Welcome to the Mather Family Tree. My name is Craig Mather and I have been tracing my family roots on and off for over forty years. I began as a child, talking with my maternal great grandmother about her and her husband's family and their immigration to America from Germany. With the proliferation of Internet research sites, I have made more progress over the last few years than ever before. This website includes all of my paternal and maternal ancestors as well as those of my wife, Rachel Prochovnick. My paternal ancestors are predominantly from England and Scotland, while my maternal side of the family are from the German states of Prussia and Bavaria as well as Irish, English and Scottish immigrants from Canada. Rachel's family, both paternal and maternal, comes from Eastern
Europe: Russia, Poland and the Baltic States. I have also included the ancestors and relations of the in-laws of several of my cousins, living and deceased. I hope you enjoy searching these pages, and I look forward to your comments and additional information.
