I have a few ancestors and a few other profiles that I look after that were involved in the Revolutionery War.
I spend a fair amount of time merging duplicates,I believe,in some instances,it helps to break down brick walls.
Dad's mothers maiden name.
I'm mostly interested in cemeteries in Pa,and more specifically the cemeteries in Luzerne and Columbia counties.
Mom's side was Crawford on the paternal side and her Mother was a Wirsing
I have ancestors from the Harter family,the Harters appear to have married into most of the early families that came to the Nescopeck/Wapwallopen area.
My Campbell family came from Ireland about 1850.
My families were some of the earliest families to settle in this region.
I'm currently working on a project for Nescopeck,Pa as it was in or just before 1800. At that time it was an area that eventually split into about 6 different townships. I'm also working on a cemetery project for the current cemeteries in Nescopeck Twp.
Evan Owen,a Quaker whose family came to Pennsylvania with William Penn played a big part in the settling of the lower Luzerne county area of Northeast Pennsylvania. A lot of the early settlers to this region were Quakers.
Early ancestors
There appears to be a fairly large contingent of Quakers that were early settlers in Columbia County. The earliest meeting houses in Columbia County were built in Catawissa and Millville in the late 1700s,there was also a meeting house in Berwick for a short while.
Willing to help with research in Pennsylvania,especially Columbia and Luzerne counties.
My Grandparents were Campbells and Crawfords.
My Dad's family is Smith on the paternal side and and his Mother was a Campbell.
I'm as interested in early Pa history as I am about genealogy,especially,early Pa history,Palatinate and Quaker migration,the founding of Philadelphia,migration routes and such.
I'd be interested in helping with this.
I have quite a few ancestors from Wapwallopen.

I am interested in the pre-1700 area of the South Carolina families to connect with English ancestors. So far I have not found anyone else working specifically in this area.

Hi Butch, thank you for inviting me for pre-1700 projects. I'll rather will find my way in the Dutch Roots Project... or please tell me what you have discovered about my ancestors in Norway ;-)

All the best, Henk

Thank you for confirming I did the correct procedure.

I cannot seem to find the specific person to contact to officially to turn my free space into a sub project? I did manage to get the free space listing under European Countries. Was that correct?

Hi Butch,

Thank you for your comment about pre-1700.

I have previously started a free space project for Malta as there is no project for the country. It was my understanding I had to create one if it did not exist?

I am now going to promote the project with my genealogist friends involved with Maltese research and start a sub-project if possible?

Hi Butch,

I saw you updated the St. Johns Cemetery page recently and was excited to discover that we are fifth cousins, sharing the same 4th great grandparents - Hannah Doll and Jacob Ruchstein/Rustay. I'm happy to see that there is another serious genealogist in the family. You have just given me incentive to work more diligently on that line and clean up those profiles!

Happy New Year!
