Welcome to the Motter family history page!
My name is Robin (Motter) Heise and I am a recent graduate of the M.A. program in Public History at Wright State University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and Psychology and a Master of Higher Education Administration at the Ohio State University. After spending twelve years working in administrative positions within higher education I decided that it was time for a change and time to pursue my love of history. While enrolled in the Public History program, I have had an opportunity to pursue some of my interest areas: the Civil War, Native Americans, local history, and genealogy.
I am a member of the Ohio Local History Alliance, the Society of American Archivists, American Association of Museums, the Yellow Springs Historical Society, the Greene County Historical Society, and the Greene County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. I am currently the Records Manager and Archivist at the Greene County Archives in Xenia, Ohio.
Studying my family history has always been important to me. In order to understand who you are today, you have to understand where you came from–you have to know your roots! It is my hope that this page will provide a venue to share my research on the Motter family of which I am a descendant. I also hope that this page might serve as a place for others, who have completed Motter family research, to share their stories and discuss their knowledge of the Motter family.
