| The history of this family has been researched for over 14 years. It is the story of their ancestors but more importantly, it is the story of their descendants. They number over 400 people, all Americans because this couple scrimped, saved and then took on the daunting task of a transatlantic voyage to start a new life.|
There are no celebrities, no barons of business - - - just common people who make up the thread that makes up America.
It is my fervent wish that members of this vast family will take up the cause of preserving our history and heritage and join in this endeavor. I welcome inquiries about ways to assist or get involved in the effort. I urge a review of my research for edits, corrections and most importantly, contributions of new information.
Think of the joy to be felt by generations yet unborn who will be able to read of their roots and see photos and documents that make their ancestry come alive.
Join me, won't you? Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren are counting on us.
|The Family of Bernard & Anne Ryan of Buffalo, NY|
