Welcome to the web site of the George and Ann Prior Jarvis Family Association. It is hoped that this site will not only provide information about George and Ann Prior Jarvis, their family, and ancestors but also help forge a sense of community among their descendants.

Association membership is open to all descendants of George and Ann Prior Jarvis. For information about the association, please contact the president, David Cottam Osborn at:

Purpose of this site:
President Joseph Fielding Smith said "It remains the responsibility of each individual to know his kindred dead. . . . Even if the [temple] work is done, then it is still each person's responsibility to study and become acquainted with his ancestors."1

This is a Family History web site. Although it contains some genealogical information, most of the contents are personal histories and stories of the George and Ann Prior Jarvis family. My hope is that this web site will help us, the descendants of George and Ann Prior Jarvis, become acquainted with and perhaps know and understand a little of the lives of those family members who have gone before us.

Now available from Family Search: now has more than 200,000 historic books available online. This includes many Jarvis family books that were previously not generally available. Of special note is Margaret Godfrey Jarvis Overson's George Jarvis and Joseph George De Friez genealogy which many of us have long wanted to see available online.
