Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree for over 40 years. There are over 12,000 names in it, with the concentration on the names Bittenbender, Brensinger, Gery (or Geary), Rader (or Roeder) and Reichl. My point of reference centers around Berks and Lehigh counties in Pa., although it branches out, mostly in eastern Pa. I have one missing link...Jacob Bittenbender (born in 1815 and died in 1863) who was married to Sarah Wagner. If you ever find his tombstone or record of death PLEASE PLEASE let me know. I also printed a Bittenbender-Gery volume of my notes and it is available at the Schwenkfelder Library in E. Greenville, the Public Libraries in Allentown, Emmaus and Macungie, and the Kutztown University Heritage Center. I'm lways open to new or corrected info. Thanks.

I asked for a grave photo, but there was no space to post it. That's why I sponsored

RE: Agnes (Tomasovic) Yandle
As for the Matura-Tomasovic relationship, using DNA from Agnes Yandle which I than sent to I was able to locate a daughter of John Matura who recently passed away. He and his then girlfriend gave a baby up for adoption 50 years ago. A match was found and they all reunited last year for the first time. So thrilled he had the chance to meet his daughter before he passed away.

Thank you for the transfer of my Aunt and Uncle. It means so much to me, more than I can express.

David R Rohrbach
Do you have the complete article on the Rohrbach clan gathering that you placed on David's memorial?
Can we get a scan for our "School Files" at the Roundhouse Museum?
I found a notice today in the 29DEC1949 issue of "The NEWS" of Egg Harbor City that announced the plans for his 75th birthday party on January 5th, and his obituary in his birth date issue in the newspaper holdings of the museum.

Rothermel-Federolf-Bittenbender Cemetery
We talk back in 2015 about this cemetery, and your message was very interesting. I see you have marked many of the stones, would you care to get back to me about who these may be. B

Catharine Reichl Worst
Good Afternoon, Kitty,
I had contacted you before and you were most kind to answer. I recently began on my genealogy again. I was busy with other things for a long time. Right now I am interested in Catharine Reichl who was married to John Worst. Catharine was born in 1831. I think her father might be Jonas. She is buried at Huff's Church Cemetery along with her husband and several children. I was wondering if you have any information about Catharine since you have researched the Reichl's. This is my brick wall along with her husband, John Worst. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Kathy Werst
