Museum der Bayerischen Geschichte

The new "Museum der Bayerischen Geschichte" in Regensburg is looking for original clothing (Lederhose, Janker, Jacket, Hut, Dirndl, Mieder, etc) to document the 19th century history of migration from Bavaria to the U.S. The clothing would be displayed in the new museum.  It is not clear whether this would be a loan or a donation. 

For more information contact Dr. Margaretha Schweiger-Wilhelm   schweiger-wilhelm@amerika-akademie.de

Gau-NA "Family Tree" Project

Gau-Beisitzer Christine Ott and Fritz Sheffler and I are undertaking a project that involves all the Gau-Vereine!  We're calling it the "Family Tree Project."  We want to find out who your Patenverein is and who your Paten-"Kinder" are.

Print your own Map of Gau-NA!

A map hangs in our Gauverband Nordamerika room in Holzhausen that shows the location of every Gau-NA Verein as of the Holzhausen Einweihung (Grand Opening) May 2015. You may have read the story in the last issue of the Gauzeitung, so you already know that our Bavarian friend Sepp Kaindl suggested the map and Tom Vogt followed up on it. Tom asked Golden Gate San Francisco's Fritz Sheffler, a graphic artist, to come up with a beautiful design -- and Fritz certainly did that!
