Surnames of interest: Imboden, Schriefer
Comments: On the Schriefer name, I am unsure if SCHRIEFER is the original German spelling. I have been told by an unreliable source that the original German spelling is SCHRUFER with the two little dots over the U (I've forgotten what that symbol is called).

Surnames of interest: Heizer, Heiser, Heyser, Rockefeller from the Hudson River Valley Region
Comments: Printed copies of your sites to be read at home. Just as an interesting aside, sometimes the genes show up generations later. There was an oral tradition from my father and his Uncle that there was a Hizer/Rockefeller connection. I believe my gt. grandfather, Lyman Henry Heizer (1831- 1890's?), was a grandson of a John Heizer and Margaret Rockefeller, d/o Simon Rockefeller. My father, Walter A. Hizer (1906-1992), looked like an identical twin of Nelson A. Rockefeller (1908-1979).

Comments: I enjoyed your website. I have been researching the "Minnich" family for 3 years. At Christmas I became more diligent due to the purchase of a decent computer. I have come in contact with distant relatives, that I have never known. The reason for my search was due to my greatgreat grandfathers German Bible that was given to me and the hand inscriptions in it. He along with three of his teenage sons died within one month of influenza. Diane Minnich Mowery

Surnames of interest: Kerchner, Hall, Churchill,
Comments: I visited to research or verify a link to my greatgreat grandparents, Jonathan Hall and Susanah Kerchner Hall. The family had spelled it Kirschner but have found that my great grandfather spelled many things as they sounded to him. I have pictures I have verified as the Hall family and believe one photo is of Susanah Kerchner Hall and I think her sister Jerildene Kerchner Churchill. The sisters settled and died in Fillmore County, Ne and I am trying to document their parents. Susanahs' death certificate lists only George Kerchner born in PA. Other e-mail contacts have led to the belief that this is indeed George Kerchner who died in Keokuk, Iowa. Would you have these names in any of your files and family lines? I really enjoyed the German Naming Customs as both my husband's family and mine have many German ancestors and this really clarifys some confusion. THANK YOU

Surnames of interest: Actually Mr. Kerchner, I am researching the name Kerce. So I am sure you understand my interest in your web site.
Comments: We know that our family migrated from South Carolina in 1852. However, I have been unable to link back to anyone before they settled in South Carolina. One family member had research done, but the information in the report doesn't match what I have found on the internet, eg. name of the ship and the date of its arrival are not the same in the documents I have found compared to the report. You site was very helpful! the naming patterns, the meanings of names, etc. gave me more insight into how to interpret what I find. Oh yes, I was looking in Pennsylvania because I found a Johan Kertz who was aboard a ship that landed in Philadelphia (I believe -- I don't have all my notes here with me.) Thank you for your site. I really enjoyed it.

Comments: Thank you for getting me on the right track. I have been ignoring Pennsylvania Dutch web sites and you were very helpful to me. I am very grateful. My family says that 3 Montgomery brothers came from Germany to Pennsylvania and worked in the coal mines for money. My great grandfather was William Nathaniel Montgomery born October 18, 1844 in Morgantown, Virginia, now West Virginia. This is on the border between West Virginia and Pennsylvania. I don't know his mother, father, parents or siblings. He married Anna Elizabeth McKinsie b. July 25, 1847 in Berne, Switzerland. She was supposed to have spoken 8 languages and have taught in the University of Berlin (this could have the University of Berne). I don't have when or where they were married. They lived in Albert Lea Minnesota when their oldest son was born and lived in Jefferson, Iowa when other children were born. I'm having a hard time finding German Montgomerys. Mabye they moved too much. Thank you for any help you can give.

Comments: My main concern at the moment, and the past couple of years, is to find the father and mother of my ggrandfather, Volney Bloss/Blass. He is supposed to have been born in Orleans County, NY 4/1832, but can find no source. My father once stated he thought his family was of Pennsylvania Dutch origin. I have looked into the Pennsylvania BLOSS family cursorily and somewhat more deeply into the NY Bloss/Blass Palatine family. I truly believe the line comes through NY but there is still two more lines to follow and that is the MA Bloss family from England and the group from RI, probably of French origin. Oh well, I'm retired and have nothing else but "Hony-Dews" and this stuff.

Comments: Thank you. I enjoyed your site and research. A cousin traced our family back to a Hessian Soldier. He was captured and bought to Carlisle to the now War College.The spelling changed from Wickert to a more English sounding name of Wickard. We have been told that German name meant dairy farmer.Oddly enough most of my Wickard relatives are just that...

Comments: I just loved the "Chicken Dance" music. I am originally from Nazareth and miss it terribly sometimes. I am coming home to visit in April and can't wait. Thanks again, I added your page to my "favorites" so when I get down and out and miss the North all I have to do is open up your page. Thanks again, it sounded great!!! Christa P.S. The info on the PA Dutch was very interesting as well. I am a teacher and another teacher said they were selling doughnuts next week and I asked if they were for Fastnachts Day, they looked at me very strangly and told me No they were just selling doughnuts. I got a kick out of it.

Comments: Thank you for your research. I have traced some of my relatives and found repeated use of the same name, including the repeatition first name for all children and thought they were particularly unoriginal in picking names for their children. I know understand that this was traditional. I am planning on looking for the naming patterns you discuss.

Comments: My first American born ancestor, Uriah Tippie, settled on the Lehigh river, was caught in a nightime flood (1787, I think) in which he and his wife lost their two children. The flood was thereafter called The Tippie Flood - and was used to compare later floods- until a larger flood occurred about 60 years later. He served in the Rev. War and was granted Warrant Land in Ohio. I'm just beginning my search for the other surnames listed above.
