      Hello fellow reseachers and friends,

      May was a sad month for my family, as my dear sister-in-law
      (my brother's wife) passed away suddenly on May 5. Her
      death was unexpected and sudden, we are thankful she did
      not suffer but her passing was a shock to us all. I have
      not had much time to work on the websites but I do have
      some items to share with you:

      Peer Family History Book Completed!

      Good news! After more than 20 years of research, the Peer
      book is near completion!

      The Peer Family in North America: Vol. 1 Jacob & Anne Peer,
      Immigrants from Sussex Co. New Jersey to Upper Canada in
      1796, a study of the first two generations (including
      documents, maps and photos) is scheduled for publication
      July 1, 2008.

      Volume 1 contains narrative (footnoted) chapters on Jacob
      Peer Sr, and each of his children listed above. 32
      documents (wills, land petitions, land records, etc) are
      included in this volume, as well as maps and family group

      Also included is the 21 page article Origins of the Pier
      Family in the Netherlands and an Update of their Connection
      to the Ostrander Family by Lorine McGinnis Schulze and
      Chris Brooks formerly published in the July 2000 issue of
      The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record

      Subsequent volumes are in process for each individual in
      Generation 2 (Jacob & Anne's children) and their
      descendants. Interested descendants may sign up for
      notification of publication and updates by writing to

      Include your name, and the Volumes you are interested in
      (Vols 1-9). For a list of children in Generation Two, plus
      Volume Numbers, please see


      An order form will be added to the page when Vol. 1 is back
      from the printers. I am very excited about completing the
      books after all these years.
