My name is Eric Pearson, and my second great-grandmother is Barbara Guetterman. As such, I'm pleased to provide this web site so everyone within our Guetterman family can share and exchange information.
Most of the information provided on this site was obtained from corresponding with relatives and researching public records. That is to say this is a family group effort, and we still need for more of our relatives to help. It's really simple, just contribute some bit of information about your branch of the family. For many of us are worried there's a ton of information (familytrees, photos, letters, books, etc.) that will end up lost forever. For myself, I know when one of my grandmothers died most of the family photos ended up being thrown out because everyone looking at them didn't know who the people were. My branch of the family had lost context through these people in past generations. This overwhelming fact has compelled me in realizing we're all personally responsible in preserving our families heritage for future generations.
Therefore, I urge you to get those photos and documents copied, scanned or digitized. Then send them to me in behalf of all our relatives. Let's use the internet to our advantage in having a central place for preserving our family treasures from years gone by.

Thank you, and please enjoy our family website,
