Because of a recent change in the PA Genweb Project, the new 'state coordinator', Nathan Zipfel, has removed me from the Pennsylvania mailing list and put my pages up for adoption. He's been trying to take over these pages for a year but I didn't want to give them up. He's removing the link from his page so he can do want he wants with my counties, but these pages will continue to be open for anyone who wants to visit. Bookmark this page for future visits because it won't be available from Nathan Zipfel's page. You can also visit my Clearfield County page.
