Bio and Links
Bio Photo I must confess that I am a Genealogy addict for which there is no cure. Much to husband's dismay!

In past months I have not had the time for Find A Grave but I hope to get back in to it on a regular basis. With my crazy work schedule there never seems to be enough hours in my day, but I will try to respond to emails and edits as quickly as I can.

Although I have lived in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for almost 40 years my family history runs through many states. Primarily PA, MT, WA, KY, MI, MO, ID, TN, OH, NC, CT AND NY..I seem to be finding "lost" relatives in new states all of the time.

It is not my intention to amass large numbers of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.

I am not a 'stickler' for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I do not "own" the memorials that I create, unless I am directly related to them. If someone was near and dear to you and you would like the memorial, please ask.

If you see any mistakes in my postings, please let me know and I'll be sure to make the appropriate corrections.

Harriet McGinnis
Hello Carolyn~

McGinnes was the name on her Pennsylvania death certificate. This family apparently spelled their name at least 3 different ways- McGinness, McGinnis, and McGinnes.

I have actually had people come along and create a new memorial with the name spelled the way it is on the death certificate, so it is hard to decide sometimes.

RE: Emma "Lettie" Nolt Weaver
Hi Carolyn,

Do you have a copy of the "Genealogical Record of Rev. Hans Herr and His Lineal Descendants?" I bought a copy when I visited the Hans Herr House Museum in Willow Street, but it is also available online for free through Cornell University, if you do a Google search on Hans Herr descendants.

It lists Reuben S. Nolt and Lavenia Herr's daughters as:

Emma F., born Oct 11, 1878
Letitia, born Dec. 22, 1880

I don't know how to access Pennsylvania Death Certificates. Perhaps the death certificate for Emma F. Nolt Kendig (Oct. 11, 1878 - Apr. 25, 1966) might shed some more light on this. It doesn't seem to make sense that parents would give their daughters the same first name, but stranger things have happened. Perhaps one of the girls was adopted?

Bill D.
