I have lived in Hanover, Pennsylvania all my life, and I thought I knew all that there was to know about this small town. Since I started my journey researching my husband's family, I quickly learned that that was not true.
My main focus was on the Staub family line. I quickly added the Groft line, then the Smith line, and now the Wilt line. I was warned by fellow genealogists to only focus on one family line at a time. Hanover is a small community and it is understandable that this cross-over of families exists. So focusing on one family was just not possible!
Since starting my journey I have found previously documented information on these families, as most genealogists today have found. A part of me wonders, 'what is left for me to find?" Where can I dig deeper to add to my database? I wonder, too, who else has asked this question and what new research angle turned up interesting family facts.
It would be fun hearing from other genealogists and to share experiences. I would involve the family, but it seems like this is my journey and ONLY my journey.
