My Koser Family Heritage Updated February 27, 2002
About Our Family Research
When I first started this project it was as a term paper for an English Professor at college. Once I got into it, I became hooked. The information that I had at that time was very little, but intriguing and mysterious, and I love mysteries. But later, as I graduated and went on with my life, marriage, the birth of a new child, a new job, etc. I began to drift and finally I stopped altogether. Then one day, as I was cleaning out my closet, it stared me in the face. My paper that I had done in english class along with all of the information that I had. I read it all over again and realized that I had to finish my work or at least try. It has been a couple of months now, and I feel great. I have come up with so much, even with help from far away.... Most of the info. I have found has been due to the internet there is so much out there....
