Welcome to!

I have created for a couple of reasons.

First and foremost is my desire to learn the nationality of my first Umphress ancestor to arrive in America.  I have heard many family stories and have been told the Umphress patriarch possibly came from England, or Scotland, or Wales, or Ireland.  While these stories no doubt contain elements of truth, they can't be considered solid evidence.  Second, I want to discover how the various Umphress clans are related and make contact with them.  If you are an Umphress and don't know who I am, I want to hear from you!

Now that you know some of the purposes of this site let me share a few of the specific uses I have in mind.  This site is meant to be used as:

  • A repository of Umphress family stories, history, and documents

  • A gateway for the various Umphress clans to share their knowledge

  • A forum for people interested in the Umphress line to exchange information

  • A virtual notice board to post information about upcoming family reunions

This site is still under construction and has a long way to go before it is finished.  Features mentioned above may not be operational at the moment, but I am working on them as time allows.  If you have any ideas or suggestions, questions, or material to add to the archives, please contact me.

Thanks and have a great day.
