Beam Family History document!

My grandmother attended a number of Beam genealogy family reunions in the 90s where she participated in an effort to publish a Beam Family Book. I contacted the genealogist hired to head the effort who told me that the book was never published - but that there were free .pdf files available online.

I've never been able to amass the entire book; I could only find the introduction, the bit about my g-g-g grandfather, and the bit about the first Beam (Bohem, Boheme) in North America.

My mother found one of her mom's cousins (a fellow that she knew from her childhood) online who has the ENTIRE Beam Family History. He's sending it along.

AWESOME.


I wonder who else is playing Keeper of the Books?


There's a Beam still on the Canada homestead around Niagra Falls that spearheaded the entire book/reunion effort. I should message him.

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
