Bio and Links
Bio Photo

My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania.

I may chose to reset my memorial which I find to be defaced with gaudy clip images. If you feel this information is vital send as a suggestion in digital format to add to the bio section.

Do not create and then request a middle name be added unless it appears in a obituary/death/burial/birth record/tombstone. A middle name is the decision of the parents or the individual.

My Patriots of the Revolution include:
George Herbst 1712, George Dry 1725, Johannes Koch 1725, Daniel Guldin 1735, Johann Christian Scheidt 1736, Michael DeLong 1739, Bernhard Eitel 1745, Michael Krebs 1744, Henrich Knauss 1746, John De Turck 1747, Marmaduke Von Buskirk 1750, John Grant 1754, Sebastian Koch 1757

Generally, transfers of memorials unrelated to my family or friends will only be made for your direct ancestors, therefore excluding, cousin, aunts, uncles, etc.

Memorial# 146476542 William "Y." Handwork
Hello, Neil ~ Thank you for all of the work you do on this site! I received your notification regarding the connection of the Son, William Handwork/William "Y' Handwork to his Parents on Find A Grave. William was my 1st cousin, 4 x removed. According to the PA Death Certificate, File No. 36134, for William Handwork, born to Johannes Nicolas/Nicholas Handwerk/Handwork {Nicholas is my Paternal 3rd Great Grand Uncle) & Elizabeth {nee Yoeder/Yoder} Handwerk/Handwork; William's Birth Date/Place: 3 Oct 1835, PA & Death Date/Place: 26 Mar 1920, Caernarvon Township, Berks County, PA. The Informant was his unmarried daughter, Fannie M. Handwork, aged 52."My" William Handwork was indeed married to Sarah/Sara Jane {nee Schlichter}. I have not come across a middle initial of "Y.", but I would like to know if that does indeed belong to him, as it is likely that it stands for his Mother's Maiden Name of "Yoder"! If William's Death Certificate is incorrect, and you have a more accurate document stating the dates of Birth/Death, I would appreciate your sharing that with me so I may correct my Family Tree. I am currently visiting my sister in South Texas and may not respond to you again until this coming weekend. Thank you so much! Janet Virginia {nee Handwork} Spencer, Dallas, Texas

Thank you for the transfer. James Ross Dalzell has a cousin by the same name and an uncle James Ross Delzell (Delzell spelled with the e). Dalzell is the original family name spelling in Scotland.

Thank You for adding my 2nd Great Grandfather
Dear Mr. Scheidt,

Thank you so very much for adding the memorial to my 2nd great grandfather, Pvt Christian Morris.

Your recent picture is deeply appreciated by his family. I added his picture, obituary and a picture of his grave from 1969 that includes Christian's granddaughters.

Thank you again for the kindness.

Hello, you have so much great information about George 1729-1777. Would you please tell me the source of the information? Thank you! Beth

Thank you!
I have been able to add so much to my family tree because of the photos and information you have added in the Berks county cemeteries. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I live hundreds of miles away, and there is no way I would be able to access these records without your work. Thank you.

Thanks for the info. I found the small listing of this cemetery in 2010 as a small and separate cemetery within the boundary of the main Jesuit Cemetery in Wernersville. Have not checked other names yet, but in searching I learned that the suffix I added seems to block out searches. I have removed it and now both will show up in searches. This is a problem with not allowing an open suffix like PhD, DO, MD, DD, DDiv, LLD, etc.

Will get to others Tuesday after my chemo session.

Mary E. Nagle
Here is the obituary for Mary if you care to add it to her memorial.
Mary E. Nagle, 69, Muhlenberg Park, wife of Charles W. Nagle, died at the home of her son-in-law, Milton rundle. She was a member of St. Mark's Reformed church. There survive her husband and these children: Geneva M., Reading, Mary, wife of Paul McKnight, Reading; Esther, wife of Ralph MacGregor; Kathryn, wife of William Plowman, both of New York City; Marie, wife of Milton Rundle, Muhlenbert Park; Raymond, Atlanta, Georgia; Charles A., Philadelphia and Howard L. Nagle, Reading. There remains one brother, Samuel I. Ziemer and two sisters, Mrgaret and Eleanor Ziemer. - Reading Time (Reading, Pennsylvania), March 25, 1930 p. 2.

Her daughter Esther is also buried in the same cemetery.
Mary is not in my direct family, I do not have any interest in transfering her to me.

Link to spouse
Rebecca is now linked to my memorial, sorry. When I was on her memorial, I saw that she was linked to Michael not realizing that she was not linked to my memorial. Now you can link their children
