will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.

extract from Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylavania, Vol.1,by John W. Jordan, Brookhaven Press, ISBN:1-58103-507-1/1581035071. Google search says out of print. Written, I expect in early 1900's, and I also speculate the Berner section was commissioned by Baltasar's son, Alois, who was succesful local businessman and community leader and gets majority of attention here. Hope to hear from you. Ken Berner, Pittsburh, PA
