I have a PDF copy of Clarence Eberman Beckel's 1936 manuscript, A Genealogical History of the Fenstermacher Family, which someone posted in a genealogy forum, and I have benefitted greatly from it. However, pages 574 to 664 are missing from the PDF file that was posted. Can anyone provide a file that contains the missing pages, or tell where it can be found? Thanks, Alan Vogel

This doesn't answer your question, but some years ago a Fenstermacher told me that the name meant "fence maker."
Frank, yes, German has many of these doubled-noun single nouns. Die Fenster = window; Das Macher = maker.
Here is a link to the complete work with ALL the pages plus an index of females that was added by Gene Fenstermacher.

It has not been OCR'ed so it is not searchable.

Thanks very much, Eric, this is a great resource. Alan Vogel

This is the only online version I could find.  Is it the same one you have?

There was a concentration of the Fenstermaker surname in Ohio from 1840 to 1920, and a greater concentration in Pennsylvania in that time frame.

My internet searching indicates that Alan has been looking for these pages for some time now.  :-)

The Lehigh University Library has the papers of the author, including draft manuscripts and notes for this book: http://digital.lib.lehigh.edu/hidden/finding.php?id=26. It stands to reason that they would also have the published book.
