This site contains family branches for many different family members direct or by marriage because once I get started it's hard to stop! The information found on this website comes from various documents, genealogy sites, and contributions from family members too numerous to mention but I must give thanks to the following for sharing the hard work they did on their family trees and for allowing me to incorporate them on this site: Don Jackson for the Ready Family; Thomas Randall for the Painter, Roe, Van Velsor/Velsor and Randall Families; Clay Sigg for the Roe and Van Velsor/Velsor Families; Audrey Weiner, Lynda Lerner, Barry Geier and Nessa Fay Lerner Wilk for the Kalman/Coleman, Sirota, Lerner and Geier Families; Dan Bleicher for the Bleicher, Campbell, Sherman, Castleman, and Carmel Families; Sondra (Sherman) Ettlinger and Pro Sherman for the Sherman Family; Rhonda Saldias for the Matza Family; Dan Treadway for the Emmons Family; Herb Depke for the Factor Family; Brian Foont for the Kotimsky family; William L. Smith, Ph.D. for the Fletcher and Kinnick Families; and Marc Reitman for the Rinsler and Seeman families. Remember this is a work in progress and that there are definite possibilities of errors. If you happen upon one, please e-mail me at so I can correct it.

The site has moved to Geocities will be closing as of October 26th but I will be updated both sites as needed. I'm a bit behind on family information sent to me but promise all it will be up soon!!

In memory of those who came before us and for those that will come after. Lest We Forget.

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. ~William Penn
