The purpose of this project is to revive interest in the great legacy Ezra Eby left. Descendants of the Mennonite, Amish or Brethren in Christ pioneers are invited to submit updates so that Eby's legacy can be continued. Over the years, many people have carried on with what Ezra Eby began.Numerous family histories have been published. EZRA EBY REVIVED! combines the original Eby books, or "Freundshaft Books" as they are variously known, with dozens of family genealogies published over the years.

Family historians embarking on such an endeavor can receive any data available which will be helpful to them.
