About the site
Many of our Jewish ancestors immigrated to the United States from Eastern Europe and settled in Northern Minnesota, Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. They came in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This website begins with the Garon, Kaner and Karon families and their extended relatives and includes up to ten generations going back to the late 1700ís in Eastern Europe . It also extends to the other Jewish families who settled in the northern Great Lakes region. The information collected and archived tells us that many are connected from the old country and possibly related through marriages.

The website includes family trees, photos and documents contributed by individual families or found on various genealogy related websites. Collectively they tell a story of courage and persistence in making new homes, creating new businesses and establishing Jewish communities in a new land. There are indices for family names, old newspaper articles, obituaries, cemetery markers and Jewish businesses. Check this website for information about any family names connected to this region.

Much of the general information on the website is open to the public, but the more detailed family data are password protected. For questions and requests for access, contact Allan Garon (webmaster) at allan@garon.us

Our family website had its beginnings with us, Nanci and Allan Garon, and the descendents of our grandparents. It has since been expanded to include our huge extended family, our connected families and to many of the other Jews from the Duluth Region. There are webpages for thousands of people who are family members or somehow connected. They include family trees, information, old stories and photographs. There are over 6000 pages and over 45,000 images on this website.
