I want to help clean up profiles as time allows.
This is my mother's line. Haven't gotten back much before 1650. They are primarily in central and western Pennsylvania, but one branch moved to Columbiana, Ohio.
For over 40 years I've been researching German immigrants to Pennsylvania. Most of my family lines fall into this category, many migrating before the American Revolution. Names include Rabenstein, Swartz, Abt, Baker (Becker), Yingling (Juengling), Scheuermann (Schirmann), Fischer, Zepp (Zeff), Seifert, Minter (Geminter), I'm new at this but happy to share this interest with others.

Greetings Kathy,

Thanks for posting the source on g2g... We were all new at one time and uncertain about collaboration. When in doubt posting to g2g is great and also adding to profiles or free spaces via the public comment boxes is also good. Nearly everything can be rolled back if a serious mistake was made other than merging. Feel free to reach out to me via my profile bulletin board or a private message if I can help.

Have fun!

Hi Kathy,

I'm not sure what your trying to tell us in the message you left on William Penn's profile. His first wife is also buried at Old Jordan's Burying Ground according to the information on her profile. I have added a link to her profile in the Burial section of his profile. I hope that will help clear up any confusion. Please let me know if I didn't understand your question correctly.

Cheers, Natalie

Kathy, Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, thus coordinating with others is essential.

I see you have joined an excellent project, William Penn and Early Pennsylvania Settlers Thanks for joining.
