Hello fellow Burkholder's! I am currently near Carlisle, PA and will be researching the family tree information that I'm missing in the 60 mile radius of Harrisburg. Is there anyone available to give some help to a long lost relative?

Is anyone here related to the Burkholders of West Cocalico, PA?

Still no help, no Showalter's either.

Wonderful !!! Please tell her I send my greetings and am glad to hear shes still active . We [ Ruth and I ] are both members of Burkholder Family Association . I have been working on my research for over 40 years now and still not finished and I'm only doing my direct line !  I can't even imaging hers and all the work she put into it . Anyhow , I'm glad to have helped . Love , JoAnn.

Thanks. I'm actually a friend of Ruth's and we have shared notes. She is still alive and well. Was just trolling to see what might come up here, and to offer info I might have of interest to others on collateral lines.
