Welcome to the Foor Family Genealogy page! This page is devoted entirely to FOOR research. It's a conglomeration of information I've obtained since I first started researching the name in 1981. Typically documentation comes from marriage, birth, death, and cemetery inscriptions, as well as wills, pension records, and more.

When I originally put the database online in 1997, I began encouraging other FOOR descendants to take the opportunity to email me with any additions and corrections. The database has grown from about 5000 to over 35,000 (not all are Foor's or their descendants) as I find more information, and more passer-byers, such as yourself, take the time to include their information as well. The database is constantly updated offline, and I make every attempt to upload the newest one every 4-5 weeks, typically the first week of each month. If you are a FOOR or a FOOR descendant, please search the online database to see if you are there, or if the information is correct. To make corrections or additions, email me.

The majority of the FOOR descendants in the database come from Bedford county of PA, and very early lineages beginning in Fairfield and Brown Counties of Ohio, though many lineages spread out to such states as, MI, IN, IL, IA, KY, MO, WA, TX, NM, CA. Because my own particular FOOR lineage is the one that comes into Fairfield Co., OH, by 1828, there is quite a bit of documentation on FOORs who descend from the pre-1850 Ohio FOOR's. Also, because I did so much research in Bloom Twp., Fairfield County, I also started a Genealogy in Bloom Twp., Fairfield County, OH site and merged the the two databases together since there was so much overlapping.

Below are several links. If you're having any trouble searching the database, please read Hints on How to Search the Database. Typically, since there are so many FOOR(e)s within this database, it's to your advantage to search on maiden names of wives, grandmothers and aunts by using the Search by Surname feature. Please be sure and 'Bookmark' (Netscape Users) this site, or add it as a 'favorite' (Internet Explorer users) so you can come back to it often!

I will always answer guestbook questions or comments. However, sometimes people who've used the guestbook don't put their ids in correctly. If you do not hear from me within a weeks' time, feel free to email me directly. Also, anyone with FOOR queries or comments are more than welcome to use the guestbook to post them. And one last thing. People have asked me, in the past, why I have concentrated on the name FOOR. Honestly, I'm not quite sure :) My own FOOR lineage comes into Fairfield county, Ohio and worms it's way up into Henry, Lucas and Wood counties of Ohio where my last FOOR surname existed--my maternal great-grandmother, Emma Mae Foor, wife of Abraham Strayer. In my attempts to find a link into PA, I gathered a multitude of Foor data. I use to research all branches of my lineage, but several years ago I just ran out of time in which to do so. Not wanting to drop genealogy altogether, I decided to keep researching the surname FOOR because I had acquired so much information and wanted to make sure it was made available to interested persons such as yourself. Enjoy the Foor Family Genealogy page! And please email me with any updates, corrections and additions. Information on how to submit your updates is included in a link below.
