Hi, Laurie. I stumbled upon your Germanna One-Place Study, and I saw a need to coordinate your work with the work that Willhite-329 started in 2014 at Category: Germanna Colonies in Virginia. (It's time to combine these parallel efforts!)

I'm not a Germanna descendant, but became aware of the Germanna colonies because of my work with the Palatine Migration project. See Category: Palatine Migrants for our discussion of the boundaries we set between the Palatine Migration and the distinct settlement of Germanna that occurred in the same time period.

I have some half-baked thoughts on how the coordination of the multiple efforts should/could be carried out, but for the moment I just wanted to alert you to the other efforts.

edit recommendation:

Her parents, siblings, and "herself" lived with her grandparents Alvin and Martha (Hershberger) Kelley for many years.

"she" instead of herself in this sentence
