Jim Jurista and Bill Mac Donald have been excellent editors of the Lounsbury Tree, a newsletter dedicated to promulgating genealogical information about the family name of Lounsbury with all its spellings, such as Loundsbury, Lounsbery, and Lonsbury, to name the more common. You are welcome to post questions and comments here to be read by others interested in Lounsbury genealogy. SPAM will be cheerfully deleted. Links for issues of the Lounsbury Tree will be available on this site.
