The end of summer is nigh! In today's episode, I tell you about my amazing finds from this summers trips through Milton, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, and to Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. I was able to photograph some ancient Hougendobler gravestones in Milton, and some very old Mumma(h) gravestones in Lancaster. I also stumbled upon some obscure and informative travelling pastors' records at The Lancaster County Historical Society, now more commonly known as LancasterHistory. Links are in the show notes.

This month on the podcast, Jenkintown Library ditches! I'll let you know where I'm getting my Ancestry fix now. It turned up some 18th century baptism records from Switzerland.
