My paternal ancestors were Pennsylvania Germans, my maternal ones were not so different but they migrated to Australia, some from Germany and others from Scotland and Ireland.

In 1976, in the spirit of the American Bi-centennial, I published a history of my family. The paternal ancestral families outlined in this book or its more recent internet update are:

1.Wiant-?-Mertz-?-Moser-Busch-Wagner-?-Schwab-?-Hezel-?-Jäger-Schuster-Schnug-Beyer-Gerberich-Rudolph-Froescher-?-Heu-?-Voneida-Reed-Poorman-Stober -Schop-?-Graf -?- Stober -Lang
