Welcome!

Bessert Family at Saugatuck State Park Beach, Summer 2007Welcome to the Bessert Family website. Don't expect too much from the site for now. We'll try to keep things up-to-date, but there's no guarantees! Check the Photos section for some family pictures.


We live in the Greater Grand Rapids area of West Michigan and very much enjoy it. Just a half hour from the Lake Michigan Beaches and a few more hours takes us to Chicago, Detroit, Traverse City and Mackinac Island. Both Linda and Chris originate from Mid/Eastern Michigan, but have called West Michigan home for more than a decade. (It also helps that Chris really likes snow and doesn't complain about having to clear all that Lake Effect snow from his driveway and sidewalks each winter.)

This is a little website set up by Chris & Linda, Rachael's proud new parents, in response to repeated requests for photographs and the latest information on how Rachael is doing. As many of you know, Chris & Linda welcomed their daughter into the world six weeks early in late June, so the birth and first few weeks of Rachael's life have been a bit less than "usual."
