Welcome. To those who share our heritage we sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. Brian's bloodline is being completed first, then I will begin work on the Hunter side of the family. This is an ongoing project that may never truly be completed since research is an ever ongoing process. In depth research has been done to compile the information in these pages. Every effort has been made to be accurate in that research.
My primary source for information has been Ancestry.com, libraries, family documents, photographs and talking to people. I had the pleasure of traveling with my father-in-law, Gerald Barkey, visiting all the places he remembered as a child and young man growing up in Wyandotte. This was many years ago. I had no tape recorder so I was writing just as fast as I could, scribbling notes as he pointed and talked. It turned out to be a most enjoyable time spent with a wonderful and caring person, one who loved his heritage and found pleasure in sharing a little of it with me on this day.
I wish to thank all those who have contributed generously to this project over the years. The creation of the website began in 2002. I was new to web building so I went to an easy "wizard" friendly web company, GeoCities. Today, after many ups and downs in the building process, trying to find a web company we could work with, Weebly is our new home. I have learned how to work with codes over the years but still rely on Weebly's wizardry for most of the website design and layout. I hope you enjoy your visit.
I would also like to say a very special thank you to cousin Dave Barkey who provided information and photos we would otherwise not have had. To my daughter, Dawn, and my husband (and soulmate), Brian, a very special thank you for your continued support and input. None of this would be happening without your love and contributions over the years.
Thank you for visiting. Linda
