Bio and Links
Bio Photo My love of history began in grade school and has intensified over the years. I am an active member and volunteer at the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society. Several of my articles have been published in their "Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage" research magazine. I have also written several books telling the stories of some of my ancestors. Two of my books, "Annie's Day of Light" and "A Home for Sarah" are available from Masthof Press in Morgantown, Pa.

Five other books were published by Christian Light Publications. The most recent was "Aaron's Civil War," published in December 2011, which is available from Christian Light Publications, Harrisonburg, Va.

My most recent book is the history of Mid-Atlantic Mennonite Fellowship which was published in 2014 and is available from Little Mountain Printing, 234 E Rosebud Rd, Myerstown, PA 17067.

The main surnames I am researching are Burkholder, Stauffer, Good, and Powell (or Powl), plus many others on a lesser scale. My research is centered mainly in the Pennsylvania counties of Lancaster, Lebanon, and Berks. But I also have a reputation for not being able to travel anywhere without making at least one stop at a cemetery.

RE: Worst Cemetery
Your Welcome, not getting many Find A Grave photo messages at all, maybe the weather. Your memorial is ok, just we are suppose to alert dupies. I know they do ME, LOL!
to keep site from repeating. I am doing the Herschburger Cem in Lanc Co. now. I did the Landis Cemetery in Schaeffertown,Pa. and this guy put it on and called it a new name, now he says don't know how to take it off, Find A Grave does nothing. I suppose my list will be copied to his mistake. Now thats a dupie! LOL!

I communicate with Bruce Speck constantly. He even helped me find my 2nd great grandparents! I am also asking him about the same issue.

RE: Sattazahn
Romaine:
I see the confusion about Frank's marriage license now. The license was issued by the county of Lebanon, but they actually got married in Womelsdorf and the transcriber just put the two together on the Familysearch.org record.

Sattazahn Family
Romaine:
Since I see you have done a lot of research in Lebanon, Lancaster, and Berks counties where most of my paternal relatives lived including distant ones such as the Sattazahn family, would you happen to have any research on John H Sattazahn born about 1864 to Daniel and Mary (Bechtold) Sattazahn (Find A Grave #35713853)? I believe I located him with an Emma in the 1900 census for Jackson, Lebanon, PA. I am trying to determine if this Emma could be Emma S (Albert) Sattazahn Find A Grave #33958033. I can not locate a death certificate nor Find A Grave memorial for him. He seemed to just disappear between 1900 and the 1910 census where Emma indicated she was married but no husband John Listed. Emma was living with her mother Maria in North Jackson, Lebanon, PA in the 1910 census. The 1900 census for John and an Emma indicated they were married in 1883, a couple years before marriage licenses may have started to be regularly collected. Any info you may have would be appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Sattazahn
Romaine:
Thanks for the edit and correction. I knew Womelsdorf was in Berks county, but I did not think that the transcribed marriage record I found would have that error, which it did and so I just typed it in my SAC to you. Errors are too common in the downloaded records.
