Searching for information on my father, Joseph William Strang, born in 1909 and deceased in 1995.
His father's name was Joseph Strang and his mother was Mary Grotsky. Family seeems to be from Philadelphia. I know of no relatives except my own two sisters, Maryellen and Helen. I believe the ancestry is Polish.

John Strang born 1779 in Sdterlinshire Scotland. Married Margaret Clelland Born 1784 married in 1800? Migrated to Chatham, Canada and then to Millburn, Il in 1835. Our branch of the family has lived in NE Illinois since then. A branch of Strang remained in Scotland. Some went to Alexandria Sidney, New South Wales, Australia and Canada.This info from Genealogy records complied by E. Ruth Strang Jack (deceased) October, 1972. I am currently trying to update our branch of the family. We are interested in other branches of the family.

Just for information..from Richland County, Wisconsin History, Chapter 29, part 2: George H. Strang was born in Janesville, Rock Co., Wis., Sept. 7, 1850. He is a son of Isaac and Elizabeth (Spoon) Strang. In 1854 the family removed to Sauk Co. (Wisc.) and engaged in farming. In 1883 the parents EMIGRATED TO CHARLES CITY, IOWA, where they now reside (about 1900). Could this be any of the Iowa Strangs that you are seeking?
