I am looking for birth information for Alva WEST. He died in Winter Quarters, Douglas, Nebraska in November 1846, age 51. In 1830 he is in Ossian, Allegany, New York in the US Federal Census. In 1880 daughter Adelia states her father was born in Pennsylvania, his daughter Eliza states her father was born in Connecticut, and his son Ira states his father was born in Massachusetts. The only contemporary record I have is a birth record for an Alvah West born 21 Jun 1795 in Lee, Berkshire, Massachusetts, but it lists the child as being female--and unfortunately it's an index so there's no way to know whether that is simply a typo. I am looking for records relating to his birth. If this isn't enough information to go off of, what would be the next place to look?
I am looking for marriage information about Martha COLLER nee PARKER including a marriage date and place. Martha was born in 1795 in Pennsylvania, USA. She married Lewis COLLER and had 7 children. Her first child, Chester, was born in 1821 in New York. She died 30 Jan 1882 at the age of 87. She is buried with her husband in the Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester, New York, USA. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking for the parents of Hannah. Born 16 Jan 1841 in Pennsylvania. Died 15 Nov 1925, buried in Seattle, Washington. Married George S 26 Feb WELLS 1860 in Beach Pond, Belin Twp, Wayne Pennsylvania.
Sarah J Beiler born Plank ( - 1842-1923) was married to John W Beiler (1825-1897). They were Amish and farmed in Leacock, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They had 6 children - Joseph, Gideon, Elizabeth, Anna, Rebecca and Reuben.
I am trying to find the ancestors of Sarah's parents, Adam Plank and Elizabeth Kauffman - I guess they might have been born about 20 years before Sarah and there is no evidence so far of them being part of the many Kauffman and Plank/Blank families in that area.
Looking for a marriage record for James McINTYRE and Mary Elizabeth DOLE (possibly NOEL). The marriage would have taken place after 1865 as he served in the Civil War as a Private in the 162nd PA Regiment, 17th Cavalry, Co. E until the war ended. That Company was out of Lebanon County.
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 email@example.com 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.
