PLEASE READ: Where to Post

I'm trying to organize things a bit so I've made threads in the Discussion Forum for each county. If you know where the people you are researching lived, please post your queries, information, etc. in the appropriate thread/county. If you don't know where in Western PA the people you are researching lived or if they lived in multiple counties, go ahead and post to the Comment Wall below. Also, if you feel your post is urgent or you want it to be viewed by the whole group, post to the Comment Wall. As always, everyone is also still welcome to start their own discussion threads.

Since Genealogy Wise doesn't allow the option of displaying ALL Discussion Forum threads, some won't appear below. If you don't see the county or discussion that you are looking for below, click on "View All" in the bottom right of the Discussion Forum and you should be able to find it there. Thanks!

I have a transcription of a court petition asking for a guardian to be named for children of a deceased father.  The petition appears to have been filed in mid-1802 and states that it is Westmoreland county.  The records that the county holds may or may not inclued either this date or type of record.  I have written twice to the county asking if they have the document and they have not replied.  Anyone have luck communicating with them??

First off my grandmother didn't take the McCarty name.
The McCarty's first names are John and Anna (Lindsey) McCarty.
I have some info on them from a gr grandchild of theirs but she didn't know alot.

To Mooneysearch,
Did Ruth take the McCarty name or did she stay Hageman?
Comment by Pam Nixon on February 14, 2010 at 5:43am
To Mooneysearch,
Do you have first names on the McCarty family? I live not far from McDonald so I might be able to find something for you.

I am looking for help with people named George and Laura Hageman.
From what I know they lived in Pittsburgh during the late 1890's and had a daughter named Ruth in 1903.
Sometime around the time she was born they moved to Washington County. Midway or McDonald area.
Ruth ended up living with a family named McCarty around the age of 1.
Why I don't know. But from some info I have gotten she was an orphan by then.
I don't have much info on the Hagemans. I have a few census with a George on it but not sure if it's him. One is the 1900 from Pittsburgh showing his father as George and mother as Sarah. The other is a 1910 again city of Pittsburgh. But I don't think this is him. Someone HELP!!!!! LOL

It should have the names of the parents for both the bride and groom. Make sure you request a copy of the actual license and the license application.
Comment by Judy Broleman on February 7, 2010 at 7:07pm
Thank you so much. Do you think the marriage record will contain the names of the bride's parents?
Comment by Pam Nixon on February 7, 2010 at 5:06pm
To Judy Broleman,
The marriage record information for Westmoreland County is on-line in the e-services section of the Westmoreland County Courthouse website. Here is the information on your ancestors:
Record #: 30972 License #: 30972 Date Issued: 7/8/1911

*******************MARRIAGE*******************
DATE: 7/8/1911

************MALE INFORMATION************ **********FEMALE
INFORMATION**********
Full Name: BROLEMAN JOSEPH VOELKER ANNA

If you send the above information with a $10.00 fee to:

Westmoreland County Courthouse
Earl S. Keim II, Register of Wills
2 N. Main Street
Suite 301
Greensburg, PA 15601

you can acquire a copy of the original marriage license.

Thanks Pam! This "Hall" line seemed to stay with the Lutheran Church - That early period, records may have belonged to the pastor? Pension application does not specfiy town, just county.
