Re: New Member searching Schaffers in PA
- FYI....Nuremberg, PA is partially in Luzerne County and partially in
Schuylkill County. It also falls in two different townships--North
Union, Schuylkill, and Black Creek Twp., Luzerne. It is possible
records for your Schaffers would be in either Luzerne or Schuylkill
County. Hope this helps. D. Price
