    Because I have had some of the same problems, I will give you some places to check. Do a surname search on rootsweb.com and myfamily.com and familysearch.org

      I am Margie. I began doing my genealogy in 1975 when everything was
      done by snail mail. After a few years I put it away until 1998 when I
      got my first computer. I was amazed at the resources on the internet
      and quickly moved forward on all the lines I was researching. Then my
      computer died and I again put it away for a few years. I have
      recently begun again. I am disabled so it has been difficult to do
      library research and because of a fixed low income I cannot afford
      Ancestry. I have been helped tremendously by other researchers and
      have met many relatives. I began copying all that I had and sending
      it out to, at least one relative in all my lines so that my
      information would not be lost and hoping they would share it will all
      who had any interest.

      Some of the lines I am researching are:
      Walter from West Cocalico Twp. Lancaster Co. PA
      Shepler from Rostraver Twp. Westmoreland Co. PA
      Hanley/Handley from VA>Fountain Co. IN 1830
      Jenkins from Preston Co. VA>Warren Co. OH>Fountain Co. IN
      Oostdyk and Wichers and Ulberg from the Netherlands>MI

      One of my brick walls is Cynthia Elizabeth George who was born in IN
      in 1841 and married 1859 in Vermilion Co. IL and died 1861-1867 in
      Vermilion Co. IL. I cannot find any George Family in 1860 in
      Vermilion Co. IL and I cannot find her in the 1850 Census' of IN. I
      surmise the family George would be located in Fayette Co. IN in 1850.

      Another is to identify which Hanley/Handley line my William Hanley of
      the 1830 Census Fountain Co. IN is from.

      Thank you for allowing me to join the group.

      Margie
