Descendants of Yoos Sooy Gathering

I posted a Sooy genealogy on the October 16, 2009 Blog which traced my friend Steve Potter, who lives in New Gretna, 8 generations back to Yoos Sooy. You can read this Blog entry by clicking on the photo below

For those of you interested in the Sooy family, I got the following email from Troy Murphy about a September 28th Sooy gathering at the Atlantic County Library in Galloway Township. You may email Troy with any questions or further information.

There will be an informal gathering of The Descendants of Yoos Sooy in the Meeting Room at the Atlantic County Library in Galloway Twp, NJ on September 28, 2013 from 10am to 4pm. The address is 306 East Jimmie Leeds Road - Galloway Twp NJ 08205. Please feel free to contact me at if you want to RSVP or get more information.

The purpose of this gathering is to exchange Family Tree information, fill in the blanks and put some faces to the names. You are encouraged to bring your Laptop Computers, Documentation and Family Photos.

It looks like a great opportunity to meet some Sooy descendants and gather some Sooy family genealogy.
