Our Family's Record Archive

PDF (.pdf) files require the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader (free software) or it's equivalent...  Additionally, the records files can be quite large in size and it is suggested that you use high speed internet access to view or download them.
Per our privacy policy, records pertaining to living individuals will NOT appear in this archive however we still encourage you to submit all records for living individuals for preservation. Those records will be saved and preserved for prosperity and will be made available after that particular individual has passed away.
 
Please take a few moments to read the notes below
so you can understand how this archive is set up.
 
ENTER THE ARCHIVE...
RECORDS in the archive are cataloged into FOLDERS by SURNAME, then by SUBJECT MATTER, and then by FILE NAME OF THE RECORD. Each RECORD HAS IT'S OWN UNIQUE FILE NAME..
 
The RECORD'S FILE NAME will usually contain hypens (-). Example: date-lastname-firstname-description.pdf
 
A plus sign (+) at the end of the pdf file name indicates that there are multiple entries or references in that record.
 
Two consecutive hypens/ minus signs (--) anywhere within the file name indicates that there is missing information and that there should be a name, description or reference which should appear in that record.
 
 Each RECORD'S FILE NAME is then organized or defined by DATE in an 8 digit format pertaining to year month and then day when possible, then by a LAST NAME, then by FIRST NAME, and then by DESCRIPTION/EVENT/REFERENCE and so on...

Example:
20100101-lastname-firstname-description.pdf reads:
2010 Year - 01 Month of January - 01 Day #1 - Last Name - First Name - Description - .pdf

Example: 
19790525-jungclas-daniel-report-card.pdf
