Our Immigrant Ancestors

While still in high school, I became interested in researching our family history. Since then I have accumulated a collection of official documents, church records, photographs and other artifacts. By creating this site I hope to pass this interest on to future generations and to preserve many of the photos and other documents created and collected by myself and others of this and previous generations.

This site is also intended to be a place where family can collaborate and share genealogy information as well as media, stories, documents and anything else that helps to portray a more complete picture of each individual. We continually add to and improve this site, so check back often!

Please note
