|Neff Family Historian and Co-Editor of "NEFF NEWS" published by the Neff Family Historical Society, Inc. from 1991 to 1997. Author: NEFF-NÄF FAMILY printed by Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ 1991. [B] Family Line of Neffs from Lancaster Co., PA, Manor Twp. and their descendants. Trustee of the NEFF CEMETERY in Huntingdon Co., PA, Petersburg and NEFF-HERSHEY Cemetery in Lancaster Co., PA, Manor Twp.|
Researching Neff and related families since 1980. Focus has been on pre-1800 primary family records found in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Ohio. European research includes Mennonite communities in the Rhine region of Germany and Swiss records found at the Zürich Archives.
CURRENT PROJECTS: 2012-2013
In 2003 the Neff Family Historical Society funded a grant to James Madison University to resurvey the Neff-Kagey Cemetery outside of New Market, Shenandoah Co., VA. This involved clearing the entire site, mapping each memorial using CAD and with GPS locations. Each grave marker, including fieldstones, were transcribed and photographed. This information has been compared against indexes made in the 1890's and 1929. It became quite clear that between these dates, some of the original stones had been moved to the Cedar Grove cemetery nearby. Depressions in the ground indicated some internments were relocated and some were not. We hope to complete the update of this cemetery by the summer of 2013 with links to descendants in Virginia, Ohio and Indiana.
Our research team is also working on detailed updates to NEFF, NAFF and NAVE memorials of men who served in the War Between the States both on the North and Southern sides.
Group Administrator for the NEFF NÄF NAEF NAFF NAVE Y-DNA project with "Family Tree DNA" of Houston, Texas. In 2005, The Neff Family Historical Society, Inc. began a Surname research project based upon and utilizing the latest Y-chromosome DNA testing technology. The Neff surname lines under study are those who immigrated from Switzerland and Germany to North America from the early 1600's to the mid-1800's. The original surname spelling is generally found as NÄF, however common variation in America are found as Naef, Naff, Neff, and Nave. There are currently over 60 participtants.

Bill, Thank you for the transfer of 176 memorials in the Neff Cemetery. They will now be managed by the Cemetery Trustees. During 2013 we will be updating the information on each memorial from our records and historical sources.
|Neff Cemetery Trustees||Neff Cemetery Huntingdon Co., PA|
Bill, The cemetery Trustees have now established a Find-a-Grave account to manage and expand these records. Thank you for your offer to transfer all records you currently manage in this cemetery to this new Trustees account. Also thank you for all the work you have done with these records.
|Neff Family Historical Society||Neff-Kagey Cemetery Records|
Bill, Thank you for the transfer of the 41 Neff Kagey Cemetery records. This is a big boost to the project.
i only have two bits of info about her: she is the daughter of henry brumbach b.1738 in nassau siegen; d. 1799 in luray. her mother was anna kauffman, b. 1740 in massanutten; d. 1778 in luray; d/o martin kauffman sr. and barbara stauffer.
i'm pretty sure that the stricklers were members of the mill creek primitive baptist church opposite ft. egypt on the east side of the river. don't know if that helps. the genealogy of strickler/kauffman/brumbach in page co. is a nightmare! :-)
