Hi Phil, It's Beverly from the powwow circuit. Hope everything's fine. I tried getting into your website a few times, but I have had no success. I called a couple of days ago, but you were at work. I wanted to invite you to a surprise birthday party for Bill " oaring Hawk". It will be held at our home located at 305 Hamilton Avenue, Trenton NJ. The time will be 12:00 noon. Afterwards, you can finally see some of the Lenape sites around here. Please RSVP as soon as possible, so that I can start to do a count for food. It would be great to see you again and that Bill would be greatly surprised to see you! Also, I can be contacted at my work number (609) 683-7900 (M-F 9-5 pm). Since I last spoke to you, I adopted to girls! Hope to hear from you soon! Take care, Bev

Hi, Lynn. Great job on the web page! My paternal grandmother, Emma Nicolodi, grew up in New Phildelphia in the early 1900s. I'm researching the NICOLODI and GOTTSTEIN families, and may also have a few stray EAGAN relations who came down to Schuylkill Coun y from the Wilkes-Barre area. Using the Internet, I've come across two second cousins who have roots in Schuylkill County as well, so I'll have to let them know of your site. Again, great site--I'll be sure to visit often. regards, Julia

Trying to organize the descendants of a Simeon Wythes who came to Minersville about 1838. Family names include Harris, Levan, Burton, Clappier, Goss and others. Would like to find someone who has researched any of these lines. Also would like to find if any burial records exist for "the Union Cemetey" which is located on fifth Street off Sunbury in Minersville. Very overgrown with brambles and impossible to survey, but am sure that many of this family are there. Many thanks for any help

Thanks Lynn for all your help! We are lucky to have a chart of our family dating back to the 1700's when our ancestor supposedly came over on a ship sailing from Rotterdam. Our family name may have started out as Jager. Thanks to Lynn, we have started ou search to validate the information on the chart. Our family is mostly from the Schuylkill county area. My Greatgrandfather was William Yeager,(born 8-23-1845/died 12-6-1922) married to Elizabeth, he had 3 brothers, George, Tom, and Henry. They had 9 chil ren--Alfred, William, Roy, Joe, Mary, Maggie, Dianna, Fred and Katie. If anyone has any information regarding my family you can e-mail me. Thanks again to Lynn for all her assistance and tips.
