Sources for Mennonite Information

The Grandma database (Genealogical Registry and Database of Mennonite Ancestry) contains information on over a million individuals, most of whose ancestral lines can be traced to Mennonite communities in Prussia and South Russia. GRANDMA is produced by the California Mennonite Historical Society.

This database is available in two forms: on a CD-ROM disk as well as in a searchable online database. Both versions provide searches of the same data, but the online database is updated several times a year while the CD-ROM is only updated once every few years. The on-line version also allows you to share your family photographs with other researchers.

In additional to this wealth of data is a free standard edition newsletter.  To receive a once-a-day email message containing links to all the new articles published,

You can also subscribe to the Plus Edition here:

Dan Eastman is the webmaster and will be featured at the Feb 8-11, 2017 RootsTech in Salt Lake City, Utah. (

Do you have interesting database information to share with everyone??

Thanks for the support.
