Who are we and where did we come
from? We can only investigate our origins over a fraction of the time
that the human race has existed. Written records for the common man are
available for only about three hundred fifty years. Any earlier records
that may have been made are lost in antiquity. But in those few hundred
years there is a great deal of material to sort through. In ten generations,
a span of about 250 years, each of us have 250 to 512 direct ancestors
to locate and record. If we go back 20 generations, which would be about
500 years, our task would produce about a million direct ancestors.
have sent us information about their parts of the family and we are grateful.
We especially thank the following. Our son Victor started it all by sorting
some old postcards and listing names of relatives. His questions started us
on our quest. He also checked our efforts and gently called our attention to
errors that crept in. His wife, Naomi, graciously edited our writing. Our eldest
son Robert set up the program to produce the charts and always had the answers
when it came to computer problems.
Thanks also to Margie Hebrew in Omaha, Nebraska, for me use of the Slipke family photo album where we found many clues to that branch of the family, and to Loretta (Carl) Brand of Colwich, Kansas, who found very valuable records on the Slipke, Magette, and Meurisse families. Without her help, we would know little about these relatives.

As the record of a family is never finished, this book has been made in loose leaf form so that it can be added to and improved as new information becomes available. We encourage everyone to search their own branch of the extended family and record their findings for posterity.

“A family tree is a work in progress.
No one, living or dead, remains untouched by any union that occurs, no matter
when it happened or will happen. You and I will be added to more family trees
long after we are gone. If we weren’t related to each other before, there’s
ample time in the future.”
