So, that is MY family.
I do have contact with the descendants of one son and one daughter of Jacob and Sarah, and also, the other son and one daughter of Abraham and Mary Jane. If you will leave me a message, I can help you contact your family.
I would like to act as a sort of clearing house for BETSINGER information. Maybe, I can help you. Someday, you will help someone else. If we share our information, together we can all achieve our goals. I have never heard of the BETSINGERs having a creed or motto, but that is a good description of my family.
TOGETHER WE CAN ALL ACHIEVE OUR GOALS!
I have information on four other families, from around the country, all related at this time. All have been traced to New York state. There are researchers working on each branch of the tree.
