Well, I have been following this forum for over a year now and I guess it is time to jump in.My name is Steve Ketner and I am from Pottstown, Pa.All of my ancestors are from Berks County so I have been able to trace my history back easier than most.
Most of my relatives are buried at St Michaels Church in Hamburg, with some others in Kutztown.My lineage goes like this: Steve, William, George, Ulysses, Isaac, John, Paul, John David (this is the only one I have trouble identifying with), Heinrich Adam.I have document from Raymond Hollenbach called The Ketners and deals primarily with the Heinrich Adam side of the family. I have been to the Old Red Church and seen most of the graves but it was a rainy day and I did not get everything I wanted. Most of my family still lives in Pottstown, so I do plan a return trip this spring with the intent of spending several days doing research. I have acquired much info that I will share with anyone.Likewise If you have any infoon the Ketners in the Berks or Schuylkill county I would be interested.
