Welcome to the Courtright Family web site.

Owned, operated, and designed by Mitch Courtright, this is the web site for Courtrights (and its spelling variants) everywhere. I hope this electronic vehicle will serve to bring Courtrights closer together intellectually, if not geographically, through communication, sharing, and a common history.

As such, genealogy is only partly a driving force behind this site. I'm an Intranet System Administrator by trade, and an Internet Site Designer by hobby. This site helps me learn new web technologies and keeps me up-to-date on old.

To navigate, main sections are linked at the top while each section's pages are linked to the left.

I hope you enjoy what I've put together here.

A Courtright called Mitchel

I'm continuing to work, more or less steadily, on publishing my grandfather's memoirs, Reminiscences of Maywood Courtright. If anyone has a copy of his memoirs along with some spare time, I'd be most grateful for the help! Just send me an email and I'll let you know what pages still need to be done. :)

Completed work on my grandfather's log "Trip to Mexico, 1940." He logged entries virtually every day of his family's 2 month summer vacation to the Mexico City area.

I set up a Flickr® API that integrates with this site. If you have a Flickr account, visit the photo page for instructions. If you don't have one, click here to sign up.

Grace Elizabeth Courtright has begun contributing a small album of photographs. Of particular interest is the one of her as a baby with her father Raymond Douglas Courtright that was probably taken circa 1926.

I added a gallery of John Earl Courtright's oil paintings. At this time there are only a few but Grace Lynn, his neice, is working on photographing what she has and sending them to me. I'll post more as she proceeds.

Rosemary Grembla


Rosemary died at age 75 the with the same physical strength and vitality she lived with her entire life. She died by choice through VSED, Voluntary Stopping Eating and Drinking, seeing her Alzheimers would take her down a road she didn't want to put her family or herself through. In choosing this, she gave her biggest gift of all to the friends and family she left behind - they were able to know her as the vibrant, loving, intelligent, thoughtful, independent and incredibly healthy woman she always was.

Rosemary Grembla was born in Whittier, California in 1946 and attended Catholic school where she played all the sports allowed to women: basketball, volleyball and softball. Her senior year she was the president of the Girls Athletic Association, on the honor roll, and received the Athlete of the Year award.
