    1. ([PAMCKEAN])An Invitation to Join a Great Group!
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! By now I’m sure everyone has heard the sad news Rootsweb Mailing Lists will be disabled March 2, 2020. All lists will be archived for future researchers. Today I wanted to extend an Invitation to join our nearly 800 members strong Facebook group Pennsylvania Dutch Life. Debra Orner and I decided to welcome all of the list users to come over and join us! We discuss a little bit of everything. PA Dutch culture and heritage, area history, announcements of local events, and genealogical topics. Below is the link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/107084541429/?epa=SEARCH_BOX All we ask is your Facebook profile have a face picture. Hope to see you soon! Rick B PADL Group Owner and Admin

    1. ([PAMCKEAN])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    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!

    1. [PAMCKEAN] ASP Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Lottie ASP which was taken at the J. S. Lundgren Studio in Kane, PA sometime in the 1890's or early 1900's. Lottie appears to be in her 30's at the time. In addition to her name, someone has written "partner of Lottie DIZER or DIGER or SIZER or SIGER (cannot tell for sure) in Dressmaking Business" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I believe that this is a photograph of Hanna or Hannah Charlotta ASP who married Alfred JOHNSON (b. 6 Jul 1873 in Sweden) in Kane, PA on 14 Jun 1905. She is noted as having been born in Sweden on 11 Feb 1869. Her husband was living in Philadelphia, PA at the time of their marriage and listed his occupation as Electrician. She died in 1947 and is buried in the Mount Tabor Cemetery in Kane, PA. I am hoping to locate someone from Lottie's family so that this beautiful old photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [PAMCKEAN] Weiner/Wiener in McKean County (Kane)
    2. Larry Weisberg via
    3. Greetings; My 2xGreat-Grandfather and his family lived in Kane (confirmed) from 1897-1907 (they appear in the 1900 Census). Possibly as early as 1880 (but after the Census as they were in Oil City for that). His name was Abraham. His wife was Annie (or Jennie or Jeanette). They had five daughters, Elizabeth (Libbie), Dolly, Rebecca (Reeva), Carrie, Gertrude. Any information would be greatly appreciated about when they lived there. Any other births that didn't make it. Any birth records (I found Gertrude's) and any death records (possibly Annie - the mother). When they show up in Philadelphia in 1908 City Directories (and the 1910 Census), Abraham is a Widow. Best Regards... Larry Weisberg 818-415-0632 ldweisberg@gmail.com
