Bishman Miller Sommers families
Family History

Bishman - Miller - Sommers

site managed by Joanne Hintz, family volunteer

This page grew from a family discussion prior to a Bishman family reunion held in January, 2000.  Our goal was to be able to share family stories, photos, and basic genealogy with family and friends as well as increase our opportunity to find new cousins  among our visitors.

While this begins as a Bishman Family page, links to family names related to the Bishmans and in turn to their relatives will be added.  Photos and biographies of current generations will not be posted for privacy reasons, but if you have a direct interest in the history of one of these families, I will forward your request to one or more of the family researchers.

Welcome, and come again.
