The redesign of our site took longer than expected but we hope you'll find it was worth the wait. If this is your first visit here, we welcome you to explore our Midwest Family History. You can start by reading the FAQ. Or browse the Surname List from the menu above-right.
The scope of our research has been to trace our own lineage back to our immigrant ancestors and seek their descendants in the American Midwest states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and beyond. In these pages you will find the descendants of:
Lynch, Donnelly, Carroll and Hand from County Meath, Ireland
Rohan and Considine from County Clare, Ireland
Burke, Fahey, Cronan and Smith from Ireland
Walters, Cartwright, Dickens and Collins from Staffordshire, England
Spencer from England
McKenzie and Fraser from Peeblesshire, Scotland
Schaefer, Leffler and Yost from Grimm, Russia
Runte and Schmidt from Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany
Reichert and Dapper from Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany
Boehm and Spinka from Prachatice, Bohemia
Witting and Koenig from Schönberg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany
