The original version of this website was created in 1995. The main focus has always been genealogy, but, there is more. One section is devoted to my career in radio broadcasting. There's also a menu item that will take you to my eBay store. I do appreciate your visit and hope that you enjoy it!

About

I am not a professional genealogist, although I have been doing this for several decades and I am happy to help if I can. I have a tremendous interest in Pennsylvania genealogy, especially Philadelphia, Berks and Northumberland counties, as well as Cwmyoy in Monmouthshire, Wales. Honestly, I can't really help with British research. I'm stuck back at 1805 myself. But, I can help with Mid-Atlantic State searches, especially Pennsylvania, back to about 1850.

So, here are a few guidelines; Please include the full name of the person about whom you are seeking more information including the maiden names for females if you know them, as much date event information as you can (birth, death, marriage, etc.), names of siblings and location data.

If you send an email and ask, "Are we related?", without any details, the answer is, "Yes". Because, we're all related. The problem is I won't be able to tell how! Chances are that we're NOT closely related on the Price side of my family. Unless you're a descendant of John Robert Price, who settled in Boone, Iowa, Peter Price from Scranton, or Edwin Price from Philadelphia, then your guess is as good as mine.

It also helps if you acknowledge any response you get from me with a reply. I'm especially fond of terms like, "thank you". It can inspire me to help you even more. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Best of Luck in Your Genealogical Quest!
