WELCOME TO THE BETSINGER BUNCH WEB PAGES!! Iím glad you could stop by for a visit. If you have the Betsinger surname in your family tree, I GUARANTEE you will learn something new here. Grab a drink and a snack and settle down for a LONG chat!!

My goal in genealogy has always been to find my BETSINGER ancestor that came from Europe.

I have been researching the BETSINGER surname for over twenty-five years. I have traced my family to New York State, mid 1800's. In the 1980's, I wrote many BETSINGERs asking for their genealogy. I had a good response, so I may already have information on your family. Thus far, all BETSINGER families come from New York State. The next question to answer is why they left, and where they went. I think we are all related! I believe that if we can get back one more generation, we might all connect up.

I designed this site to honor my Ďrootsí- my Betsinger family members- past, present and future. Genealogy is like doing a puzzle; its making all the pieces fit correctly. I HAVE to prove my information to accept it; I canít just think this should be and accept it. To me, genealogy is more than dates; I have to know how my ancestors lived, worked, and why then emigrated, or chose a certain occupation. This is a blueprint for the future. This website is the beginning of passing this information on to my granddaughters. I donít have much to leave them; but I can leave them information about their family.

I was always that kid that stood and listened to the stories told at family reunions. I miss hearing my grandmother Betsinger and my aunts laugh as they talked at gatherings. This site is lovingly dedicated to my grandmother, Edith Fay Pratt Betsinger, and her daughters, my aunts.
