The Kevin Strattan (Stratton) Family Home PageUpdated August 28, 2013
I have been researching my family tree in earnest since 1995.It is my goal to go as far back as I can and get as many descendants of my ancestors as is possible.Most of my line is Dutch and Norwegian, while most of my wife's line is German and Norwegian, but our ancestors do represent many of the other European Countries as well.
I have at last count amassed a data base of 50,258 names, and it is still growing!My research includes not only ancestors, but as many of the descendants of our ancestors as I can gather (hence the large amount of names).It now also includes some ancestors of my nieces and nephews that are unrelated to me as well.
See my reports, and related files below for more information on my family and what I am researching!
Books I have made for the family so far:
Berg/Larson (2 Editions) - looking to make another one after the Berg Family Reunion
Bouma/Middel (1 Edition)
Vanderley/Den Boer (2 Editions)

Dahlby/Jefferson (sometime in the future depending on interest)
