Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started my research into my family history when I was 15 in Jr. High School. It was a Social Studies project, we were to trace our family history back until we had an ancestor come to America from the "old country". My favorite part of it all is getting to meet my cousins, no matter how distant they are. It's always amazing to me to see family resemblances, what we share, and what makes us unique. Mostly it's the connection that I feel with my very extended family. I love to hear the stories they tell about family members. Since I have become the unofficial family historian, I get a lot of "gifts" that genealogists love old family photos and papers, Bibles, even funeral cards. The cousins all call me with the news first engagements or marriages, new births, and deaths in the family. If someone wants to get in touch with someone else, they call me. I find new information nearly every day for me, it's like a never-ending mystery novel; there is always another ancestor to find.
My friend Hope Callan and I were in high school together and met up again by accident a few years ago through our sons' Cub Scouts Pack. We learned that we were both heavily interested in genealogy and even went on a few field trips to do research together. We decided that we needed a group here in Lower Bucks County and that was the start of the Lower Bucks Genealogy Club in 2008. And most amazingly to me, is how well it has taken off, and how well it has been received. We have grown from a handful of people to almost 100 members now. We normally have 25-30 people attend our monthly meetings and everyone is on the email list. Our members range from very experienced to people just beginning their search. A few members have even become like family to me.

Wagnetz family
Hello: I had put a message on one of the genealogy pages for Edward Wagnetz. My maternal grandmother was Emilie Wagnetz Favis, who was a sister of John & Edward Wagnetz. I do some very basic genealogy hunting on both of my parents' ancestors. I live in Arlington TX; feel free to email me at hggraham@yahoo.com

Wall family
Hi Barb
just checking to see if you ever heard of Rev.Lawrence Wall a well known Philadelphia Priest from 1870s till he died in 1926.He was Pastor of St.Dominic's Church in Philadelphia most of his career as a Priest.He was also friends with Mother Catherine Drexel.He was born in the Pottsville,Pa. area around 1842.His father was a Robert Wall born in 1800 in Ireland--just wondering if there was any connection to Christopher maybe a cousin thru Rev.Lawrence's father Robert as i have a listing of all Rev.Lawrence's sibling and there is no Christopher listed.

Bill Carpenter--Wall descendant
