Welcome to the Harty Family History Site!

This site is dedicated to researching the Harty Family in the United States of America. Drawing our lineage back to Hans Jacobsen Hartje, immigrating from Bern, Switzerland and arriving in America on April 16, 1663 in New Amsterdam (modern day New York City), our line has been based out of Southeast Missouri since the late 1790's. The primary aim of this site is to gather the family together from across the Nation and even the entire world, as we seek to number our family and take pleasure in the diversity of each individual in the Harty Family.

Past and Present Harty Family

110 years of Hartys are captured between these 2 pictures. There is of course, a great deal of untold stories in between. And more stories are yet to be made. But just looking at these families, one can see not just the past and future of the family, but one can see the goodness of America and the Heritage of following Jesus Christ to the best of one's abilities.

I am so thankful for my family who have gone before me and sacrificed in one form or another so as to allow me to enjoy the privileges of life that I do today.

I look forward to meeting them all on the other side and enjoying their company some day...

I like the changes that you made. You are very creative and your work is always outstanding. The website is a worthy addition to the memorial that you have already created for the 8th MO. Good work!
