This site is dedicated to sharing my BORCHERS family genealogy with others so that we may all one day find out just who those long lost ancestors were. A special thanks to those who have so generously shared their family ties with me. If you would like to share some of your research please E-Mail me, and/or sign my Guest Book . Your kindness and generosity will be greatly appreciated.
This is an ongoing search for our forebears, and new data will be added as quickly as possible. I'll be continually updating, so please come back often. I hope you will find something here that will further your research either now or in the future. Please be sure to use your REFRESH button to load the most recent additions to the pages.
If you notice anything you disagree with please let me know your source so I can make corrections.
Have fun, and thanks for stopping by!
Bob dedicated this site to the research he had done on the Borcher line. Now it is time to say that all the work that Bob has done will remain unfinished and nothing else will be added to this web site. This site is Bob's memorial. As sick as he was and as hard as it was for him to sit at the computer, he still worked to try and get more information added to these pages.
I cannot answer your questions and I cannot help you with your lines, but I can see to it that this web page remains online for those of you searching the surnames in this data base.
