  • This is a collection of family history notes and letters gathered and researched by Charles E Ashabraner. I transcribed these hanwritten documents, organized them, and annotated them with my comments in blue type. The original start date for this collection is not stated on any of the documents, but speculation based on certain events referanced might sugest sometime in the 1920s. A few updates were added as time went on.

Hi Steven, I just visited your page and links and you have done a wonderful job for your family. I am researching Ashabranner in regard to the Gibbs family. I just began the search and it was a delight to find a sourced reference page. The young people of today who are interested in family and genealogy will leave an even bigger footprint and legacy than those of us who came before. I thank you for all you have done and hope others will take time to stop in and thank you as well. Again, You have done a marvelous job on your family!
