JUMP TO INDEX

Members of this group are professional genealogists; amateur genealogists; families; historians; hobbyists; all of varied ages, but all working towards the same goal -- to fill in the missing pieces of our lineage puzzle, to learn, discover, and share information on the common thread of ancestry between the Original 13 Settlers of Germantown, who came over on the Concord to Philadelphia in 1683. We compare and share notes, lineage information, new findings, history and theories, and sometimes even debate historical issues.

The List Group is sponsored by Rootsweb, and run by the founder of the group, Vince Summers. The archives are searchable, and are available to the public, but you can not post to the group unless you are subscribed. To subscribe, follow the steps outlined in the "Here's how to subscribe" section.

It's serious business, but we all have allot of fun, and we invite YOU to join in if you have an interest in genealogy connected to the Original 13 Settlers of Germantown, Pennsylvania, and their descendants.
