About the Johns Crest


The original group was established July 3, 1997, to bring together all researchers interested in this surname.  Since then it has continued to grow covering the entire United States.   Our group is dedicated to completed, professional research documenting our ancestor for eternity.  Our mission is to collect basic Johns family data, to share that data with others of similar interest, and to create an effective organization to share facts and fun.  We are not a commercial venture.

In Memory of

Karen Hoefflinger Salisbury

Karen Salisbury


This website was created by the late Karen Hoefflinger Salisbury, who put untold hours of time and energy into this site. Karen was a professional genealogist and her years of research on the Johns family in Virginia and Kentucky qualified her as a national expert. Many of us will long remember the messages "from the pink room" that she posted on JOHNS-L and JOHN-L. They are legend. She was a dynamic woman of keen intellect, humor and wit, and those of us who were fortunate enough to know her will never forget her. I will always be indebted to Karen for her friendship and for the passion and energy that she put into Johns research.

Many thanks to Susan Chambless for the effort and work she put into this site. She took over as webmaster after Karen Salisbury and added to and updated the site. Thanks for everything, Susan.
