This is a site for the entire Strong family, at least those who wish to participate. This includes those that are family by marriage and those that no longer have the Strong last name.
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.
