this group are professional genealogists; amateur genealogists;
families; historians; hobbyists; all of varied ages, but all working
towards the same goal -- to fill in the missing pieces of our
lineage puzzle, to learn, discover, and share information on the
common thread of ancestry between the Original 13 Settlers of
Germantown, who came over on the Concord to Philadelphia in 1683.
We compare and share notes, lineage information, new findings,
history and theories, and sometimes even debate historical issues.
