Genealogy of Ancestors and Descendants

Genealogy of Ancestors and Descendants

NEW! 2nd Edition is now available. Our family has grown and grown these last 300 years and includes many family names now (see left side inset).  Thanks to many contributers, Margie (Hockaday) Kinnaman has validated and merged this information in to this wonderful family history book.  It covers many generations for our Loofbourrow and Syfert family lines, using the union of James Shanks Loofbourrow and Mary Catherine Syfert in the 1860s as a focus point to document both ancestors and descendants of the family.  

Other family lines are also documented:  Barker, Day, Ritenhouse, Hockday, and others.    Your family and the generations to come, will enjoy this well researced history while having a chance to become closer to cousins that might otherwise remain unknown.

Holiday Memories

A few years ago we collected holiday stories from several of our cousins and relatives and gathered them into a 35 page collection. These include stories from the turn of the century (1900) and some as recent as a few years ago. There are stories from our relatives in Iowa, Oklahoma, many from southern California area and up at Hollister. You older ones will enjoy the memories and you younger ones will get a glimpse of family Christmas' past. I hope you enjoy!

Down load the Holiday Memories collection. If you have an iPad you can download it and save it as an iBook. Most of you will probably just print it.


Thanks to fantastic family involvement in helping capture our family history, and the diligent and hard work of decades by Margie, we all now have a rich family history document that includes: interesting charts, Family Trees, Ancestor and Descendants charts, and lots of details on our ancestors..

Interested? Check out the new 2nd edition of our Family Genealogy by Margie (Hockaday) Kinnaman or try our online Family Genealogy. This online data has a security check that prohibits seeing 'living' people but it does show our history and ancestors. Contact Ron for more details.
