My name is Karekin Yarian. I am in the line of Mathias>George>Conrad>Benjamin. I am a Yarian and a writer.I have been working for some time on gathering genealogy material on the ancestors on Mathias Irion in the United States.
I know that Jim Weaver had produced one that is no longer available. It is my intention to create a rather updated book in similar fashion to Jim's book, but expanded and revised.
I would appreciate anyone who may be interested in such a project to contact me. I am looking for information on any and all lines of descent and supporting documentation (baptismal records, marriages, wills, burial, photos, articles, etc.). I am also looking for collaborators who would be willing to help proof copy once the project is underway.
The intent is to cover the first 5 generations of Mathias and then to index through generation 7. Out of respect, no information will be used on living persons. Full credit will be given in the finished work to all contributors.
Carl Bennet has most graciously made available his remarkable data base for my use in creating this project. Other prominent Yerian/Yarian researchers have already offered to be part of this project. I know the need for updated material is great and I hope that anyone who is interested will make their material available.
