Welcome. To those who share our heritage we sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. This is an ongoing project that may never be truly completed. Every effort has been made to be accurate in the research.
My primary source for material has been Ancestry.com, libraries, family documents and photographs, and talking to people. On one occasion early in my research (before the website became a reality) I had the pleasure of traveling with my father-in-law, Gerald Barkey. We visited places he remembered as a child and young man growing up in Wyandotte, Michigan. Boy, what a fun day that was. That was many years ago. I had no means of recording the conversations we had; no tape recorders or cell phones back then. All I had was paper and pencil. I wrote as fast as I could, scribbling notes as he pointed out landmarks and talked about his family and growing up in Wyandotte. My time with my father-in-law turned out to be a most enjoyable experience. Sadly, he passed away in 2001. The man I knew as my father-in-law was a wonderful, caring person. I could tell he loved his heritage. He found pleasure, and a certain pride, in sharing his stories with me on this very special 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. Today, after many ups and downs in the web building process, trying to find a web company I could work with we settled on Weebly. 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 Brian's cousin Dave Barkey who provided information and photos we would otherwise not have had. Thank you, Dave, for your contribution. Also, to my daughter, Dawn, and my husband Brian; a very special thank you for your continued support and input. None of this would have happened without your love and input over the years.
Thank you for visiting.
