We are getting close

Hi All! 

We are getting closer to the next newsletter! We are still looking for information from y'all. Make sure that we have a list of the babies born into your family from 2009 to now. We also need a list of anyone who has gotten married and anyone serving in the military. We also would like to know if anyone has passed away so that we can let others in the family know. We don't want to leave anyone out. 
We are super excited that the Reunion is coming up and we can't wait to see everyone! 
Make sure that you contact us by e-mail or other means with your families information! Thank You!

Exciting News!!

We have some exciting news! I want to tell you but lets talk about this great picture that we have here. This is James M. Godbehere. He is one of William Daniel Godbehere brothers, the youngest in fact. The exciting news about this it that James had a son Jap Godbehere. The same Jap Godbehere that convinced William Daniel Godbehere (Jap would be his nephew) that he should move to Arizona. 

I am so excited to tell you that we have reconnected with some family members from Jap E. Godbehere line. It is so wonderful that we are able to exchange genealogies as well as letting them know about our Godbehere Family Reunion. They are excited and it looks like we are going to get to met them. Some have expressed interest in joining us for our next Godbehere Family Reunion on April 17, 2011. What a fun time we are going to have at the reunion next year! Be sure to mark you calendars.

It will once again be a Potluck Lunch! So don't forget to bring your favorite food item to share with everyone!

We will be sending out letters this summer to family members asking that you help us and be your families Representative. We need you to help us with births, deaths, marriages, and military service. We have some ideas on who these people are gonna be but if you would like to be your family rep please let us know. This is for the information that we all love to see on the newsletter!

We have once again decided that we will be raffling off another Godbehere book, From here to there with the Godbeheres, as well as any other items that will be donated... If you have craft or a skill please share it and place it in the raffle for the 2011 reunion. If you have any questions about the raffle please e-mail us Dori has agreed to help with the raffle and keep it organized! Thank you Dori!
This year there will also be printed name tags with your family tree printed on it! So if you need to get us information regarding your family please let us know. Tiffany and Ginger will be working on all the family history and the large family tree that will be posted at the reunion.
There will once again be games for the children and don't worry adults there will be some games for you too...

A Committee Meeting

The Godbehere Family Reunion Committee Meeting will be held Saturday, April 17, 2010. 7 pm @ Nikki Wilson's House! Please join us!

Hi All!!

The Godbehere Family Reunion for this year, 2010, has been canceled. I know this is sad as many people come every year! The Godbehere Family Reunion newsletter has been mailed to all current addresses that we have on file. There is a survey in with the newsletter that I hope you will all fill out and return. Jeanie Hogg had done such a fantastic job keeping up with everyone. Addresses were always up to date and information was always given for the newsletter. She is sadly missed. So with that being said WE EXPECT AND HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE IN 2011! 

I am sure that many of you have questions and I am sure that many of you want to know how YOU can help. We have some ideas about that and hope that you will contact us with your ideas and contributions. 

First: We will be starting up a committee to fill Jeanie's shoes! This will allow for multiple sides of the family to be heard and to help. Don't worry if you live far away... you can still help and be part of the Godbehere Family Reunion.

Second: We will be asking that you all help us with keeping your addresses updated. As well as asking for your help in giving information to us for births, deaths, marriages, and military service. This is something that Jeanie loved to see on the Newsletter. I loved seeing it, as I am sure most of you did as well.

Third: We will be working really hard on getting to know all of you. I know that sometimes when you come to a reunion you aren't sure how everyone fits together. You are not alone, others probably feel this was too. So we will be working hard on family trees and our family history so that we might all know where each other fit into the family! 

Fourth: We will be setting up another Godbehere Family Reunion blog that will be made private so that any information regarding our families can remain private to the outside world. All of those who would like to be invited will be invited (e-mail addresses will be necessary). This will be a place where we can let other family members know of births, deaths, marriages, and military service through out the year and not just on the newsletter (don't worry all of this info will still be on the newsletter). This is also a place where we can spotlight families so that we might get to know each other better. 

That is it for now, please share this blog and information with all that you can so that we might get this information to everyone. 
Remember that our e-mail address is godbeherefamilyreunion@gmail.com. Please e-mail us with any and all questions comments or concerns! This is just another way that we can all stay connected. If you know someone that doesn't have access to the internet and they have questions please have them address letters Nikki Wilson or Tiffany Pankau at this time! 

We are going to keep this blog updated regularly as well...
I hope that you are all having a wonderful year so far and look forward to seeing you in 2011 in Arizona!
