Abstract: Genealogical material related to the history of the author's various family lines, with concentration on the ancestors and migration of the author's maternal line. The collection is comprised of Pedigree Charts and corresponding Family Group Sheets, organized from immediate to most distant relations. The primary surnames covered in the collection include Ayers, Taylor, Mings (Menzies, Minzies), Eich (Eyck), Addis (Adys, Addys), Knortzer, and DeHart. While Warren County, New Jersey is the most prominent location referenced throughout the collection, the author's research also includes additional notes regarding the family's migration from Germany, England and The Netherlands.
