Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... I transfer listings to family or other good reasons if you can update them, unless related to me, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most will be granted but I no longer transfer en masse a specific family name.

IMPORTANT: If sending information to add, please give source of information. Without sources, sorry, but I will not add information. With new quick edits, this is still important. Unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source.

Find-A-Grave is an extension of my long time hobby of genealogy. I've researched the Barrick line and published a book on Johann Nicholas Barrick and his descendants, originating in the Cumberland & Perry County areas of Pennsylvania. I've searched many graveyards, seen stones that were in such disrepair, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. When I found this site, I thought it would be a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica for future genealogists.

If you find errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add, I'll review them and add as appropriate. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

I'm a volunteer photographer for the area. If you have a photo that is better than any I have posted, please post it, let me know via the "hint" and I will delete my photo if appropriate.

For anyone interested in family history, or genealogy in general, "The Storytellers" is a must see link. Original Author - Della M. Cummins Wright and Modified by - Della JoAnn McGinnis Johnson and Tom Dunn, tells it all in such a beautiful way...

I didn't scroll down far enough on my new messages. Again, thanks for transferring management, this time for Joseph Adams' wife, Ellen.

Best, Barry

Death Certificate
Hi Linda,
Thank you so much for finding that death certificate. No one in the family ever spoke of a second infant child! The parents are my grandparents, and the child was a late-in-life conception. Now I'd like to find the death certificate for the first child born and died in 1899.
I was born at Westminster just west of Carlisle. The family had been in the Cumberland/Perry County area since c 1790 and before that from Bucks County back to the early 1700s. They were Germanic Swiss.
Thank you for all the volunteer work you've done. FindAGrave is a genealogy in itself and has revolutionized free on-line genealogy.

Plainfield Cemetery, Seitz
Hi I was at Plainfield this past weekend and took photos of the Seitz Headstone, I have linked them and was wondering if they are kin. If they are you are welcome to the photos and maintaining the sites. Good luck
