About us


For background on the history and genealogy of the ARTERBURN family,
see the online text versions of these books now available in the digital
archives of Family History Library:
Arterburn,  C. Norben,  and Janet D. Arterburn.  The Arterburn Cousins.
[S.l. : s.n., 1977?].
C.R. Arterburn, c2010.

explored.  The second book, Supplemental Notes, picks up
where this one left off.

R-Z93.  A timeline for Peter and William was presented, and
the composition of the families of Peter and William was
