I've started a new free space project: Glassboro New Jersey Families.

Glassboro is located in Gloucester County, New Jersey and, as the name suggests, was known for it's manufacturing of glass. Some early family names include Stanger, Heston, Carpenter, Whitney, and others.

Stop by, say hello, help out. Thanks!

I have the history of the Stanger (Stenger in Europe) family.  We have the birth records of all the children and other primary source documents.  A team of researchers led by Luc Stenger has been working on this for years.  Many of the published accounts incorrectly say the Stangers came from Dornhagen (or something like it) they actually came from Wingen Sur Model and we have an international team of genealogical and historical experts to prove that. Also I descend from Anna Stenger married to Peter Walter in the 1600s who were operators of glass factories (hutten) in Meisenthal and Goetzenbruck in what is now Moselle France.    I would love to become part of this project as I admin the Yahoo Groups list Stenger and Stanger Families, am an officer in GenVerre an international group dedicated to the family history of glass and crystal makers and their craft,  and am also co-moderator of the yahoo groups Moselle list,  How do I join this project?
