Greetings from Selinsgrove, Snyder County, Pennsylvania.
Our Home Page contains the multiple lines of our 16 Pennsylvania great-great grandparents from whom we claim descent (Miller, Coleman, Updegrave, Kimmel, Graybill, Hayes, Zeiders, Frank, Dunkelberger, Peifer, Leeser, Henninger, Gordon, Krauss, Erdley, Reed);
PLUS multiple, non-hereditary lines of the House of Cleves with alleged Pennsylvania descendants (Gebhardt, Custer, Doors, Op-den-Graeff, Umstadt, Comes);
PLUS multiple lines from the Family of the Holy Grail in the ancient House of David.
The Pennsylvania family DUNKELBERGER has been equated with the European families listed as Dunkelberg, Dongelberg, van Dongelberg, de Dongelberg, von Dongelberg, am Dunkelberg, Dunckelnberg, Tongelberg, Tonkelberg.The DONGELBERG lines (de, van, von, am) are listed as nonhereditary lines (either bastard or morganatic) of the House of Brabant.
For purposes of global indexing, the maiden name of the mother is used as the middle name for her children, when no middle name is found among the extant records, for all individuals with common surnames after the year A.D. 1500.
All of our research is posted as an OUTLINE AND THESIS for the reading public to help validate or repudiate by the submission of additional data for the correction of known misinformation.
