Welcome to my Vanderslice genealogy site.
I am a Vanderslice and began work on my family tree focusing primarily on my direct line of Vanderslice relatives. My work is outlined on this site. I periodically add to this site and would welcome any additional branches that directly ties into this branch of the Vanderslice family.
Along the way I’ve also accumulated and included Vanderslice history and information and will post those on the site as I’m able. If you have any comments or corrections or wish to contribute, please contact me. Thanks!
