In order to make this site as accurate as possible, I would like to ask any family members who have any additional information, corrections, or photographs to please submit as much as they can.  Send information or scanned photographs to


Wirth Family, mid 1920'sThe purpose of this site is to provide information about the Plasschaert and Wirth families and to give a glimpse of the past during the turn of the century.  More than 300 descendants have been found in the two families covering nearly 200 years.  Nearly 80 photographs of family members have been added to the site to give an added dimension to an otherwise impersonal list of names and dates.

The goal was to make the site as accurate as possible.  While most of the information contained herein is believed to be correct, mistakes can be made and therefore visitors to this site are asked to submit any information, corrections or additions to the family tree.  Photographs and historical accounts are also greatly appreciated.  Any information can be sent to and it will added as soon as possible.
