The Kin Konnection Day will be for everyone that is interested in a family

tree or have a stumbling block in their research to get some help in his

or her research. Researchers will have the opportunity to meet other

cousins and share family history or genealogy information. Research will be

available this day and people will have the opportunity to tour the library and

ask questions. Librarians will be available on duty to assist researchers.

A group of researchers with years of experience will be available to share

information with other researchers. This group has family from every part

of Blair County and into Bedford and Huntingdon Counties. Most have

information back to and before 1846, the formation of Blair County. Some may even

belong to the Daughters or Sons of the American Revolution. Information

will be available on different Cultures, including the African American

families of Blair County.

A partial list of names the group will have information on is: Aurandt,

Bathurst, Bousum, Brenneman, Delozier, Elder, Eller, Emigh, Feathers,

Gutwald, Henderson, Hoover, Imler, Kelly, Lowe, McClellan, McIntire, Moyer,

Musselman, Pottsgrove, Shaffer, Snyder, Speece, Spielman, Stimer, Walker, Walter,

Williams, Wilt, Woomer, Yingling Streightiff, Thompson, Delozier,

Litzinger and many other names from the Blair County Area

Genealogy books will be on for sale including the Burley, Claar, Rhodes,

Claycomb, Keller, Huyett, Igou, Moyer, Joseph Snyder, Peter Kratzert, Mock,

Ickes, Musselman, and more.

The 1846 tax records will be available; people may look for relatives that

may have lived when Blair County was formed. A direct relative listed in

this book would qualify them to be a member of the First Family of Blair

County. Find out more information to be a member of this group.

Whether you are starting a family tree or you have a stumbling block in

your research, this will be the time to meet others that may have information

on your family. Challenge us with your name and see where it will lead

you. Come out and join us, bring a friend and have a good time.
