The GAUER Family
Gauer Family Discussion Forums
This web site has now been on the net for over 10 years (which, in Internet time, is like 50 normal years :-). I regularly get contacted by other researchers around the world who are interested in the GAUER family. My original idea was to accept emails from GAUER researchers and create and maintain a list of GAUER researchers and queries for information. Due to the pressures of a normal life this hasn't worked out the way I hoped. So now we move to plan B. :-)
Discussions on the internet have evolved dramatically over the years. In the early days Usenet (also know as "news groups") and Mailing lists (also known as "Listservs") florished. They both worked by allowing anyone with email to discuss any topic by sending an email to a particular email address and then some server would send a copy of your email to everyone subscribed to that email address. Both of these discussion methods are still in existance but I don't recommend them because Usenet has no filtering of who can say what and neither of them have newsgroups or lists specific to the Gauer surname.
The most popular method these days is Forums which have the advantage of being accessed using a web browser and the two Gauer forums I have found are monitored for inappropriate comments (like advertisements or off topic posts). So, instead of sending querys and announcements of your research interests to me I would now like to ask the reader of this page to make your interests and needs known to other GAUER researchers on the internet by adding a new entry to the GAUER discussion on Ancestry.com. Ancestry.com is a commercial company but you can read and post (add new entries) to the Gauer discussion group by just registering for a free account. The other Gauer discussion forum is on Genealogy.com but as of 2009 it has had no activity for more than 3 years. To participate in the Ancestry Gauer discussion forum follow this procedure:
If you have any questions about the above procedure please send an
and I will try my best to assist you.
I encourage everyone with a GAUER ancestor to place an entry on this GAUER discussion page and respond to new posts by other Gauers. I hope someone will connect with long lost family there someday. I have.
A final warning; be aware of privacy when you word your entry. Effectively everyone on the internet will be able to view every word of what you write so think very carefully before including personal information such as addresses and/or phone numbers.
