Re: All DeTurk/ DeTurck
Thank you for the post to my question abouy Deturcks. I already checked on this information since I live in Reading PA. where this book originated. We are aware, in this area, that a lot of his information is inaccurate because he tended to not check his sources and embelished his work to make it more interesting than it originally was. His work is a rare view into the families and the daily activities of the Berks County area. I would suggest that the information may be used a narative but not as a true 100% authority on the listed families.
Again, thanks for the information and if you personally know of any Deturk/Deturcks in your area I would like to contact them so I may accurately finish the interesting stories of one of the premier families in this country.
They are all related, since they had only one member of theirfamily come here from Europe.
