This website is intended both to provide information on the families from whom I or my wife are descended and to provide a way to disseminate information on related subjects.

An ongoing project is research on the Utermöhlen, Utermöhle and Utermöhl families of the United States, Germany and elsewhere, which is addressed here.

A legacy website that I am no longer able to update is at Information can be found there on the Cox, James, Fowler, Rue, Holman, Disher, Lynch, McGrath, Blunden, and Pistor families, as well as further information about the Utermohlen family.

Additional information can also be found on the family trees for my wife and myself on and in the articles and other material mentioned in the publications section.
