- A fascinating journey through history.
- A discovery of our forebears contributions to our family and the world around
- A journey where you may find skeletons, or heros and those who were just
place markers in history, but most of all, without one of them, none of us
would be here today to grasp the beauty and wonder of life.
HALF THE FUN IS THE SEARCH,
THE REMAINDER IS SHARING WHAT YOU FIND.
I became interested in my family genealogy in 1993 while
attending my niece's wedding in California. I was attracted to a family
bible which has been passed down through the generations, from my 5th great
Jacob Estey, (b. 15 Oct. 1690 d. Apr. 1777) and is now held by my older
At that time I thought that it was sad that the family
information contained within this bible would be seen by so few people and
if the bible was lost or
destroyed those hand written entries, scribed so long ago, would be lost to all
generations that follow. It was then I made a vow to myself that I would
compile as much history of my family as I could and make it available to any
and all who are in search of their connection to the greater human family
God placed on this earth.
It is my view that this information is not mine, although
I spent countless hours compiling and entering it into my genealogy database.
I am only the caretaker for a period of time, like so many others who have
gone before me.
It is my belief, as was Karl A. Gelpke another Estey
descendant, that our forebears deserve recognition in a permanent form. To
this end I will continue
to gather histories of my extended family and thence continue to grow this

LOOKING FOR INFORMATION AND WILLING TO SHARE WHAT I HAVE ON:
Start with my Dad & Mother
All surnames not highlighted in white are surnames which I have no further
information than their parents; if that much.
The information on this web page represents only my direct lines back through
the generations. At this time I have over 5000 names in my database which
contains many other surnames.

If your family lines intersect with any of mine, please share what I have on
these pages. I only ask that if you have knowledge of any of the above surnames
that tie to my lines that you would share that information with me.
