Bio and Links
I have been working on my family tree for about 30 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; I hope to get more updated copies available soon. Always open to new or corrected info. Thanks.

Irwin Rader & Pearl Anderson/Trexler/Moyer
Irwin's obituary has been added, as well as your notes to Pearl's memorial. I updated her memorial accordingly and went ahead and linked her to Harry and Raymond. Let me know if there's anything else!

RE: Jacob Schantz
Google "Chronicling America" for imaged newspapers. Only a tiny fraction of the nation's newspapers were imaged. You can search imaged newspapers with a two-word (not more) search, but searching isn't always successful because some pages are blurred, faint, torn, etc. You can narrow a search to: State; a specific publication; a date-range, etc.

RE: Trexler Private Cemetery
Thank you!

I live in Kansas but am planning to take my mother back to find all the family burial sites next month. I am sure we can find this one with your directions.

Trexler Private Cemetery
Can you give me the address of this cemetery or directions to get there. I am bringing my mother to the area in late September and Peter Trexler would be her 5th great grandfather.
