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.

Video of Grandp Harty Interview

Here is a great piece that my cousin Celesta Krantz must have shot quite a while ago. It was taken in February 1997, not long before my Grandpa Harty (Paul Hampton Sr) died. It is quite a treasure! I sure miss listening into those many conversations of my aunts and uncles and Dad talking with Grandpa.

Thanks, Celesta, for doing the interview and then putting this snipit of the video out for us to see. Great stuff!!!

You're welcome.

I don't know why it took me so long to get the video transferred onto VHS (The DVD and the Internet video took an hour, tops. I'm just glad I have the applications to do that now).

Take care!
