I am looking for any information about the Roster family that settled in the area of Mott North Dakota in the early 1900's. My grandfather is Joseph Roster. I know they came from around Budepest (sp.) Hungaria, but that is all that I know. Any info at all would be appreciated.

I am not sure if this will help, but my grandfather was Pete Roster from Mott, North Dakota. I still have conact with my two great uncles, John Roster and Connie Roster. There are two Roster's in the Toledo, OH area (Ervin and Dennis) and I have found out recently that there are some in California as well.

You are definately a cousin then. I am the granddaughter of Joe Roster, who was the brother of Pete, John and Connie. I spoke to Aunt Vi a few weeks ago and she is going to try to help me put together any of the Roster family tree that they can remember. I'll be back in ND for Thanksgiving. Thank you for answering. Keep in touch! My e-mail address is ar7270@earthlink.com.

I am another grandaughter of Pete and Vivian Roster. My first cousin Jennifer wrote to you in October. I remember meeting your grandfather on a trip to Mott as a child. He was lots of fun and had kind eyes. He gave us all kinds of "treasures" to play with to keep us entertained. Unfortunately, because we lived in Ohio, we didn't get to see much of our family out in North Dakota. I do have some general information about the Rosters, but you probably have what I know already. A good source of information is my mother's sister Roselyn Winesman (Roster). She visits John and Connie fairly frequently.

Thank you for replying. Also thank you for the memory of my grandfather. I know I miss him dearly. I sent Aunt Vi a whole bunch of forms to pass around to any family members that might have any information on the Roster family. I have close to none. My mother doesn't remember too much, except the names of her grandparents. She really doesn't have any dates. I have been able to find some land records, but that only tells me that the Rosters were "in country" in 1912. I appreciate the lead. I'll try my best to follow up on it. Thanks again!

You are welcome. Try Roselyn Winesman. She really does have a lot of history on the family. I will also try to find out some information regarding a cousin of my grandmother. She married a Mormon and from what she told me, they have to do a complete family tree. I have no idea where these records are kept but they should have everyone she was related to at the time. I am not sure how to find this database, but if you do, my grandmother's maiden name was Vivian Babcock. Good luck!
