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.

Edwina St. Rose has informed us that there is now a website for the Daughters of Zion Cemetery in Charlottesville: https://daughtersofzioncemetery.org/ The website also has an index of the name of people known to be buried at this cemetery, with information about them, clips of obituaries, etc. The recovery of information about the people buried here is an on-going project, so remember to recheck it at various times to see if anything new has surfaced about individuals you’re interested in.
