MEET YOUR ANCESTORS...
UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL


The title for this section was coined by Rex Stevenson, originator of this site and contributor of the first profile of his own ancestor, "Captain Henry Eckler: Hero of the Mohawk Valley." The majority of articles below were contributed by site visitors and are a source of pride for their own family members to view on line. Some of the items listed are cross-indexed elsewhere on the site under their respective town or other major category.

Would you like to see your Montgomery ancestor or direct line featured on this page? Have you written something up about your family that would fit into one of the categories above? Need input on the local one-family study you're working on? Please contact the Site Coordinators about format and other details. We're sorry that we can't post GEDCOMs or genealogy software reports, but narrative items small and large similar to the ones featured below are always welcome.
