This is not an “official” web site. It is simply one person’s discoveries from years of turning over rocks to see what may be hiding under them.

I grew up being told that the Stalcop family was very small, perhaps only three or four hundred members. No one knew anything about the origin of the family except to guess that maybe it was German or Scandinavian. I began this quest to uncover the family roots and folklore because of a last request made to me by my father. It has been a fascinating and rewarding journey.

I selected this method to share a few of the many records, photos, comments and exciting stories, both serious and humorous, concerning the Stalcop Family I have had the pleasure of discovering under one rock or another. It has the potential to reach the most cousins. It begins at the beginning and will in the future slowly make its way mostly down one family line toward the present. Three sons, Andrew, John and Pietter, left sons who carried on the Stalcop name. The line we will mostly follow descends from Pietter.

The name Pietter is an old and a bit more formal Swedish version of the name Peter. His brothers that also left Stalcop descendants are Anders or Andrew and Johan or John. Andrew was, without doubt, named for his paternal grandfather. Just as clear is that John was named for his own father. Jonas is a form of Jöns meaning that Jonas was probably named for his maternal grandfather, the father of Carl Jönssön.  Charles was named for his maternal grandfather, Carl Jönssön. So far no candidates have been discovered who may be the namesakes of Pietter or for the daughters in the family.

Some recent events and happenings in the Family will be featured from time to time.

Your own stories and photographs are desired and requested.  Mail them or email them.  You can write your stories in the comments box for a BLOG story.  Lots of expandable capacity.  Be sure to use real names in identifying people in photographs.
