Welcome to The Strong Family site where you can keep up with all the happenings in our lives.

This family name originally was Strenk, and these ancestors immigrated from Poland sometime around the turn of the last century. Most of them originally settled in the north central PA, Allegheny Mountain area.

Until fairly recently the exact spelling of the last name was not in question. However, in 2000 we noticed that the stone with the family name on it at St. Mary’s cemetery in Blossburg, had the spelling Strek. I have personally seen an old church directory that had the names listed as Strenk. It’s likely there was some mistake on the stone, but I’d love to hear the story behind that one.

I also have a list of my favorite weather links here. As a former Assistant Director of a public astronomical observatory in Miami, I learned a lot about the weather. As an astronomer in South Florida we were often watching the weather instead of the stars.

Most of this site is for friends and family only, so if you are one of those and want a password to get in, please send me an email and request access.
