Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I, for one, will be missing the closure of the forums, to which i have contributed over several years, both posing questions and providing responses.

Both of my parents lived somewhat east of Pittsburgh. My mother's g-grandfather was John Henry Uhlenberg, who was born in 1822 in Hanover, and sailed from Bremen, arriving in Baltimore on 25 May 1840.

Mr. Euhlenberg had at least one daughter, Mary Eva, who was born in Wexford PA in 1847. One of…Continue
