Hi Randy, great post. I had a question on your use of the Ahnentafel numbering. How are you handling this in RootsMagic for your ancestors? Do you add a manual REFR number as a fact to each person, or does RootsMagic help?

Randy,

I noticed a number of German Valley references here. I was at the German Valley Cemetery yesterday.

If you are missing any information on your ancestors who lived in German Valley, now Long Valley, Morris County, Hunterdon County, Sussex and Warren County, please let me know.

Thank you,

Russ
