Dye and Hanks family tree information for family history researchers and genealogists:

Twelve generations of the Dye family in the new world:

Our first ancestor came to America in 1639 aboard the ship "De Brant van Troyen" or "Fire of Troy" from Holstein, Denmark — now a part of Germany. He paid for his passage by working for a Mr. Jonas Bronck, clearing land near New Amsterdam, which is now known as the Bronx in NYC.

On June 13, 2015 I attended my aunt Gen Dye's 100th birthday party at an assisted-living home in St. Louis, Missouri.

Here are some photos from the birthday party, and some brief obituaries of my grandparents Fred and Clara Dye that I found in a family bible that someone brought to the party. The bible had belonged to my great-grandfather Thomas H. Dye. —click here
