Faded Into the Mists of Time
Michael J. Von Gebel


Welcome to my family history section of the Faded website.  Working on my family history for over 30 years has been my life’s passion.  My genealogy format here at Faded gives very brief snapshots of my direct line.  I have over 31,000 people in my family tree maker and close to 5,000 photographs on file here at home along with file cabinets full of documentation, so I may have what you need. 

If you have information or pictures to share or you need information or pictures email me at vongoebel@hotmail.com  If you find an error please email me so I may correct it. 

I am a big believer in giving credit where credit is due.  The internet is a great tool for doing genealogy yet shouldn’t be a substitute for doing actual work in the field such as visiting libraries, courthouses, cemeteries or visiting elderly relatives and friends to gather hard documentation. I hope you enjoy your visit to Faded into the Mists of Time. Happy Hunting!
