Hart Families

Charles Leo Hart Sr.

We received this communication from a young man looking to to trace his family history. Although there isn’t any apparent connection to anyone in our tree I thought I would post this request to give him some visibility in case someone has a contact for him.

Hi my name is Ethan hart and I’m 16. I’ve been trying to trace my fathers history since I was 12. And I can’t get anywhere. All I can get to is where my great grand father, Charles Leo Hart sr. Was born which was in moundsville West Virginia in 1928 since there was no record of his father and who he was it makes it almost impossible to find out about my history which is really important to me. Can anyone help me out? If so email me at Thank you


The passing of a generation: Aunt Ellie RIP (1915-2013)

I received this email from one of our cousins, Bill Sayre, sent last night Tuesday Mar 12, 2013

Dear Cousins,

My Aunt Ellie, Elnora Hart Johnson, passed away today at her home in Florida. She was the last of my mother’s generation and will be sorely missed. She was attended by her daughter, Nancy and grandson, Chad, and was lucid until the end.

She had suffered a previous stroke, a recent heart attack and was believed to have had a cancerous mass in her colon.

Aunt Ellie was a surrogate mother to me and my sisters since we lost our mother (Ellie’s older sister) in 1955. She was also the person to whom the book, A Family Journal, was dedicated. I am so thankful she was able to enjoy its content between Christmas and now. She was overwhelmed by the project we all helped produce and wrote two thank-you notes to me. In fact, her daughter brought it to the hospital to share passages prior to her death.

It now falls to us in our generation to pick up the torch and hold it high. We are Harts, loving and proud.


Web Site update

workingThe site has taken on a new look as well as the addition of a more detailed and informative family tree section.  This section is now called “Genealogy” .  There are many functions to utilize; selection by surname, to detail by individual as well as many charts available to view. Most charts are available as a customized .pdf file for viewing and printing.

These are just a few of the new capabilities of  our web site. Do you want to know who was born or died today in history? Calendar

There will be more sections completed in the near future.

I invite you to check out it. We now have 3,268 individuals in our tree, 407 are living (you can’t see unless you are signed in), 726 unique surnames and over 1,500 photos attached to various people.

If you have any comments, questions or information to share, please contact us.
