Hart Family Genealogy - Index of Names in our Families


Links to Hart Family resource materials.


Albert Thomas Hart started the Hart Family Genealogy with “Our Folk” which he started sending to family members in 1972. He contacted many family members, contacted ancestors in Germany and did a wonderful job of research in the days before computers. He sent out updates every year until his death in 1982.

Albert Douglass Hart, Sr. spent many years adding to the databases. He and Ruth visited many of the homesteads of our ancestors and expanded the family tree in all directions. One of his greatest finds was stumbling across the Hoffman monument in Preble Co. Ohio, which helped trace that branch of the family back.

Albert Douglass Hart Jr. has continued to expand the research, and has created these web pages to share our family history with other researchers.

We thank all the other family members who have added to the family knowledge base.
