I have been researching my family lines since 1975, mostly in Central Pennsylvania.  My family lines stretch back to 1635 when William Beardsley arrived in Massachusetts, 1682 when Richard Wall arrived in Philadelphia and 1686, with Sarah Shoemaker’s arrival in Philadelphia. The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania recently awarded me First Family of Pennsylvania, Colony and Commonwealth membership.  I have successfully completed 150 applications or supplements for the Daughters of the American Revolution, Sons of the American Revolution, Sons of the Revolution and Children of the American Revolution. I have been awarded 2014 Outstanding Volunteer Genealogist for Pennsylvania.

I am available for consultation of your research in these lineage societies and other research in Pennsylvania.  If you would need a record in a Central Pennsylvania repository, I will travel to many local sights.  I also will photograph gravestones, buildings, etc.

Memberships in lineage Societies includes: NSDAR, The Welcome Society, United States Daughters of 1812, and Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War 1861-1865, as well as those previously mentioned.

If you are eligible to join The Welcome Society, I am the reviewing genealogist.  Contact the society at  http://www.welcomesociety.org/

  1. Hello Ms. White-Hershey, Sharon Martini has directed me to you in regard to my ancestor Robert James Moore. Through him, I seeking membership in the Society of Colonial Wars. May I send you by attachment my ancestor’s Penna. Veterans Burial Card? He is buried at Spring Creek Cemetery, College Township. Although I am a member of the SAR and SR, I have not been able to verify if Robert Moore was in Colonial Service. Thank you, Gus

    1. Gus,
      I’m sorry to be so late in replying to your email, but just found it in my GenRem mail and it wasn’t forwarded to my regular email. If you have not already found someone, please send your burial card along and I can take a quick look. I can’t promise anything, at this time I’m not taking any new clients.
