Overview

At one moment in time or another, each of us has wondered about the lives of their ancestors. From where did our forebears come? Were they running away from their past or running toward their future? Were they just ordinary people or were they famous, or even infamous, individuals for their time? What views, inclinations, preoccupations or biases did they harbor that have been unknowingly passed down to us?

David A. Burpee has spent three decades researching his family background. Through this fascinating journey, he has accumulated a vast amount of information on his ancestors dating back to the original immigrants to North America.

In Biographical Sketches of Extraordinary Burpees from North America, Mr. Burpee profiles relatives who have made significant contributions to not only their immediate families but also to their local communities, states/provinces and Nations. Through these sketches, he lays out their personal motivations, beliefs, callings, accomplishments, challenges and disappointments.

As one reads these fascinating accounts, it becomes apparent that there are two common factors that connect all of these individuals over time and distance. First, they all accomplished something significant in their lives that separated them from others around them. Second, they were all related in some way to each other.

Biographical Sketches of Extraordinary Burpees from North America speaks not only to the heritage of one family but to all those readers eager to know more about the achievements and contributions of their own ancestors.
