Please feel free to look around. This is a scrubbed read-only dump of the information I have gathered and organized in my main family-tree software. I use this site as a way to get information out to the family (or anyone else who is curious).
This is a constantly evolving document. I make updates of some form or another (from significant items like new ancestors to mundane things like source documentation and census records for people I already have) on a semi-regular basis.
Under the "Favorites" section to the right (or the menu on the top right), you'll find links to the four main limbs of the tree which represent the families of my parents and my wife's parents.
For privacy reasons, all persons assumed or proven to be living have been completely removed.
Please check the News section below for updates or announcements from me.
If you have any questions or updates, please let me know via the link at the bottom of pretty much every page on the site.

Anderson - Ancestors and Descendants of my great-grandfather Hans Anderson
Sweeney - Descendants of my 2nd great-grandparents Dan and Maggie Sweeney
Kueter - Ancestry and Descendants of my wife's 3rd great-grandparents Johan and Maria Kueter
