The HFFA was formed to foster and perpetuate research into the genealogy of Heinrich Frey, his wife Anna Catherine Levering and their descendants.  Heinrich emigrated from Altheim in the province of Alsace, Germany to the United States of America.  He arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in October 1685 and eventually settled in Germantown, Pennsylvania.

A Message from the President of the HFFA

 

Dear Family,

 

As a direct descendant of Heinrich Frey, we welcome you to read further into our website. 

 

We are all volunteers interested in our genealogy and hope to assist you on your family research. 

 

If you find this website interesting and are a direct descendant, we invite you to join our wonderful organization.  Membership is currently $25 a year.  It is simple to join!  Complete your information on the “Contact/Join” tab and send to Mrs. Marti Frye, Member Chair, or send it to me at President@hfrey.com 

 

Our biennial reunions are held in the USA where we have had, and may have today, a family presence.  They usually run from a Wednesday to Sunday with two days of exploring the local cemeteries and sites related to the history of our forefathers, plus a day for a business meeting.  During our business meeting we include local speakers knowledgeable about our family heritage, speakers from the family who have done their own research and/or visited other sites around the world of our forbearers.  We also try to include local tourist attractions as we also learn about our heritage from these sites.  Past reunions have been held in Winchester, Virginia; Kansas City/St. Joseph, Missouri; Morgantown, Pennsylvania, southeast Kansas; central Texas and Pacifica, California. 

 

We are here to support and encourage our family to learn more about their direct lineage.  Let’s work together to fill in the gaps on our family tree!

 

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our 2017 Reunion in Hannibal, Missouri in June 2017!

 

Gene Frye
