Adrian, I have lots of Lossing information that I'd be happy to share. If you have access to a good library, check to see if it has a journal called the Record, published by the NY Genealogical and Biographical Society. In July 1999, they started publishing an article I wrote about the first 5 generations of the family. It is still being published, and the last installment should appear in the January or April 2000 issue. If you can't find the article, contact me and I can send you a copy of what's been published so far. I'd also like details of your Lossing descent so I can check my database for any information I have.
