Peer Family History Book Completed!

Good news! After more than 20 years of research, the Peer book is near completion!

The Peer Family in North America: Vol. 1 Jacob & Anne Peer, Immigrants from Sussex Co. New Jersey to Upper Canada in 1796, a study of the first two generations (including documents, maps and photos) is scheduled for publication July 1, 2008.

Volume 1 contains narrative (footnoted) chapters on Jacob Peer Sr, and each of his children listed above. 32 documents (wills, land petitions, land records, etc) are included in this volume, as well as maps and family group charts.

Also included is the 21 page article Origins of the Pier Family in the Netherlands and an Update of their Connection to the Ostrander Family by Lorine McGinnis Schulze and Chris Brooks formerly published in the July 2000 issue of The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record

Subsequent volumes are in process for each individual in Generation 2 (Jacob & Anne's children) and their descendants. Interested descendants may sign up for notification of publication and updates

Include your name, and the Volumes you are interested in (Vols 1-9). See the list of sons and daughters of Jacob & Anne Peer, plus Volume Numbers.

An order form will be added to the page when Vol. 1 is back from the printers. I am very excited about completing the books after all these years.
