About Benson Family of New York
Please sign in to see more.
I have been putting together the information for this family tree for a few years  now. It is not complete.
  
 My roots are German, Italian, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, French-Canadian, and English.

Although many parts of the family have moved away, my ancestors pretty much remained  in the Bronx, and lower Westchester County area, Yonkers and Mt. Vernon, New York.

I can prove my Benson line back to Chauncey S. Benson, born in Vermont in 1821. I  have found several different trees claiming to have found Chauncey's father. But all  of these seem to be undocumented. I will continue to track down any source that  proves who Chauncey's father is.
      
 For privacy reasons, only information about the dead can be viewed by the general  public. To view information about the living, a guest password is required.      
 This page really serves two purposes. The first is for other genealogists possibly  researching the same people that I am, to get in touch with me. The second is for my  living relatives. This is the easiest way to share information with them.      
 If any family members have photographs or documents that they would like to share, I  would be happy to put them on this page. Just E-mail them to me. If you'd like, you  can even send me your favorite photo of yourself. I want to make sure I get  your "good" side. I also want to know about any incorrect or missing information.  Please let me know.

I have added a person named "Photographs, Unknown", and have filed all unidentified  photos of people I believe might be family under this name.  If you get an extra  minute, please take a look at these photos, and let me know if you recognize any of  them.
      
 I would also like to give credit to the other geneologists who have helped with this  project, especially my partner Kevin Preiss, Valerie Benson-Danielson, and Kathleen Benway- Beardsell.
      
 I update this page often, so please check back now and then. This is a work in  progress.
