Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began a quest to find my roots.in 1988. When I began my quest, there were no documents that I could use to trace my ancestors. My parents were deceased as were most of my fathers siblings; the others were elderly and could not remember very much. My mother was adopted. The document that started me on my journey was my grandfather's social security application. It provided me with his place of birth, father's name and mother's maiden name.
In 2006 I found my great-great grandfather's grave. He is buried in the Birdsboro Cemetery aka St. Michael's Episcopal Cemetery in Birdsboro, Berks, PA. I made a promise to him that he and other Fairs would never be forgotten. Since that time, I have added many Fairs that were not listed in findagrave.
I am related to the Fairs in the following Pennsylvania counties: Armstrong, Allegheny, Beaver, Indiana, Bucks, Butler, Westmoreland, Mercer, Venango, Allegheny, Fayette, Lawrence, Montgomery, Clarion, Chester, Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks. Also the following states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado, California, Arizona, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Oklahoma. We are descendants of Johannes Fahr/ John Fair b.1730 in Germany, d.1808 Berks County PA. I would like to meet relatives from those aforementioned counties and states.

If anyone wishes a memorial transfer, just let me know. I will be more than happy to make the transfer. The exception being anyone with whom I am diectly related. Please use the edit button on the top of the memorial to send me your request. I would be very interested in how you are related to the person in question. That information is optional of course. I will still make the transfer. Reuniting people with their loved ones means more to me than the quest to have the most memorials added.

"These were human beings, they had families, they had loved ones. We owe these graves the same dignity and respect as someone who was buried yesterday.''

"People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors" -- James Barnwell Heyward

Poor is the nation that has no heroes. Shameful is the nation that has heroes...and forgets them. You are not forgotten.
