My name is Tricia (von Bose) Allen and I am the creator of this website. I was born in February 1977, and started doing genealogy when I was 14 years old. I have always been fascinated by the von Bose family coat of arms and motto. They were actually some of the main factors in my decision to major in German in college. I am a high school German teacher (currently taking a few years off to be a stay-at-home Mom). I hope you enjoy the website and learning more about the von Bose family.
