Trying to find an old friend

Hello Martin,
   
  I am trying to find information on an old friend of mine who used to live in the Idar-Oberstein area. Her name is Michelle Massaquoi (this was her married name when she and I were friends.) She has since divorced and I am trying to find her to reconnect. She has two sons and a daughter. I do not know her German maiden name, only her married name. She used to work for Giloy in Idar-Oberstein. I would like to find an address or phone number where I could contact her. Can you suggest where I could go to find such information?
   
  Thanks so much for any information you can offer.
   
  Sincerely,
   
  Kelly

Good luck! Just a suggestion, which you've probably already tried�have
you contacted the company for which she worked? Have you tried the German
telephone directory? It's possible, especially since she had children,
that she kept her married name although she was divorced.

Hello Kelly,

there are two Massaquoi in the German phone-book registered:

Patricia Massaquoi
Apostelpfad 19
53332 Bornheim
Tel. 02222-992690

Quellie Massaquoi
M�nchen
Tel. 089-3131988

Greetings
Peter

I have tried both. The company (Giloy) for whom she worked wouldn't give me any information. They wouldn't say if she still worked there and wouldn't connect me or give me an e-mail or anything. I thought that pretty strange. I found nothing in the phone book. I wondered if she has an unlisted number and maybe that was why it wasn't there. Anyway, I am still trying. Thanks for your help and if you have any other suggestions ,I am open to trying.

I tried these numbers but am having no luck getting them to go through. They never ring. I dialed 01149 and then the number listed. Is that the correct way? Thanks so much for your help.

From:

One more thought�her children would have had the name Massaquoi. If the
daughter hasn't married, there might be three persons by that last name
SOMEwhere in Germany.

Best wishes,
Marilyn

Kelly, I always have trouble dialing overseas. Maybe some kind soul in
Germany will try the numbers for you? :slight_smile:

Kelly,
it is not correct. You have to dial 011-49-2222-992690 or 011-49-89-3131988 and then it will work.

I used to have such trouble when my colleagues in our Germany office gave me a number to dial starting with 0.

In Germany, 0 is the number to dial to get long distance access, so when dialing from the U.S., you don't dial that zero.

From the U.S., you have to dial 011 for international access. So dialing international from the U.S., always start with 011 followed by the country code (49 for Germany), then the rest of the number. Note: there is no preceding "1" for long distance service.

Hi Kelly,

Some years ago when I was trying to locate a cousin of mine I sent a letter
to the personnel department of the corporation he had worked for. In it I
described him and why I wanted to contact him and any other information I
could remember about him. In the envelope to the personnel department I
also included a letter to my cousin describing who I was and how to contact
me. This letter I put in an envelope and left it unsealed. I put postage
on the envelope and my return address. I got a call from my cousin. By
doing it this way they knew I was on the up and up.
