This is a family history project on which I have been working with several "cousins" for many years,
and plan to continue to research for many more years.

 


 

 

EMERSON FAMILY

Coat of Arms

 

 

This EMERSON coat of arms was first found in Durham, England.

The EMERSON family is said to have settled in this Durham area as far back as 1195 A.D.

Researchers have connected my EMERSON ancestors to Almeric (aka Aimeric or Emerie) who was said to be born in the Aquintania Province of the Loire Valley in France prior to 1195 A.D.

 


HOW IT ALL STARTED



In the early 1970's, my father's brother, Uncle Bill Emerson, peeked my interest in genealogy with his abundant knowledge of our family history.  He knew EMERSON family details and had information about our ancestors that no one else had ever mentioned before! Imagine that!!!  Being a curious teenager, I was very impressed and could not get enough of this genealogy stuff.

Over the years, I endlessly interviewed my parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in a tireless pursuit of the Family History Project. This pursuit is no longer just a project for a website, as much as it is a life long commitment.

In recent years, I have begun research on my mother's family, the STEIN's, THEN's, and JAUCH's.  Although I have found little confirmed information on this, my Buffalo NY German side of the family, I have made great progress with the help of my parents, aunts, and uncles, as well as other JAUCH researchers.

I have also begun more intensive research into the SMITH’s of Canada and England, and the BELL’s and BUSH’s of Canada, my father's maternal ancestors. I have confirmed the fact that my great grandfather, William George SMITH was born aboard the H.M.S. Orontes, a British Troopship, in March of 1873, sailing from the Caribbean back to England.

Over the years of research, I have accumulated a wealth of information on THE EMERSON FAMILY, beginning with ROBERT EMERSON, our immigrant ancestor, through his descendants from the 1650's to the present.
