Huffers & Related Families in the U.S. & Elsewhere


Welcome to my Huffer Website! This is a work in process: so far I have posted my research on Descendants of Johannes Hoffert of Berks Co, PA (my 7th-great-grandfather) and several other primary Huffer lines. This site also includes some of the ancestral lines for my wife (Wagner, Talcott and more) and for me (Huffer, Burnham, Clevenger, Shirley and more). I have one primary goal for this website: to make it easier to share my genealogy information with family (whether closely or distantly related) and friends. If you have any questions or comments about the information on this site, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Updated 4/13/2015French Huffers!
