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.

Pictures of Bern, Switzerland

I'm not one much for wanting to visiting foreign countries, but after seeing these pictures of Bern, Switzerland...I'm quite awed and impressed. Maybe I'll have to take a family history trip over there someday...It does look quite crowded. I bet that is why Hans Jacobsen Hartje wanted to leave...he needed some elbow room!

There is also Temple over there as well...pretty neat. There is a neat history of the Bern Temple. Pretty cool stories about it. I didn't even know there was a temple in Bern, let alone that is was the first temple erected outside of the USA! (well in the Latter Days that is)
