Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in tracing my family history, even as a young child. Now that my relatives are getting older I want to try to gather and preserve as much information as I can.

Some of the family surnames that I research are all the varients of Hoffert, Raifsnider, Reppert, Hartman, Furillo, Bowers, Wagner, Meyer, Merkey to name a few. I have helped many of my extended family and friends with their trees as well.

I am willing to manage any and all memorials for my family surnames (especially any varients of Raifsnider/Ralphsnider as I am working on all these families members in attempt to located my direct lineage). Feel free to transfer and try to post a message giving me a heads up.

I am in the Berks County Area. The Berks County Historical Society as a nice online database you can use to search most church and cemetery records. This site has helped me find maiden names, spouses, parents and burial sites I would not have known other wise. Another great source of information in Berks County online is this site from the Berks County Register of Wills.

Margaret E. Raifsnider/photo
When I went to get Margaret's photo, I also found a marker for S. Edward Reifsnyder # 139179314 8/21/1911 - 9/18/1981 and Sarah R Reissnyder 7/30/1915 -5/24/1995 #139179395 to the right of Margaret's stone. I hope this helps you.

I should have added that my line comes from her first marriage, to a Snyder.

Thank you for the photo of Mary's headstone, as well as one of the cemetery.
The other info you added will certainly help me in my research. My family lived in PA for a few generations before heading west.

RE: William Reifsnider # 44504400
I wish I could help you with #71555356 (John Raifsnyder) and could if he were a Civil War veteran, but it does not appear that he was. I have a John C. Reifsnider on file, but he is a different man.

Good luck.
