Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little.  This site is an attempt to record what I have learned about our family history.  In these modern times families tend to be scattered all over the world and contact is often lost between branches and members of the family.

One of the goals of this website is to help our family stay connected and create a point of contact for the family, even though we live in the four corners of the world.  It is medium to facilitate connection between close and distant relatives.  This website is an attempt to get a delicate balance between the need for privacy and the need to share information amongst the family.  To this end, only the names of living relatives are used.

This website has been in the making for many years and is the result of my own private research, and the research  and information supplied to me by other family members.

Over the years I have accumulated a lot of information on other families connected directly to our own, and this new website contains all that information along with our own family information.

This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information or photos to add to our ever growing family tree.
