Hope you can find a link on the left that

Remember Freedom Isn't Free.
Have a safe and enjoyable year. If you can't find
fireworks to view around your home, and check our Fireworks

Fireworks! Make your own fireworks display
without the danger of explosives. Check out the link
below! We leave it here all year.
While your at it..... I try to steer folks to a special
page on our website that brings chills to my spine every time I
read it. Check out "The
Unknown Speaker" to see what I mean.
There are zillions of sites that share the
story and history of America. We're proud to share a small bit
of that part of our family's history on our site. But we also
like to share other's sites when we come across them. Josie
found this one recently and I'll include these two links to a
couple specific pages about our Great Country. Click on the link
below and then check out some of the "Patriotic Pages"
Enjoy your freedom and remember
from whence it came.
Although we consider this site
a personal web site and we'll share some personal information, the primary reason for the
site is to assist in gathering Genealogical Information
about our WEIGEL family heritage. Anyone having similar interests can send an email from
one of the email links and share their information.
We're not certain how often the
updating process will occur with these pages but come back often and check it out. Who
knows, maybe we'll have something of interest for you.
A little about the
site. Due to
the amount of content on some of the pages you may find it more comfortable to set your
display resolution to 800 x 600. More of the page will fit on the screen and you won't
have to scroll as much. The site was created with Microsoft FrontPage 98 and with at least
one of the links you will do best with a browser that will play music.
Enjoy our site and if you've
found that you can add to our family history, let us know.
for new stuff, I received a copy of a map of Moon
Township (presently in the year 2000) Beaver County
Pennsylvania from my cousin Greg. Many thanks to the
relatives that keep sending more info. I'm going to try
to match up some areas of today with those from this map
added a navigation link here, and on the left, to a page for FAMILY
REUNIONS and on that page have listed links to
family reunions that I've heard about. Although these
dates are for the year 2000, we'll list the new reunion
dates as soon as we know them. Maybe some of you
who've been communicating over the last months and
years, would like to join these cousins you've never
seen. Check them out and maybe we'll see you there.
We've also added those photos of the
"Cemetery Headstones" of a number of our ancestors
for those of you who need documentation for your
genealogical research. Some were
unreadable but you'll find a pretty fair amount very
Haven't had the time to add the
latest "Deed" to the site yet but we'll get it
there. It's the deed for the Weigel Farm called "Rasbery"
which was purchased on June 18, 1787 from Jacob Bausman.
The Real Estate business wasn't a whole lot different
back then. Jacob Bausman originally purchased the 400
acres on October 9, 1786, just 8 months previous, for
the sum of "Three pounds six shillings and eight
pence". Daniel Weigel paid Jacob Bausman, and his
wife Elizabeth, "Two hundred and Twenty five
pounds" for the same 400 acres! Not a bad profit!
I should have the Jacob Bausman Deed
and the Daniel Weigel deed transcribed shortly. Keep
Check out some of the other items on our web
site. If you don't read anything else, read the story about the "Unknown Speaker"
. If you're anything like me, it'll give you "goose
bumps"! The "Oaths of Allegiance and Abjuration",
is also a bit of history that has to do with our heritage. Read the biographies of a couple men in our family's
lineage from the Revolutionary War..... John Hart and
John Morton. Both men were signers of the Declaration of
Independence and each sacrificed much for our freedom.
"A Fourth of
July Celebration by Aristotle"
Fourth of July has passed but we leave the fireworks link on
continually. The site has a number of games and "trivia" questions that are
rather challenging. Check it out and see how many of the trivia questions you can answer.
FireWorks! Maybe you
didn't get a chance to enjoy it during the 4th celebration when we first put it out.
Here's the best, in my estimation. This site uses MacroMedia's Shockwave to build a
fireworks display. It's a big file ..... almost 600K in size but once it's loaded (took
about 3 minutes on our 56K modem), you'll be happy you did. YOU
can choose the city skyline and YOU are the one that sets off
the fireworks! Choose how fast, what color and what shape. It's a great celebration. If
you don't have Shockwave on your system, you can download it at the site. This site is
complements of "Aristotle Internet Services", an ISP in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Their complete site is really well done. Give it a try.
We've made some significant changes in the genealogy section of the site. Check
it out, 'cause we've begun to add the Baker side of
the family. I'm working on a more complete version but right now we're including the
portions of the family associated with OUR branch of this tree. There is a combination of
page styles until I get everything converted but I think the changes being made are for
Thanks for visiting. Keep watching and maybe your branch will show up.
I keep saying I'm going to get
the jukebox going, and I will, but until I do, here are a couple links to my page with the MIDI sites
having Bluegrass and Classical music. Stick with me.
