This is the Family Tree Section of our website. It contains information about a substantial percentage of the people in our database. Only basic information is included: birth, baptism, marriage, and death data, and basic source information. We have completed considerable research on some of the people you find here, but others are clearly at the “work in progress” stage.

The purpose of this section is to establish contact with other researchers interested in the same people. We have more information on many of the people listed here, including detailed source references, and in some cases a little about additional relatives not included here. If you find someone of interest please use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page you want to refer to.

You can identify people of potential interest in this section using the index at the left. Or, you can use the Search Function, which allows you to search by name, and to specify birth and/or death dates, spouses, and parents if you like.

If you prefer, you can use the Site-wide Search Function to search our entire ReigelRidge site for names, places or other key words. It covers our Special Resources section as well as this section and our Family History Section, which is described below.

Our ancestors, and their siblings, can be distinguished from the many other people on the site by the icons that appear on the indexes and in the text. See the Legend for details.

Our Family History Section

Some of the people included in this section also appear in our Family History Section, which contains much more detail about selected people. A cross-reference note and link appears in this section for each person who is also in that section to help you find the additional information if you are interested.


The information in this section also appears in the archive version of our site,
at, which is intended to survive after this site expires.
If, in the future, you cannot access this site you should try that address.
