About Olive Tree Genealogy

During a year long recuperation from a workplace injury and operation, I began creating the Olive Tree Genealogy pages. In the winter of 1995 a small version of The Olive Tree Genealogy made its online debut.

February 1996 saw Olive Tree Genealogy move to as the OTE site. In 1998 I was only able to return to work on a part-time basis, and my enforced and unexpected "free time" allowed me to continue developing and working on Olive Tree Genealogy site. was among the first to bring primary sources to the Internet with its Ships passenger lists from the Netherlands to New Yorkin the 17th Century. Immigration is a special love of mine and I have published hundreds of ships passenger lists on Olive Tree Genealogy

Over the past 13 years, Olive Tree Genealogy has grown to encompass more than 1500 pages of free genealogy information. You can read more about Lorine and Olive Tree Genealogy
