This site has been designed to share what I, and others, have documented about my ancestral lines, and also to help and inspire others to find and share more about their families. Please explore the site as you will (and please forgive my occasional self-promotion).

Surnames of my eight great-grandparents: Schellenberg, Szalay, Slapsay, Major, Elias, Suhr, Conover, Raddatz
