Show-Me Ancestors

Researching and Remembering our American
and European Ancestors.


Benne family, circa 1915

Most of the individuals listed on this site are Germanic ancestors who came directly to Missouri, while others first went to Illinois and Nebraska before coming to the Show-Me state. English and Irish ancestry is also detailed as other ancestors made their way from the colonies to the midwest.

The primary focus of this web site will be my genealogy, though other research projects may also be included. Thank you for visiting. Please let me know if you have any questions or corrections.
