The Community Connection - - LOCAL NEWS - Dear Richard Orth, A Look Back in History colum­nist — Eleanor Dreibel­bis Mertz­town

Your in­for­ma­tion have been in­ter­est­ing af­ter I got my grand­son to set up my CD ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The num­ber of chests the Biebers com­pleted was awe­some. I am pleased to be a de­scen­dant of the pi­o­neer Ge­orge Bieber and the ex­tended fam­ily.

Also, I am a de­scen­dant of the Ja­cob Sharadin fam­ily and the chest with that name in­scribed on the front of it. Still more ex­cite­ment.

This past week in the Pa­triot, you showed scrivener work done in the his­toric Keim home. Again, this was ex­cit­ing be­cause I am a de­scen­dant of Esther Keim of the Keim home who mar­ried Hein­rich Schlegel of the his­toric Fleetwood farm where my Grand­mother Charette Schlegel was born and raised.

So, many thanks for the history you are avail­ing to the pub­lic and es­pe­cially to me and my fam­ily. We are still learn­ing valu­able facts about our an­ces­try, all very much ap­pre­ci­ated.
