People of Peace

As with many families, our family has a history of many who fought, died, and were imprisoned for their faith. Their belief systems were essential to the core of who they were. Some were famous (yes, we have a few of those); most were not.Montbeliard Mennonite Church

This page provides linkages to ManyRoads Religions source documentation libraries as well as to most of the family history associated with “The Faith of our Fathers”.

The religions noted here are those where exceptional belief systems caused family members to be ostracized, jailed, or expelled from their ‘greater’ community. To state it another way, the communities emphasized here were persecuted in their ‘original’ homelands. In large part, these people of faith were either accepted or tolerated once they arrived in the United States. (N.B.: It is worth noting that all of these were people of peace.)
