Welcome to the Simon Family Genealogy Website.

This site houses information collected by, about and for the Simon family, primarily in the United States but also around the world.  Since our family, like all others, is a dynamic one, adding births, deaths, marriages, etc. is an ongoing task.

We need your help!  If the information you see here is incomplete or inaccurate, it is either because we are missing the most current data or because the data we received is inaccurate.  Just let us know and we’ll correct the situation! (Visit the Contact section.)

As of November 1, this website now requires login to access.
