This site is the new repository for our family tree information. The main Surnames that we
are researching are IWANIW and KERR. The ancillary Surnames that we are researching
are TYZBIR, LAYHUE, and WASHABAUGH. These are all part of our Family Historian Project. The Main Iwaniw Family
Blog web site can be accessed by clicking here; here is where
you will find the latest information on my Iwaniw Family Research efforts. If you are interested
in the Kerr, Layhue, or Washabaugh family lineage you may want to contact Linda directly via e-mail.
Both my wife and myself have been involved in genealogy research for many years. Linda`s
interest started because when she was a child she was told that one of her ancestors served in the
militia on the American frontier. Which one was what she wanted to find out.
Mine started because I wanted to learn more about my family roots and because I have always been
interested in history and everything historical. So, genealogy was a great outlet for me.
Much of the information that we have on the WASHABAUGH family line comes from
Craig Washabaugh`s book 260 Years of the Washabaugh Family in America.
