We have enjoyed
studying genealogy and family history for many years. Our records
have been compiled into a series of books which organize essentially
everything we know about our ancestors and relatives.
listing is divided into six books based on last names and a seventh book
which contains supplemental lists, stories and other illuminating facts.
In total, the books
list 22,038 people and 8,508 marriages surrounding sixteen primary family
names: Brandt, Cencia, Cressman, Dybdall, Froelich, Henry, Knutson, Krenz,
Marsh, Newell, Panetti, Raub, Serra, Tempera, Walters, and Young. Other
names represented in significant numbers include Bartlett, Greene, Davis,
Denison, Eastman, Crossmann, Johnson, Colby, Smith, Olmstead, Bowman,
Curtis, Howell, Froelich, Parker, Woodruff, Raub, Brown, Trull, Congdon,
and Cook. A few birth dates reach back to England as far as the year 534.
entries include the personís name and (where known) dates and places of
birth and death, parentís names, marriages, and children. As available,
information concerning education, immigration, residence, etc. is also
included. People living or thought to be living are excluded.
Since a group
of trees is known as a forest, the books, which are a grouping of family
trees, are titled "Family Forest."
