My name is Stephan Hetrick and I have been researching Hetrick families of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is a work in progress and will be updated from time to time with new information. It should be noted that there were several origins of this name in Philadelphia as well as several spelling variations.
About twenty years ago, I began researching my family name in the Philadelphia area. My paternal lineage, in America, begins there. As a starting point, I used the Philadelphia 1900 Census population of Hetrick names and their variant spellings. I first validated what was known to my family, still living in Philadelphia. With that as a foundation, I began to researching family records prior to 1900.
From time to time, I help others with their research. As a result, not all the names I submit are Hetrick surnames.
