Kohlhauer Newsletters

The newsletter for the Kohlhauer descendants got its start in early 1991. Published four times a year, I used the four most common spellings in the United States as the title for the newsletter, i.e. Colehour/Colehower/Colhouer/Colhour Connections, rotating the name each month. Starting in the sixth year I changed the title to be Kohlhauer Konnections and published only one time per year. The initial year of issue was free to the entire mailing list and subscribers thereafter paid a small annual fee. After five years there were 76 subscribers. Since 1996 I have published the one annual issue free of charge to the readers.

The mission statement for the newsletter that I came up with was: "The promotion of the knowledge and the history of the Colehour, Colehower, Colhouer, Colhour, Colhower and Kohlhauer family and its descendants in America and Germany; the furtherance of research on, and the recording of, the past and present members of the Colehour, Colehower, Colhouer, Colhour, Colhower, Kohlhauer branches from earlier times; the fostering of family fellowship and awareness through meetings and publications; and the promotion of group activities by the family in support of the family interest and welfare."

The newsletter greatly accelerated the growth of the family data base from about 1000 persons in 1991 to over 12,600 persons in 2016, including spouses. Both male and female lines are being traced. The popularity of the Internet has also enabled the research to continue successfully and reach out to more cousins.
