This website was started before there was such a thing as websites. My aunt Marie Amelia Foerster and my cousin Urban M. (Trey) Foerster III began work on a family tree and history in the late 1980s. Trey and I began to get more serious about the project after our retirements. Trey did almost all of the work using family documents and I helped by developing this website. We do not view this effort as completed, since our history is still being written and there any many new members to add to the Tree. But it is a good start! We hope that you find it useful. We think that the website is pretty easy to navigate around with intuitive captions. However if you would like to read or download a Tutorial which explains things more fully, look to the top of this entry portal page and you will see a caption "TUTORIAL". If you click on this it will take you to the Tutorial document which you can read on the site and, if desired, save the .pdf file to your home computer for printing or future reference.
