I have decided to put more links on this page to help others researching in the same area as my family. Some of the European birth towns are: KLEINSCHMIDT from Balfanz, Prussia and DUBAS from Zboriv, Ukraine. Most of my United States ancestors lived in Pennsylvania, including the counties of Berks, Philadelphia, and Montgomery. Here are some of the sites I have found to help my research in these areas.

This site includes maps, phone directories, obituaries, mailing lists, German Archives Addresses, Queries, just to name a few things.
