Places On My Bucket List ...

Over the past few days, a meme started by Larry Lehmer of Passing It On has been going around the genealogy blogs. In his post, Larry asked, "What places do you want to visit before dying?"

So, what three places do I want to visit before I die? Well, here are three ancestral areas that I want to visit:
  1. Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania - Well, I want to be able to visit and do research in that county as my ancestors lived there. (Of course, I don't know how long and in all of the townships which they lived.)
  2. United Kingdom and Ireland (Great Britain) - I'd actually like to visit, so that I can do research this time and remember the visit. (Yes, I visited, but I was a baby at that time.) As my ancestors lived in various places in Great Britain, it is easier for me to just list the names of the countries.
  3. Germany - I have been to Germany before (and I remember this trip!), but I haven't been to the locations where my ancestors lived. As I don't know all of the locations where my ancestors lived in Germany, I can only list Germany at the moment.

Well, those are my three places. I would list more, but I was only supposed to list three places for this meme. (Of course, there are other places I would like to visit that are not related to my genealogy.)

Some of my forebears lived in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania as well. I have quite a large database of residents of Tell, Shirley and Dublin Townships. Do you have ancestors from any of those?

Hi Kathryn,

At the moment, I haven't done a lot of research in Huntingdon, but the main two townships are Walker
and Juniata.

The surnames I am researching there so far are:
