I have an adopted person in my family and I am currently working with another adopted person to try to trace her biological family as our DNA converges. If I can help someone find a lead to their biological family I would be thrilled.
I have multiple lines with German areas represented in my ancestry. Surnames include Woerner, Reiss, Manger, Bauer, Koenig, Pfeiffer, Schniederalbers, Neihoff, Schulte, Eufinger, Rucker, Gebhardt, Werner, Voelkening, Hartung among others.
I belong to a large international organization dedicated to preserving the history of glass / crystal makers and their craft. Genealogy is a big part of our mission. I am happy to volunteer to check into any glass making related genealogy. I have over 10,000 people in this part of my gedcom alone.
I have found links to profiles with no owners in other venues and that is frustrating. I would look for names that intertwine with my surnames for any that need a home... Also having a real adopted person in our family I like helping those who are looking for family and have no clues or links to help them.
I love the chat, great way to meet people on the site. Lots of fun!
Laura Bozzay's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Laura or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Laura:

My fifth Great Grandfather was Martin Aldolphus Eberhart. The Eberharts came to America in 1773 from Karlsbrunn, in the County of Nassau-Saarbrucken in Germany, where they were glassmakers. Once in America, members of the family were instrumental in establishing America's early glass industry at the Amelung factory in Frederick County, Maryland and later, in Fayette and Greene Counties, Pennsylvania in partnership with Albert Gallatin.
