JOYCE PARKER HERVEY

DONALD GABLE HERVEY

Go to Joyce's Genealogy

I have been interested in genealogy since my grandfather took me around as a child to visit the old home places and cemeteries where members of his family were buried. When I married Don, I discovered we shared a common interest in family history, so it has become a favorite pastime of ours. Since we married in 1966, we have lived in New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas, and have visited all around the USA. Wherever we go we are usually on the lookout for family history tidbits. As a result of our travels, library research, and correspondence, we have accumulated quite a store of genealogical material, most of which relates to the Hervey or Harvey family name.

In 1984, I researched and published a family history of my maternal grandmother's family, the Crowell family of North Louisiana.

Since I have recently gotten hooked up to the Internet, it occurred to me that this would be a good medium for dissemination of our store of information. I will attempt to place in the public domain as much information as I have the time and space to present.

Happy ancestor hunting to you all.

Read DON'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY

In 1980, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. To honor them, Joyce and I published a 600+ page book, with many family pictures, titled Mayflower to the Moon - Herveys and Gables. (Order book here.) The book contains original letters and stories written by various members of the family, as well as current history and past history of the families, as far as we knew it when the book was written. Following publication of the book we collected so much information on the Hervey family that we began publishing a newsletter, Hervey Families of America Bulletin, which ran from 1985 to 1994. We did not intend to discontinue the newsletter; but we ran out of steam (and time) and just let it languish for so long we couldn't get it going again.
