Geneology Report

Our genealogist Gloria Lauber has put forth tremendous effort in behalf of the Fullmer Family Organization.

We thank her! She reports that the Zerfass line is researched back to 1649!  The Shafer line is the line she is concentrating on.  Shafer means “Sheepherder” and there are many variation to the spelling.  If you are able to help in any way with researching please let us know.  We could use your help.
