My husband's father was born in Clymer, PA in 26 Dec 1906. The family lived there from 1903-1907. I am looking for any information on any families living there named Bator or Foto. They were immigrants from Croatia and probably worked in the mines.

Greetings, Following my mitochondrial DNA trail, I am seeking information on and related to my 3rd great grandmother, Violet Mary RIDGE.

She was born about 1801 in PA, lived in Liberty, Tioga, PA, married William Mase, died about 1868 in Liberty and is believed to be buried in Union Cemetery, Liberty.

I'd be grateful for help in my quest and can exchange information on several related families from Liberty.

Thank you, Sherry Tulloch
