In December 2011, Brian Rader googled the Landis History written to this website, asking
if he might obtain a CD copy of the website to use in adding to his Landis family history, since
Brian is a direct descendent of Swiss immigrant John Landis of Bucks County,
through his grandfather Lee F. Landis. After an email exchange of data, Brian emailed several images
from the much larger collection of his mother, Lois May (Landis) Rader, to Tom McFarland, who then
assembled the images and other genealogical data into this digital collection.
Brian began the study of his Landis family only recently, hoping to preserve the knowledge
of his elderly parents while it is still available. Brian's mother is a first cousin of Larry Landis,
whose studies of Landis family history considerably overlap Brian's interests, Therefore, the
Lee F. Landis album and the Larry Landis album will be cross-linked here.
However, the two albums reflect differing foci of interests, so they are presented separately.
Brian Rader lives in Henderson, Nebraska. Larry Landis, Brian Rader and Tom McFarland are
descendents of Swiss-German immigrant John Landis of Bucks County.
