breast cancer gene but let's pray they come back negative. The Second is for my sister and her husband's family. The found Kent's oldest brother dead yesterday- he was 58. As some of you may know, they found Kent's younger brother dead(he was 46) on May 1st. Kent is executor for both brothers and things have been a mess and very costly for them so far so I would appreciate any prayers you could send up for them. Thanks in advance for your prayers!! Pam
