Hi Jean,If you phonetically spell (in English), the German pronunciation of "Bayern", you will get Biern.Bobbi — On Wed 12/06, Shelby Jean Morris < jmuffy@sbcglobal.net > wrote:From: Shelby Jean Morris [mailto: jmuffy@sbcglobal.net]To: genealogy.net-users-en@genealogy.netDate: Wed, 6 Dec 2006 19:07:48 -0800 (PST)Subject: Re: [GEN-EN] Question on Saxony / Goldammer researchInstead of Biehn, it is Biern. So, where do I go from here. Any suggestions will be helpful.Christine Mathis-Huber wrote: Sorry Jean,I think you have to do a little bit more. Do you have the marriagecertificate ? Do you have the death certificate ? Immigration ?Naturilization papers ? All this papers should tell something - hopefullythe place of birth. Bavaria (english translation of Bayern) or Baden or ??is really not enough to start a research. Biehn is nothing I would know.Neuberger (the german way of writing Newberger) in the german phonebook have1287 entries - spread all over Germany
- absolutly to much for anysuggestion.Sauer - over 17.000 in the German phonebook.I myself have Sauer (Saur) ancestors - but from Rhineland.I don`t see any chance to help, as I canot see where to begin.Greetings from Bavaria (Bayern)Christine-----Ursprungliche Nachricht-----Von: genealogy.net-users-en-bounces@genealogy.net[mailto:genealogy.net-users-en-bounces@genealogy.net]Im Auftrag vonShelby Jean MorrisGesendet: Mittwoch, 6.

My ggrandfather came overabout 1853 with ??? His name was George Sauer. My ggrandmother wasBarbara Newberger, & her brother Gustav came together on the Zurich fromLeHavre. They arrived Castle Garden July 2, 1857. She was about 20 & herbrother was 24. I don't know if they knew each other over there or not. Onthe1880
