Family genealogies of Berlin, Somerset County, and surrounding areas.

Last year I began a project to combine images of Dr. Saylor's transcriptions and reports from my database. All the pages are in digital format. Organizing the pages in an efficient reporting order remains on my to-do list. This effort continues as I add to my database. However, the next project is my current priority.
Pine Hill Lutheran Church records.

This project will combine images of Dr. Saylor's translation of the German entries, images of the original pages of the Pine Hill Church records and a sorted listing for display of the images side-by- side. Dr. Saylor's pages have been recorded in digital format. A high quality digital camera has been borrowed to capture high-quality images of the Church records.
The final product will be produced on CD or DVD media.
