Hi this is an email I recently got, I thought it might be of interest to others:
Dear Member ofthe great Theuerkauf-Family,
Isn't it a pleasure to have such a rarely family name? All over the globe there are truly just 2000 "Theuerkäufe". The origin of our name is located in Germany. Therefore namesakes from other countries are questing their parentage in Germany. Since 10 years I´m searching for the history of my family. In Allmenhausen/Thüringia I found the oldest member of my family Georg Theuerkauf married 1664Maria Fleischhauer. Thats why we meet us in this small village for many years. Last September 2004 was the first meeting of family members only from Germany. This year we organised the greatest reunion of the family THEUERKAUF.We have sent more than 500 invitations worldwide and expect "Theuerkäufe" from many countries like America, France, Denmark, Switzerland and perhaps Australia. We prepared a lot of events on this Familiy Day for example excursion arround Allmenhausen, visit of the museum in Kirchheiligen,lecture about family history, about famous Theuerkäufe, family migration and our coat of arms. It is possibleto conserve our Theuerkauf coat of arms, after you proved your affiliation to our family tree. The Family Day is prepared over a long time and offer a possibility to discover new family member or to find the roots of your family. Take this opportunity to smile from the photo with the most Theuerkauf of the world.
