Epp Family Genealogy
The Epp Family line can be traced back quite far. We don't know anything about their lives or any particulars, except dates. There are quite a few genealogists out there discovering their part of the Epp Family. It has been nice running into all of them online and working with them. I owe a big "thank you" to a distant cousin, Agnes Epp. She still has more information to pass along. Thanks Agnes, without you I'd be lost.
I am only going to continue with my direct line. I do have information on the other people listed. If there is someone you would like further information on, please let me know. Here we go:
