Description

Work on transcribing the vast database at Mumma.org into my family tree software with the present focus on the descendants of Frederick Mumma (1767-1822) and a future focus on the descendants of Johannes Mumma (1763-1829). Roxborough High School administration offers provisional approval for an after-school genealogy club, to be facilitated by yours truly—but only if yours truly can drum up enough interest. Lastly, and ancestor spotlight on Earl and Esther Hable. I supposed you could call them a "power couple" that stayed together in the face of great physical challenges.
