Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Several years ago I was extensively involved in researching the family history of all Dummer families in the USA and Canada. For a couple of years I even managed to publish a quarterly geneaological newsletter, "The Dummer Family in America," which at last publication was mailed to nearly 500 Dummer and related households in the USA. Recipients frequently submitted information about their lines for entry into a database, which I still retain but has not been updated for several years. I am now once again able, on a much more limited basis, to get back to my genealogical activities. Internet advances have made this an all-new ballgame, so I will need some time to become acquainted with new resources and to upload my research for public access. In the meantime, I suspect that several past correspondents have found or will find their way to this site, and I wanted to give them this opportunity to get back in touch! (My mail list is largely outdated, I suspect, and email addresses were not in common use "back then".) I look forward to working with folks once more! My primary focus for new research will be the Canadian Dummers in New Brunswick and the related lines in northern New England, but I'd be glad to share what I have with other researchers. Thanks!
