My name is Lee John (John) Michael Santana and I am the Webmaster of this site.
This is a picture of me and my sister, Terri-Ann Catherine Santana-Farrugia, who has become the family historian in our branch of the family and is teaching me a thing or two (as usual).
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a site for their family and even publish their family tree on the Internet.

Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 256 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Eva Grátzl (born Valter)
(1770). The most recent event is the death of Julian Enrique Santana
(Oct 30 2012).
The site was last updated on May 19 2013, and it currently has 17 registered member(s).
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Tomiser-Santana family tree site, just drop me a line, explaining your relationship to this tree (i.e., you or your relative is listed here), and, upon my verification, I will invite you to become a member.
This is especially extended to Tomiser and Baliko descendents who can trace their family back to Austria-Hungary (Jabing in the Oberwart district of Burgenland province today --- formerly Vasjobbagyi in the Felsö-Ör district of Vas province when the region was under Hungarian administration until the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire following the end of WWI in 1918 and 1921's Trianon Treaty).
The biggest piece missing is on the Tomiser side, and with this particular spelling (the common spelling is "Tomisser" and it's believed that our branch originally had an "h" as well) there are not many of us who are not related in some fashion. I'm told that my Great-Grandfather's brother Josef's official papers spelled his last name as "Thomiser." I know my Great-Grandfather, Ignatz Tomiser (who came to New York in 1910), opened his door to his relatives as they arrived through Ellis Island. They would stay for a short time, and many went west, though, because of the passing of time and relatives, we're not sure where (there's a fairly large Tomiser clan in the St. Louis, Missouri area). Drop me a line if you believe you fit this description.
Looking forward to hearing from you all! Enjoy!
