A collaborative effort between any and all interested parties (and/or descendants) to collect, confirm, and accurately complete the profiles and family trees of the Pioneers and First Families of our Swiss Mennonite Emigrant Ancestors. Sub projects could included "Cleaning David Martin's Tree", "Descendants of The Reverend Bishop Hans Haas Herr", and "The Weber Brothers of Weaverland and Weberthal". Collaborators please feel free to revise and/or edit the project description, add Patriarchs (and Matriarchs) of additional relevant First Families, suggest other potential sub-projects, provide links to research materials and other resources for the gathering of information, and to invite all of your Swiss relatives to join the project. Organizers and Leaders (and their ideas and suggestions for moving forward through this monumental task) are welcome, as this will be no easy feat.
