Welcome to the Roberts-Holtzner
Family Genealogical Website

This site is dedicated to two people who,
although I only spent a brief time with them,
affected my life in astounding ways.

My grandparents,

John Henry Roberts and
Anita Amelia Lessner Roberts

May they smile till the end of time.




It has been many years since the last update as current life got in the way of researching earlier family life. Hopefully I'll be able to make more regular updates now.

So what is this website all about?

First and foremost, it is a means to share the on-going results of my genealogical research into the Roberts-Holtzner Family, both with other members of my family and with other researchers who might, by chance, find something here to add to their family tree. The database reaches from the present back into the 1600's, with the main surnames being Roberts, Sterner, Bailey, Lessner, Miller, Holtzner, Hare, Harris, Hoffacker, McComas, and Scott.

Its secondary purpose is to help keep the family connected. Within the site, there are photos from the recent family reunions as well as pictures from the past. The "On This Date" link shows a monthly calendar with all the major events of the family history. We've reached a milestone in that every day of the year has something associated with it. Do you know who else was born on your birthday? Or got married the same day as you?

So pour yourself a cup of coffee, relax, and explore the site using the menu at the top or bottom of each page. If you have questions, comments, corrections, additions, or advice, I'd love to hear it!

Happy hunting!
