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.

Ruben F. Harty II & Grandpa Harty

Here is a real good picture of my Grandpa Harty, Paul H. Harty Sr, when he was a young man, standing next to his dad, Ruben F. Harty II. The picture was taken at Ruben's home near Essex, MO, which is in Stoddard County.

I estimate the picture to be take in the late 1940's to early 1950's. This is a great picture of these two men, and I'm very pleased to be able to post it on this blog. Enjoy!

The new pictures look good on the site! Unfortunately, I do not know the boys at the bottom of the picture. I can not add anything to this picture. A little before my time. Maybe someone else can identify the boys.
