I have German ancesters and am looking for more information about the Bartels family before 1790. At that time they lived in Pennsylvania. I found the Bartels name in Germany in the late 1600's but have not been able to make any connection between the German Bartels and the Pennsylvania Bartels. Any advise would be greatly appreciated and I will share whatever information I am able to find. I would like be have a German Project Badge. Thank you.
