Unknown Loomis Hero of WWII
I have just finished reading a great book about Alfred Lee Loomis and would recommend it to anyone interested in a family member who was behind a lot of scientific research and development that helped win the war. Very much the unsung hero. Here is a link to a review of the book. Let us know here at Loomis Families of America what you think of the book.

Revolution of Forms
Just listened to a great interview on our local NPR station with John Loomis as guest. He talked about his 1999 book, Revolution in Forms and the recent release of a film based on the history presented in this book. This history is the Castro Revolution and the effects it had on art/architecture in Cuba. Please follow the link above for a fascinating description of this book.

Over the years the work involved with collecting family information and helping those who are seeking information about their family heritage has made it difficult or impossible to put together a regular newsletter. So a lot of information about what goes on within this family association goes unnoticed. I am happy to announce our new Loomis Families of America Forum page. Please visit this page for current updates and comments, and please feel free to respond with your comments and thoughts.

With the continued advances on the web, Google Books has now scanned a copy of the 1908 Loomis Family in America. We have not reviewed the copy to determine if all pages are there or are correct. The copy we offer on CD is scanned from the original 1908 proof sheets, pristine in condition. Our CD has been our main source of donated funds to continue to provide this website and funding for research. We wished to alert you to the Google copy, for we do support their efforts in making public domain books available to the public that otherwise would be hard or impossible to obtain otherwise. The tremendous value to historical and family research is beyond value. Please keep us in mind should you find the Google edition helpful. Your continued financial support is always welcomed and appreciated.

The Loomis Families of America
Dedicated to Preserving the Family HeritageThis web site is dedicated to all the descendants of Joseph Loomis who, with his family emigrated from England in 1638 and established his homestead in Windsor, Connecticut.
The Loomis family has been a part of the fabric of American History from this country’s very beginnings. Coming to the shores of the New World landing at Boston Harbor in 1638, just eight years after the founding of Boston, Joseph Loomis brought his family seeking a new life and hoped for prosperity.
From here the family wintered in Dorchester, Massachusetts and in 1639 traveled overland to the Connecticut Valley, where Joseph established his Homestead at Windsor, overlooking the great Connecticut River near the mouth of the Farmington River.
Today, the original Joseph Loomis homestead still stands and is part of the Loomis family heritage carried on by The Loomis Chaffee School for boys and girls.
From here, the family continued to be pioneer’s in America’s history, Inventors, Entrepreneurs, mathematics, philosophy, art, science, business, politics, there is hardly a profession that a Loomis descendant has not put a stamp on.
And the land, forging the Oregon Trail, mining the gold fields of the Yukon, where there are new opportunities, a Loomis is sure to go!
In the pages of this website will be published the many exploits of this family, both the good and not so good, (yes there are a few black sheep as well, click on The Loomis Gang ) and links will be added to web sites that offer Loomis family information.
