Family Meeting 2006 at Bückeburg

Hallo dear relatives of the Span(n)uth and Span(n)aus as well as Spanutius families in Europe and overseas!

Our previous announcement to organize a family reunion meeting in Sept. 2006 has receives tremendous positive response. Up to now, 131 members of the family have announced their participation to the meeting. They are from different areas in Germany, from Argentina (6), Great Britain (6) and USA (7).

For the meeting itself, we have got the opportunity to book a large and very nice facility inside the historical Bückeburg city hall where we find sufficient place for our meeting including service facilities.

Please find below the programm for our family meeting:

Starting Friday, Sept. 8th, 2006, we like to offer to interested genealogists of the family a working meeting to exchange details of our family chronicle and the different ancestor files by using computer technology. In addition, future work sharing cooperations may also be subject to negotiation.

Saturday, Sept. 9th, 2006. Within the foyer of the city hall, we intend to present an overview of our different ancestor tables and explain current and historical details and the various relations within the family and the concerned regions.
The official opening of our family meeting will start at 10:00 o'clock a.m. followed by the little sightseeing walk within the historical town centre of Bückeburg.
After an individual lunchtime and/or break, the regions of our Schaumburg roots are going to be presented in a joint meeting. Information to each little town and valley with relation to our family chronicle will be provided.
After that, we would like ask interested relatives to report about the development of their own family.
For the late afternoon, we have planned a sightseeing tour using the local Bus service owned by our relative Wilhelm Spannuth to travel either thru the northern- or southern part of our Schaumburg region. Participants will see the family related towns and valleys.
The day's program will be completed with a joined supper at the Hotel-Restaurant of Bad Hiddenserborn at Schaumburger forest.

Sunday morning, Sept. 10th, will be to your own disposition. Around noon, we would like to invite all participants to a closing and farewell meeting at the Bückeburg city hall.
