Do you have a specific family member you are interested in finding out more about?
I’m an artist working in the Pittsburgh area that is interested in meeting with you to talk more about the "missing person" in your family tree - the person in your family you've been able to find little information on.
In the end, we will work together to create a one-of-a-kind tintype portrait of this “missing” family member. Creating a tintype involves exposing a piece of metal to light instead of film, this result in an image that can never be replicated. The tintype will be yours to keep, to display amongst the rest of your family photographs and memorabilia.
See below for an example of a tintype, and please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in taking part!
I am looking for the parents/family members of Robert Smith b. March 10, 1809 in Pennsylvania, d. 4 January 1880 in Godfrey, Madison, Illinois. I have researched him for 18 years, and have found most of the records available about him once he moved to Illinois in about 1844. Before that is a mystery. I don’t know what part of Pennsylvania he was born in, but his oldest child was born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. His wife’s name was Nancy ? b. 11 March 1811 in Ireland. Any information on who his parents might be would be very helpful. Thanks in advance!
A new YDNA project attempting to tie males with any variant of the surname Nipp/Knipp to their immigrant ancestors. This project is for males with any variation of the Nipp/Knipp surname, or males who suspect they are from that surname line. Thus, the individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111 test and who has one of the surnames listed for the project, or genetically matches one of the surnames in the project.
Although females do not carry their father's Y-DNA, those who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test.

I am looking for any information about my great great grandfather's family. I don't have a lot of information. I have his name: Joseph Burchard Stites and that he was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we think Cape May. His father (we don't have any information) was killed (we don't know what year) in a maritime accident and was killed "presumely as sea". We know that Joseph was apprenticed (we don't know what year or for what) by his older brother by the name of John to a man based out of Philadelphia named Ayers (we don't have a first name, but interestingly enough, there were three other male Stites' who would be in the same generation as Joseph's father married Ayers girls and I was wondering if there was a connection there as well, and so maybe that's why Joseph was sent to go with Ayers) and Joseph was told that he would not be taken out of Philadelphia, but was anyway and as a result, he lost track of his family.
If anyone has any kind of information about Joseph, John, or this Ayers person, that would be most appreachiated.
My great great grandfather was an apprentice to a man named Ayers (sorry first name) between 1833 to 1840. My great great grandfather's name was Joseph Burchard Stites. He was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we assume Cape May. Joseph's older brother, John was the one who apprenticed him out. We don't know where from. I'm not sure if Joseph and his family moved from New Jersey to Philadelphia or he was taken from New Jersey to Philadelphia for the apprenticeship. I also know that Joseph was not supposed to be taken out of Philadelphia, but was and Joseph ended up in IL, I have two places: one was Christian County, IL and the other was Pike, IL. Does anyone have any information about anything like this in their past?
Also, while trying to find information about Joseph, I did come across some information that I found interesting: two, possibly three Stites males who were in the same generation of Joseph's father (sadly, we know nothing of him except that he died at sea in South America), early 1800's, who married two or thee different Ayers girls (I assume that they were sisters) so I'm wondering if there was a connection between the Ayers girls in New Jersey and the Ayers in PA and that's why Joseph was apprenticed to them.
