Genealogy

Introduction

The only purebred are inbred.
Lorne Elliot

Genealogy is history. But, it’s not the history we learn in school, which is the study of how the countries we live in came to be. Genealogy is the study of ordinary people.

All of our ancesters were born in Europe. We both belong to the first generation of our families born in Canada. Sylvana’s ancesters are from Slovenia. Hans’ ancesters are from the Grand-Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (now part of Germany) and from the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands.

On this page, we list the surnames we are researching.
