Here’s news for those who are descended from (or are otherwise interested in) Rev. Johann Henrich Helffrich, who emigrated from Germany in 1772, into the area of Northampton / Lehigh County, PA, and married Maria Magdalena Sassamanshausen / Sassaman:
Another cousin has started a Yahoo Group, where we’re beginning to discuss having a reunion next summer!Our plans will work much better with more input from Helfrichs across the country, from various branches of the clan.So please go to the yahoo site, click on Groups, search for TheHelfrichFamily, and join us!You’ll need a yahoo e-mail address to join the full group, with access to photos and family files and all.(Or you can join via any addy just to receive our e-mails.)
This genforum messageboard is great for general inquiries, but we shouldn’t monopolize the site with more personal, specific conversations.Our yahoo group is more efficient in getting news to the right people.
Please help spread the word to your families!
