[Auf Deutsche]Ahnentafel, Genealogie und Geschichte der Einwanderer-Vorfahren und ihrer Nachkommen. Verbinden Sie unsere freie interaktive Gemeinschaft, um Sie in Ihrer Forschung zu unterstützen und mehr von Ihnen Familie Vergangenheit zu entdecken. Wir spezialisieren uns auf die Immigrationsreise europäischer Vorfahren aus Deutschland und anderen Ländern.

Welcome, we are presenting an interactive and fun work space for those that are passionate about genealogy, history, or their family tree. In researching our own family tree, we quickly learned that there is so much information that can be found on the internet, some good and accurate, some not. Therefore, we thought to integrate our passion for history and ancestry with another passion; web development and the internet. Through time and some miss-steps we have concluded that it is often better for us when we collaborate with others before making final decisions about including someone into a family tree. We hope this site will grow over time, both in information and members. Either way, we will continue to to be here striving to provide a valuable place and to share our passions.

I hope you will spend some time here and join in the discussion. For information about how we have constructed the site, how to use its features, and how you might wish to participate, please visit our Website Information Section. Please review our Privacy Policy which is found on the bottom right hand corner of each page. You can personalize your experience even more once you Create an Account. Rest assured, having an account does not permit any of your personal information to be shared, and we keep all records private. We don't send emails to members without their request, but there is an integrated option that will allow you to sign up for some type of notification if that is what you desire.

We will be happy to help you with your family research if we have the knowledge and ability to do so. We have been collecting a fairly large library of published material that has been exceptionally helpful to our research efforts. While a large percentage of this material focuses on the northeast and midwest states, we have substantive materials for other portions of the United States and portions of Europe. We encourage you to share your information and help others via the BLOGS, CHAT or FORUM. Well, I hope you find something interesting. If you are not ready to join today, come back in the future and see how we are doing. Happy researching!

      The GoAncestry Library is coming to you!       We are beginning our efforts to place our physical and digital genealogy and history library on line. This effort will provide Bibliographic information to those areas of the website where they may help you. The hope is to make our library more useful to our members from distant areas.         Initially we will get the Book Titles placed into a new topic, then we will add the table of contents, and lastly we hope to provide some meaningful book reviews.  This effort is beginning to take shape in our Pennsylvania areas. Regional specific books will be able to be found on the county and sate pages. Additionally all of the books will find their way into the forum regions as topics. If you have questions, want some more information, or are aware of material that is included in one of these volumes, you should post your comment directly into that forum topic.        It will take time for us to get the library fully listed. Our current holdings amount to almost 5,000 volumes and I can't seem to stop acquiring more.  We just love the books, they are so helpful and interesting to us that putting them on line for others is the right thing to do.   Be patient, more books are on the way!

      I hope everyone is having a great new year.       While we have been making a few changes to some content areas, updating the software, and working with people on some of their family research, I thought to provide an update about other activities across the site.         We have created the foundation pages for Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and North Dakota.  This amounts to another 183 structured pages. While this is just the basis for more meaningful content, unfortunately it is our focus at present and an essential step towards more focused content. Not all of our team is developing these foundation pages. And that means more helpful content is still being uploaded to the website as this work continues. I hope you will continue to check in with the site as we make progress. Interesting content has been provided to some European countries and detailed data has been uploaded to Ohio.

      We were able to get more information on the Maine and New Hampshire pages over the last week. We had a glitch with Nebraska so when we rebuilt the county pages for the state, we included all of the counties.  We need to go back a refresh the societies and then begin with more content. We built the foundation for all of Virginia, in the coming days we will get the county pages built and then the societies will have a place to be presented. Next, who knows.
