The questionnaire is a vital part of your "blind inquiry" package.

                     The HAVEMANN Family Information Form


I am researching the Havemann family, which came from Germany before the turn
of the century.  I would very much appreciate as much information as you can
provide.  Returning this form is, of course, not mandatory -- but it would
certainly help me in my research, and I would very much appreciate it.

Please return to: Paul Havemann, [FULL ADDRESS & ZIP]. A self-
addressed, stamped envelope is enclosed.

As you can see, there are two purposes of this form: first, to determine
where our families diverged.  My own family, which is descended from Alfred
William Havemann (born in 1906 in NY), lived in the Bronx before moving
to northern New Jersey.  Other Havemanns headed West -- I have found families
in Michigan, Iowa, Ohio, California, Texas, and other states.

The other purpose is simply to locate the various Havemann families around
the country.  It may interest you to know that the original branch of our
family is still going strong in West Germany!

Since you have read this far, I guess you're still interested -- so I'll go
out on a limb here:  if you have any old documents, photos, etc from your
distant past, I would very much appreciate copies (or the chance to make
copies) of them.  Not only would they help my research, but, as my letter
says, it's my intention to write a Havemann Family History, and photos,
wills, letters & such will make it much more interesting.  I will gladly
send a free copy to anyone who responds.  Thank you!

details on your father, grandfather, and other ancestors; interesting family
events; the names of other family members whom I could contact; books &
