Sites like Ancestry are great, but online archives can be a goldmine for finding records pertaining to your family here and abroad.
I examined records from Lancaster County for Hans Georg and Anna Maria and records in Blankenloch for Georg and his three marriages. Yet, I don’t have proof regarding the identity of the immigrant. Was he the father or the son?
Yesterday I shared what I’ve learned about George and Anna Maria (Hooß) Huber in baptismal records in Lancaster County and emigration records. Today I’ll cover what I learned about the pair from German records.

Randy Seaver at Geneamusings posts a genealogy fun challenge every Saturday. Today is ahnentafel roulette. My chosen ancestor is my 2x great grandfather Karl “Charles” Phillipp Greulich of East Greenville, Pennsylvania.
