The Parker Family -- UK to US

Updated April 17, 2004

About Our Family Research


I have spent the last 3 years researching, compiling, sharing research, running into dead ends and then...a breakthrough!

The family tree that I have compiled thus far mainly deals with my father's line of Parkers, which traces back to England and to Richard Parker who emigrated in the early 1600s. There are still parts of this tree that I have not been able to verify with primary documents, so if anyone finds errors, please feel free to let me know. Part of the thrill of genealogical research for me is the twists and turns it takes on the journey. As an English teacher, my love for research never quite left me after graduate school, so this is a great way to satisfy that love!

As I said, my research deals mostly with my dad's male Parkers, though I have some information on the women in the family, just not much. I also have some research on my mother's line, the Dietz family from Texas (and Germany)and a bit on my paternal great grandmother's family, the Sylvests. I welcome any and all questions and advice as I am a relative novice to this process.
