    I love reading about your relative Andreas Hagenbuch. He is also my relative ( 6th GGFather) on my mother’s side through her grandfather, Hiram Cleveland Varner.

    I’m interested to find out more information. I’ve been doing extensive research of my own family. This article is very similar to the story I found on my own ancestor Jorg Heinrich Ernstberger. Same ship, same arrival date, same wife, as well as Barbara being mentioned. I found my information through a historical organization. Let me know if you’d like to read what I have. I would like to get correct story before adding to my own family tree. Thank you Sara

    Hello Andrew,
    So are you sure the photo you have of Philadelphia is actually that city. The reason I ask is I am comparing it with other early photos and there are no bun top roofs in that city.

    Christain Burgi (Burkie) (Berkey), (Burgli), whose child died on the Charming Nancy on August 19, 1737, was my 5th great grandfather. I would love to see his signature. How do I access that archive? The current spelling in our area is Berkey but I have seen many alternate spellings.
