Pomnitz Family Newsletter Coming
From: Art Meissner, Editor, Pomnitz Family Newsletter
To: Family Members-we-know-of-with-e-mail
We will be sending out the first Quarterly
Pomnitz Family Newsletter this Fall. I was very pleased to be asked to be its
editor. And as Editor, I need your help. How?
WHO ARE YOU?? Your surname
is one of the 106 (!!) family names associated the Pomnitz Family which are somehow
connected to the union of Adelbert Pomnitz (1852-1924) and Ida Marie Ernestina Telschaw
(1855-1934), Married 31 May, 1875. This is all sorted out admirably by Eddie Pomnitz
and Chuck Pomnitz on the Pomnitz Family Website at www.pomnitz.net.
WHY AM I WRITING TO YOU? Id like
GET YOUR IDEAS on what should be in such a newsletter from your point of view. What
will make it welcome to your eyes?
I also ask your help by SENDing me names and
E-MAIL ADDRESSES WE DO NOT HAVE. If a family member does not have e-mail, send me
their US Postal Address so that we can send them a snail-mail copy.
Third: Id like ARTICLES &
NEWS ITEMS from you: Such as births, marriages, graduations, deaths, address
changes, achievements, honors about any clan member. Also, double-check
the Family Tree on the Website (www.pomnitz.net). Send us any and all corrections
you think should be made so that we can make it as accurate as possible.
Fourth: I welcome YOUR INPUT of Family
biographies (short, please), Family Stories of parents, of selves.... anything that
fills-out the picture of our Large Pomnitz Family.
Please understand that AS NEWSLETTER EDITOR,
I WILL MERELY COORDINATE YOUR INPUT. I shall not necessarily be writing the articles.
Rather, Ill be editing, sorting, (even spell-checking!), and arranging items for
each separate issue of the Newsletter to achieve what I hope will be an interesting
balance. If there is no news, the Newsletter for a given quarter, it will be a
small letter, for sure.
The Newsletter will also include such things
||Current news of your
activities to keep others informed of one another.
||Announce and coordinate
up-coming Family Reunions.
||Short stories of one of our
||Soliciting help (and small
monetary contributions) for Family letter and activities
||A means to keep in touch....
One item you can use right now is in the
Pomnitz Website: WE HAVE AN ONLINE DISCUSSION GROUP: "The Family
Form". It requires an ID and Password. Any family member can get them
from Webmaster Eddie Pomnitz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Each successive Newsletter will be
archived and saved on our website for future reference.
So: Let me hear from you! Lets
have some fun together!
Love to you all....
