Hi, all — If you haven’t discovered the genealogical journal, Annals of Genealogical Research, try this new article. It is a journal that is published online, and it is free! You can also read through the Archives to view all the previous issues published.
The article investigates who were the parents of Michael Minnich, who died in 1847 in Adams County, Pennsylvania. It gathers evidence from original sources, and tracks his movements. It considers and then eliminates two candidates for his father, overviews the larger family structure of some Pennsylvania Minnichs, and then reaches the plausible conclusion that his parents were Jacob and Christina Minnich.
