I am new to the blogging community but, as my family tree has grown, I decided that this is the best way to share my findings and make new connections.
I have been interested in genealogy in about 30 years and have worked on it off and on during that time.

An Amazing Weekend

I just had the most amazing weekend! I went to Pennsylvania with my mother as she wanted to attend a stamp show but did not want to drive. While she enjoyed her stamps, I enjoyed seeing some historic sites and making friends with cousins I had not met previously.
First, my 6th great-grandfather, Conrad Weiser lived in Womelsdorf, PA and I went to his homestead. While the buildings were not open, I got to walk around the grounds, peek in windows and see the monuments. http://conradweiserhomestead.org/index.asp
Then, I went to tour the Ephrata Cloister, where Conrad spent some time for spiritual reflection and renewal.
And, best of all, I spent Saturday morning and afternoon meeting and getting to know some cousins and share pictures and family stories. It was fantastic.


  1. Yes...it was a FANTASTIC weekend! I enjoyed meeting my cousins!

  2. Nancy,

    I think you and I may have a common cousin.
