started originally as my "homepage."  Long before facebook and LinkedIn, techie guys like me put content about their interest and families on the web.  Who can even remember "My Space" (which I never used).....

Over the years though the content that got regular traffic was the information on the descendants of Gedeon Merlet, a French Huguenot that arrived in the "New World"  of New Amsterdam (Staten Island) on October 12, 1662.  There are a few spellings of this man's last name, but in general all the folks in the United States with any of the variant spellings (see note below) can trace their ancestry to this world traveler.  I am one of these people - a direct descendant of Gedeon!

So the site now primarily exists to house a collection of this information.  Everything I have is on this site.  I personally did not research and gather this information, so if you contact me I may not be able to give you any additional insight other than the content on this site.

I have obtained permission to re-post articles to the best of my ability.  However, if there is something on the site that you wrote and do not want shared I will gladly take it down - just ask.  The genealogy community is a pretty awesome bunch of people generally eager to share what they learn - and for that I am very grateful.  If you would like to submit relevant information to be posted here please let me know.

Thank you for visiting the site!
