Welcome To My BRANTNER - HOOVER Family History Site
This site started in 2000 as simply a presentation of my parents' family history book,
but it kept growing as a genealogical site. The book has been moved to a secondary spot in order
to provide the genealogical data first.
I've chosen to present the data in group sheets, with pedigree charts and surname shortcut links to hopefully guide the visitor.
Ancestral pictures, cemetery pictures, and obituaries have been added as primary source data.
The unselfishness of those who have generously contributed data, pictures, and obituaries to these pages is greatly appreciated.
I hope you find my site informative and useful as we preserve, celebrate, and share our family heritage.
I covet your comments, questions, corrections and additions.
NOTE:In March, 2016 this site will cease as I discontinue paying for a web host.
As stated in my previous note, I will never lose my love of genealogy and my involvement with other researchers. But since 2012, I have been retired from active research and the "thrill of the search." It has been a great ride.
For my offsite database, I have used BROTHER'S KEEPER ® software since the pre-Windows days. It is written and frequently
updated by John Steed. A shareware version and registration information are available at Steed's official homepage:

QUOTATION OF THE MONTH, OR WHENEVER
Note: I've suspended my monthly contribution of the sage, wisdom, and observation of others
as related to the agony/ecstasy of genealogy. I continue to promote "preponderance of the evidence" as a
more logical goal than the elusive "truth" or "proof" that some think exists.
