Comments: Hi there, I just typed my name in Google and there was this website! What a coincidence. I was born in 1955 in Maidstone ,Kent, England, and my Father- Leslie Jeffery (now deceased) was born in Whitstable, Kent, England. I wonder if we are somehow related?. I must congratulate you on a wonderful website which has obviously taken a great deal of time and effort to put together.

Comments: Greetings from Chesapeake, VA. I really enjoyed your site. My grand father Alphonse Joseph Erbalnd was a brother of August Erbland. I have been doing research and hit one of those peverbial brick walls, and have let my work lapse for a while. Your web site has renewed my interest and I would like to converse with any other relatives of the Erbland family. Thanks again for the junp start Richard Morris

Comments: Dutchess Co. is in my ancestry, too, and one of the most difficult places for research, I think. Some of the Quakers from Nine Partners went to Danby, VT and finally to Collins. You've done a great job on the website and thanks for bringing it to my attention.
