This is the personal genealogical research site of Laura Weber.

I am a descendant of an American Revolution Patriot, a Union Soldier of the American Civil War, an Irish immigrant from the Great Potato Famine, a Russian Jew during anti-Jewish pogroms, a German baker at the famed Waldorf Astoria, a Kentucky Derby winning horse trainer, and countless other amazing and unique individuals.

I have actively been working, and some may say obsessing, over my personal genealogy for nearly two decades. During that time, my family tree research has grown to contain well over 11,000 individuals spanning nearly 20 generations.

On this website you'll be able to navigate the very basics of my extensive family tree research. I encourage you to find your own ancestors and explore their families. In order to protect the privacy of living people, you cannot search for or view information for any living person.

Content will occasionally be updated as research continues and families grow. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Collaboration is a valuable genealogical tool.

I am also the owner of Genealogy Uprooted LLC, a genealogical research company. You can check out my business site and read my blog HERE.
