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.
