May 22: Page Problems. Changes to the internal structure of these pages are underway. Please report any broken links or other problems through the feedback link in the lower left part of most pages.

May 25: Bowmansville, PA Photos. These photos by Romaine Stauffer include the grave marker of Jacob Good (GC2) (1712-1777), Pine Grove Church, and a mill built by Jacob's brother Christian Good (GC3). Romaine's book Hidden Riches tells the story of the emigration of her ancestors from Germany into this same area. Some of them arrived on the same ship as Jacob's father Peter Good (GC).

May 26: Statue of Liberty Web Cam. The Arriving from Europe link on the family history page now has a link to a continuous, live web cam of the Statue of Liberty, a tribute to our immigrant heritage. If weather conditions are blocking the view, try again later. The statue actually arrived after our ancestors, following in their footsteps, but her welcoming words are still ring true.

May 29: Peter Good (GC) Update. This includes a transcription of his will written in 1753.

Jun 7: Early Good History. Pages 674- 675 of an 1883 history tells about the immigrants Jacob Good (GC2), his sister Anna Good (GC1) Musselman, and their brother Christian Good (GC3) settling in the Bowmansville, PA area around 1737.

Jun 28: Bowmansville, PA Revised. This page and many of the links from it now have new information and photos from research in May and June.
