I am researching the Ziegler family tree.I became interested in genealogy after discovering I had a Civil War Veteran, Oliver J. Ziegler, in my family tree.This tree includes the Shoulders/Sholders, Goslin/Gosling, Stratton, and Renter surnames as well as the Zieglers.I have already found several "cousins" as a result of my research.I would welcome hearing from anyone with any additions or corrections.I am willing to share information.
I am also researching the Isaacs family tree which includes the Ayars, Lockhart, Pyle, and Gerlacher surnames, to name a few.The latter three have roots in Philadelphia as well as Tamaqua, Pennsylvania area.My Isaacs ancestor is Lewis Isaacs.I would love to hear from anyone with any ties to these families.
A great deal of my research has been local, Salem and Gloucester counties, in New Jersey.Both my Ziegler and Isaacs ancestors settled in the area and never left.Several of my "cousin connections" have been a direct result of my research in either the Salem County Historical Society or the Gloucester County Historical Society.The cousins have been very generous in sharing their information and photographs as well.Meeting these cousins and getting to know them has been the most rewarding part of my search into my family tree.
