    2. VICTORIA DEAN
    3. My grandfather is giving me fits! Charles William Eichelberger b. Oct 22, 1896 prob in Mecca, Indiana. Back story on him.... 1. Was put in orphanage in Clay cty, but it burned down in 1900...of course. 2. Was fostered, but not adopted by Daniel and Cordelia Winklepleck between 1896 and 1900 3. Lived with foster family til early 30s, then married my grandmother. 4. During WWI, he enlisted in Army and was told his last name was really Eichelberger. He used it for the rest of his life. 5. Have not been successful tracking his real parents down. The surrounding counties refused to give out foster/orphan records years ago when I applied. Its possible he is really not an Eichelberger. 6. Yes, I did the DNA test and lo and behold, there doesn't seem to be any Eichelberger blood in me, but other names come up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been researching him since 1990.

    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Please be sure to add vital statistics like date of birth, death, marriage, etc. Happy Hunting!

Hi, I'm new and I'm looking for some of my wife's ancestors.  In particular, I'm trying to find the parents/siblings of CATHERINE EICHELBERGER (b January 29, 1778 - d July 28, 1858 presumably in Lebanon Co PA) who married JOHN BICKEL,  JR. in about 1802.   They resided in Swatara and Bethel Townships of Lebanon Co, PA where he was the postmaster at Jonestown.  Any information will be much appreciated.  I will gladly exchange info on descendants.

    2. George W. Durman
    3. Hello Margaret, Sorry, but I didn't have Godfrey EICHELBERGER or Rosanna MAUER in my database. I went online and looked for them to see if I could plug them into the EICHELBERGER families that I do have. Well, I found your "Godfrey", except he is "Gottfried". (GRIN) You can find his data here: <http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=spscm0&id=I79> From there you can navigate back to his ancestors or forward to his descendants, even download a Descendancy REGISTER, which will give you all the information on him, his descendants, their spouses, children, etc., for 6 generations. This line of EICHELBERGER seems to go back to Johann Caspar and Clos EYCHELBORNER, in the mid to late 1600's in Langenselbold, Hesse, Germany. Of course, there is no sources given for this surname and all other databases for EICHELBERGER don't use that name. Seems mighty suspect to me. I hope this has helped. I don't know what specific information you needed, but what you find on that website should help you a lot. I can't Godfrey's lines into my EICHELBERGER people; it looks like this family came from a different place in Germany, and settled in a different place in PA than mine. But, it's more than possible that they were related in Germany.

Durman Sent: Saturday, August 04, 2007 12:29 AM To: [email protected] Subject: [EICHELBERGER] CURLETT & EICHELBERGER Just so everyone knows how I'm connected to this family, my g-g-g-g-grandmother was Maria Eva Barbara EICHELBERGER, who married John PHILLIPI in Chester Co., PA, in 1757. I descend down from Maria Eva Barbara through the PHILLIPI, COPENHAVER, and DUTTON families. That said, a person contacted me a few days ago looking for descendants of one "Mr. Curlett". Since one of my databases has an Elizabeth M. EICHELBERGER married to a John CURLETT in Baltimore, MD, he thought someone that is researching EICHELBERGER families might be able to help. He has a daguerreotype photograph taken in 1845 in Baltimore, MD. He is trying to positively ID the man in the photo so he can possibly return it to descendants who might like to have it. He says he has nothing to go on except a name on the back of the paper seal. It reads only " Mr. Curlett", written in pencil. There is a printed address also on the back of the studio where it was taken. He says he assumes the only real way to ID the man pictured is to compare to known photos that might exist for CURLETT ancestors. His phone number is 410-868-1700 if anyone would like more info. So, if anyone can help identify this "Mr. Curlett", it would be greatly appreciated. Maybe with identification, he can get this photo to descendants of "Mr. Curlett". Let me know if you can help and I'll put you in touch with the owner of the photo. Also, he sent a photo of the daguerreotype which I can forward to anyone who is interested so he/she might compare with other photos of CURLETT people.

    1. [EICHEL] From today's RootsWeb Review--instructions on board searches...
    2. Brian and TerriRene Howard
    3. (Please remember that many of the RootsWeb Message Boards are gatewayed to mailing lists. This means that when something is posted to a board, it is also posted to the mailing list. When replying to a gatewayed message it is best to reply on the board where the original message was written, just in case the author is not currently on the mailing list where you found the message. TRD-H) GETTING THE MOST OUT OF MESSAGE BOARDS. http://boards.rootsweb.com/ You can search all message boards, search a category, or search only one board by selecting the appropriate button depending upon your location within the board hierarchy. To perform a simple search type in a surname (last name), a keyword, or a phrase, and click GO! In all searches, keywords or phrases will be searched for the closest to the least exact match in that order. For a more specific search click on the ADVANCED SEARCH link. A search of all boards is the default. Complete any or all of the items on the ADVANCED SEARCH form: --FIND MESSAGES CONTAINING: (list a keyword or phrase) --WITH SUBJECT CONTAINING: (searches only message subjects) --BY AUTHOR: (the posters' names will be searched) --POSTED IN THE LAST ____: (select a time period from drop-down menu) --WITH SURNAME: (searches only the Surname Box entries) also offers a check box to use a Soundex search. (For information about Soundex, a special index, see: http://rwguide.rootsweb.com/lesson9.htm). --WITH MESSAGE TYPE: (Select from the drop-down menu: All, Query, Bible, Biography, Birth, Cemetery, Census, Death, Deed, Immigration, Lookup, Marriage, Military, Obituary, Pension, or Will). Searches support trailing wildcards represented by an asterisk (*) following a minimum of the first three letters of the keyword or surname. A trailing wildcard means you cannot begin a search request surname/keyword with an asterisk -- you must start with at least three letters prior to the asterisk. For example: a search for Joh* will find John, Johns, or Johnson. Search operators you may use are the plus (+) sign which may be placed in front of any word to indicate that this word MUST appear in a message for it to be considered a match, and the minus sign (-) which may be placed in front of any term you wish to exclude from a search. A search for '+jones john -paul' will return only those hits that contain the word 'jones' -- provided the word 'paul' does not also appear in the message. The word "john" may or may not appear in the message. Messages that include both 'john' and 'jones' would rank higher in degree of match (relevancy) than those that only include 'jones'. If you search and get no matches, enter less information or search only by a surname or a keyword. Regardless of the case (upper or lower) found in the actual posts on the message boards, typing all lowercase letters in the search box will make your search case insensitive, thereby yielding the maximum number of matches. Too many matches? Enter additional data on the ADVANCED SEARCH page to narrow down your results. If the surname for which you are looking is also a common word (such as HILL) use the ADVANCED SEARCH link and search on the surname by typing it into the SURNAME BOX. This enables you to search only message board posts in which this "word" is used as a surname. Searching only on the surname field eliminates authors' names from coming up in your search results. You also can narrow search results by selecting a specific data type or messages with attachments. By searching only for posts with attachments, for example, you can easily locate those messages that include pictures, scanned images, and GEDCOMs. Previously published in RootsWeb Review: Vol. 5, No. 26, 26 June 2002. ==== BOARDS-ADMINS Mailing List ================================= To join Ancestry.com and access our 1.2 billion online genealogy records, go to: http://www.ancestry.com/rd/redir.asp?targetid=571&sourceid=1237 Forwarded by Terri Rene DaVar-Howard & Brian Howard We are currently registered to administer the following boards: Boards > Localities > North America > United States > States > Michigan > Counties > Ottawa <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=localities.northam.usa.states.michigan.counties.ottawa> Boards > Surnames > Boomhour <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.boomhour> Boards > Surnames > Cochran <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.cochran> Boards > Surnames > Darland <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.darland> Boards > Surnames > Davar <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.davar> Boards > Surnames > Dever <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.dever> Boards > Surnames > Grote <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.grote> Boards > Surnames > Haight <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.haight> Boards > Surnames > Hendrickson <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.hendrickson> Boards > Surnames > Kirkham <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.kirkham> Boards > Surnames > Otting <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.otting> Boards > Surnames > Van arsdale <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.van-20-arsdale> Boards > Surnames > Vanarsdale <http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=admin.board&r=rw&p=surnames.vanarsdale>

    1. [EICHEL] DNA STUDY -- is THIS surname conducting one?
    2. Brian and TerriRene Howard
    3. Hello All, I apologize to anyone who gets more than one copy of this e-mail. I am considering the pros and cons of participating in this (quoted below) DNA study and am wondering if any other surnames related to my family tree are involved in a similar study? After all, if we "do it" for one family line and can use the same data/fees to research another family line then my husband's thrifty nature may be appeased <grin>. Following the two messages posted to the HOYT list you will find some questions I have sent to the coordinators. Please do let me know if any of the surnames receiving this message are also participating in a DNA study. THANK YOU. Terri Rene -------- Original Message -------- Announcing a HOYT GENEALOGY DNA PROJECT, Coordinator Dan Wharton, [email protected] or telephone 914-738-3722 home. This project will be examining some standard marker genes from the male Y chromosome inherited biologically from father to son, conveniently paralleling the tradition of passing surnames from father to son. This project is designed to answer two basic questions: (1) How closely related, if at all, are the various Hoyt lineages and Hoyt surname variations (Hoit, Hoyt, Haight, Hight etc.)? Do the descendants of John Hoyt and Simon Hoyt have matching Y genes, indicating a recent, common ancestor? (2) What is the ancient history of the Hoyt lineages in Europe and in the British Isles in particular? It is now possible to get fairly good readings from Y chromosome DNA as to male lineage origin from one of three main populations: Ancient resident Briton/Celtic, Anglo Saxon invader, or Norwegian Viking. We are hoping to get representation from many different Hoyt lines in the USA and Europe. The database will be an invaluable resource for Hoyt family researchers finding themselves at a "dead end" and looking for that missing link. Sample collection is accomplished privately at home with simple "cheek scrapers" and samples are sent to the lab through the mail. Results will be made available to all interested parties and identified only by pre-1900 ancestors and their geographical locations. Participant identities will be confidential (e-mail addresses shared only by mutual consent). Cost per participant is estimated to be less than $200, assuming that at least six Hoyts participate in the study. Note that all Hoyt males within your own, extended family would be expected to share the same Y genes so it is most economical to process just one sample from either yourself or one of your male Hoyt relatives and share costs among all interested family members. For more information and answers to any questions you have, please contact Dan Wharton and Marilyn Hoyt at [email protected] or call 914-738-3722 USA. We are looking forward to hearing from you. >Here is an update on the Hoyt DNA study. We now have participation from >Hoyts and Hites and are continuing to get inquiries.

    3. Think this just happened the last couple days. I found it Saturday, I believe. Was going to tell you to go directly to the search page http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/search/search.asp but looks like it's just been de-hacked! The home page is back.

    3. We have noticed that the link we have to "the Federal land title records for the Eastern Public Land States, issued between 1820 and 1908" has a horrible picture and the statement "Owned by PoisonBox" instead of the land records. ....Having been off-line for a couple of months, I am wondering if this has been noticed and perhaps there is a new/different URL for the land record page..... one I haven't heard of as I've been *gone* .... ???
