We welcome your interest in this surname, but please remember that the information you find here is for your personal use only. It is not to be sold or re-submitted to libraries or other genealogical entities. We certainly encourage your sharing the information found here with other family members, for their personal use, but we ask you, in return, to consider sharing information about your family with us. The links found here take you to files which contain limited information that, hopefully, will arouse your interest in requesting more information (more generations, notes, sources) about specific families.
