English Anflick gravestone photos have been posted to Find-A-Grave. In preparing my application for the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania's First Families lineage society, I've ordered birth and marriage records for my paternal grandparents.

This month on the podcast, Jenkintown Library ditches Ancestry.com! I'll let you know where I'm getting my Ancestry fix now. It turned up some 18th century baptism records from Switzerland. Also, the second "Special Interest Group" at the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania was a success! I networked with a pair of interesting people there this month, and shared my own family history "brick wall" involving some 19th century Pickersgills. Links are in the show notes.
Happy New Year! It's been an exciting month so far. First, I renew my membership to the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania and pay a couple visits. Then I profile a pair of prominent business-owning families: the Corrs and the Dambachs. Lastly, I make some progress on a long-standing family history mystery involving the Donleys of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Links are in the show notes.
I wrap up 2022 with a few short updates for December, including some new Find-a-Grave activity. I discuss some recent research into the Sarah Calvert, the mother of our line of Pickersgills in America, and I wrap up with some predictions/resolutions for the new year. I also threw a Christmas surprise in here from the vault. Links are in the show notes.
The Berry family is the next stop on my gallery reformatting tour. This month I detail all that I have recently learned about the Berry family, who were early cousins of the Harrisons going back to the late 19th century. I begin the detail with the results of my recent trip to Woodland Cemetery in West Philadelphia, where baby Joseph Berry was buried in 1871. Links in the show notes.
