This website, begun 9 September 1997, is companion to the January 1998 published book, “The Complete Loy History, featuring descendants of Martin Loy who migrated from Germany to America in 1741.” Unlike the book, this site extends to other Loys as well as Martin’s descendants.
Since 1982 I’ve come across many Loy branches, mostly from the immigrants to America by 1750. After viewing success of the Gen-Web project, I began this page to link Loy researchers worldwide.
To address questions I’ve been frequently asked about the website and The Complete Loy History book, I put together a page of Frequently Asked Questions and Possible Asked Questions (FAQs and PAQs).
Links from Loy Migrations to America by 1750 and Loy Migrations to America After 1750 will give information on the immigrants’ children and, in some cases, following generation. With hope, other researchers will have more detailed information contained on their own sites, which I can link by URL to this site. “The Complete Loy History Website” not only includes Loys who came to America, but those who stayed in Europe and/or migrated to other countries. As more information develops, these will also be mentioned in this site.
