In the past few years, I have been compiling a family tree of our part the Kaiser clan, mainly as descended from Harry Albert Kaiser (1876 - 1953) and Emma May (Wingerd) Kaiser (1876 - 1969), my Great-Grandparents.
This is not a traditional family tree in that I am not concentrating so much on tracing back to ancestors as much as in documenting all the family relationships of the descendents of Harry and Emma and those who have married into that family. This is to help all of us in the family understand our connections to each other better. As a result, it documents many who would not show up in normal descendant charts, such as step-children, other marriages, etc.
That said, while I concentrate on recent generations, I would certainly be interested in further information about our ancestors. As you can see, I don't have much. I'd also be glad to receive any interesting tidbit-type stories about family members, either living or deceased.
If you drop by to read up on our family, please drop me an email or a note in the

Privacy Concerns prevent me from distributing the current generation information publicly on the website, so I have provided several forms of information here, some password-protected.
