    1. ([PABERKS])GLASSER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Sam GLASSER which was taken at the W. A. Dietrich Studio in Kutztown, PA. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Sam likely in his 40's at the time the picture was taken. I'm hoping to locate someone from this GLASSER Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Good evening, I came across this email address while researching my family tree, and it said you might have information regarding a potential ancestor, Friedrich Schweimler. He was a Hessian soldier who settled in Reading, PA after the Revolutionary War. If you have any information or direction regarding this research, please let me know. Thank you, Erik Sweimler

Married Maria Elizabeth Dornbachin 1770. The common belief is he was born in 1747 in Germany and died March 26 1822 in Brunswick Twp. Schuylkill Co PA. I can't find a burial record of this. Does anyone have proof of this? There is a Thomas Gottschall in the will books but it is the wrong Thomas. HELP!! Syd Holt

    3. Judy, I have found that age 21 could be before a marriage. Normal confirmations were in early teen years. But some were done if one of the parties was not a church member and wanted to learn about and join the church before marriage..

Both on the will of Henry Acker of Rockland Township where Abraham Long and John Zerbey were the executors.

Do you by any chance have scans of the 2 1/2 pages mentioned on Rudy Meyer from "History and Genealogy of Early Pioneer Families of Lebanon County, PA" by Rev. J. G. Francis and edited by Betty M. Light Behr, that you could send me? Thank you! Mike The following is from "History and Genealogy of Early Pioneer Families of Lebanon County, PA" by Rev. J. G. Francis and edited by Betty M. Light Behr, p. 359: "II Anna Light, p. 13, m. Rudolph Meyer, b. 1724, d. in 1783. At the time of Anna's father's death they were living in Tulpehocken Twp., Berks Co., but that same year (1759) he bought a farm of 94 A. ne. of Annville, which is now (1930) occupied by Mary B. Meyer, wid. of David, thus being in the family 171 yrs." The account goes on to identify 13 children of Anna and Rudolph and then provides more information on four of them and their descendants. It also says, "Rudolph is sd. to have been a bro. of Isaac Meyer, the founder of Myerstown, Leb. Co. They are sd. to have been sons of Chr., son of Michael, the Immigrant." It goes on to say more about "Rudy The Mennonite" on the next 2 1/2 pages, followed by the accounts of the four sons. Anna Light was the third child of I John Light, also called The Immigrant, whose descendants are the primary subject of this book. She was born May 4, 1728. _______________________________________________ ==== PABERKS Mailing List ==== [email protected] To contact the List Administrator: Rick Berkheiser, [email protected] _______________________________________________ Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebpref Unsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/[email protected] Privacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9 Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blog RootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community ____________________________________________________________ 1 Cup (Before Bed) Burns Belly Fat Like Crazy! worldhealthlabs.com http://thirdpartyoffers.netzero.net/TGL3231/5ce9ecc0acd6cbf142dst02vuc
