A tree with many Lehigh ancestors from 1770 to 1920 is now online at:
Most records have reliable church or census sources cited and are based on solid research.
Major surnames are Beacher, Bicher, Beecher, Bucher, Bury, Diehl, Eisenhard, Eisenhart, Eisenhuth, Geist, George, Hamman, Houd, Jacobs, Knerr, Knorr, Michal, Michael, Millhouse, Muhlhause, Newhart, Papenkuhl, Riegel, Saylor, Seiler, Seilor, Schneider, Snyder, Smith, Vautrin, Wotring. In addition to Lehigh listings span Schuylkill, Northumberland, Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks, Dauphin County.

I need help finding ancestors of the Bury family of Allentown, who immigrated from Germany in 1885. Hubert Bury had his jewelry shop on N 7th Street from 1900 to 1910. I found him in the 1910 Census in Allentown but could not in 1900, although we know he lived there then. If anyone has a 1900 index and can help? Hubert was born 25 Apr 1857 in Germany and died 27 June 1812 and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery in Emmaus. We're searching for his obituary or anything that would indicate what German city he came from. His complete story is at:
Hope you find your Lehigh Roots at this new site, both my dad and mom are from Allentown and we have many Lehigh ancestors dating to the early 1700's in our tree.
