Scanned image files may be photocopied or transferred to diskettes. Many photos have been archived onto CDR, which could be copied onto the hard drive of laptop computers.

About the DELONG Family (reprinted from the 1998 invitation)

The genealogy of the DELONG family has been traced back to the late 1600s, when Arie Fransen de Lange married Rachel Jansen Pier (an immigrant from Amsterdam, Holland) in the Kingston (New York) area. The three sons and seven daughters from their marriage have produced thousands of descendants living all over North America.

After the American Revolution, many members of the DELONG family left the United States and came to Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Information about these early pioneers is scarce, since there were few government or church records kept at that time.

Other DELONGs came later to take advantage of opportunities to purchase inexpensive farm land.
Many of the children of these farming families later migrated to western Canada and the United States as new land opened up.
