Welcome to my Falkenburg Genealogy website. I am in the process of making substantial changes to this site which will be implemented over the next year. When I began exploring my family roots, I documented my research on this site. Over the past several years, I have taken that research and put it into the format of a multi touch ebook which will shortly appear in the iBooks store as a free download. Currently, individual chapters of the book The Falkenburgs: A Colonial American Family are available on this website. Not all of the features of the iBook will work from the pdf version archived here. I began this update assuming that I would keep parallel webpages: new and old. This has turned out to be difficult. If you are looking for any old materials I had posted on the original website, please contact me at the email address below.

In the new website structure there are Three primary roots: (1) the manuscript, (2) a research page, and (3) a list of helpful resources. BothThe manuscript and the research pages are organized on an historical timeline. There are three reasons for including material in the research section as opposed to the manuscript. First, the manuscript is already nearly 400 pages in length. In order to make it more readable, I had to make decisions about detail I would not include. Second, in the research segment, I can include issues which are not proven and the subject of ongoing research. Finally, there may be times that I want to move material from the research environment into the manuscript, but I want to effectively manage versions of the book and not edit it with each new fact.

Currently, the Research root of the website has only a few entries. As I sort through the material on the old website, I'll move more here. As I previously said, the research branch is organized like the book. If you open that page you will see topics associated with each chapter. In this section if you branch to a particular set of research pages, you will be able to browse up or down using the BACK NEXT buttons at the bottom of the pages. These links will only take you up and down the set of pages dealing with research on a particular chapter. You can return to the main menu using the buttons at the top of the page.
