Site Description:

This site represents information primarily relating to the descendents of Stephen (Etienne) & Frances (Françoise) [Billerey] Subra, who immigrated from France to the United States in the early 1800s. My hope is to explore our connections to European ancestors and distant living Subras found all over the world, and include their information as well! This web project was started August 18th, 2000.


If you have any information that may prove helpful in the ongoing research of the Subra family, please submit via e-mail or web form.

Jean Billerey Naturalization Documents (added 03 OCT 2005)

Jean Billerey (Billery, Bera) was my g-g-g-g grandfather who came to the United States in 1831, settling in Jefferson County, NY (Lyme, then Cape Vincent). His daughter, Françoise (Frances), married Etienne (Stephen) Subra, who also came from France.

2004 Subra Reunion Pics!  (added 04 AUG 2004) - UPDATED 27 SEP for easier viewing!

Here's pictures from the 2004 Subra Reunion, held July 24th at West Union, Iowa (Roger & Marlyn Subra's home). I haven't attempted to label the pictures, as I took as many as I could. NOTE: I air-brushed out all the ugly people, so only good-looking people are left!
If you want larger pictures, let me know which ones, and I can e-mail them to you. I had to shrink them down to make them reasonable for viewing.

"Introducing..." Subras from all over sharing about themselves (updated 8 JUL 2004).

We welcome our latest addition, María Subrá, from Spain! You may submit your information, too! Just send your info to me, and let me know that it is OK to put it on the web site. I'll also list your e-mail address unless you instruct me not too. NOTE: I'll only put information on the web site that you give me permission to do so. (page begun 10/31/2003)
