By Schuyler C. Brossman JLihisrary ILInaeg THE CHRONICLE, Ellzabethtown, Pa., Thursday, December 29, 1977 25 Column 586 South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society Ancestral Charts, Vol. II Column No. 539, January 1977, was about the publication, of the South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society of Box 1824, York, Pa. 17405. That society had published the ancestor charts of some of its members, giving the names, dates, places, etc. referring to each ancestor. Just recently Vol. II of the Ancestral Charts was received which has additional information about the ancestors which has accrued since the first printing, new member's charts, and charts of members who were not in the first edition. Vol. II, is entitled, "The Articles of Confederation Edition of Ancestral Charts", with 396 pages in this book and thousands of ancestors. There are no charts, but the numbering system is easily followed. No. 1 on the chart is the member, Nos. 2 and 3 are his parents, and from there one doubles the number to get the ancestor, for example, No. 4 is the father of No. 2 and No. 5 is the wife of No. 4. Going further, as an example, the father of No. 20 will be No. 40 and No. 41 will be the wife of 40. The ancestors of No. 41 would be 82 and 83. Anyone who does not understand the numbering system should get a standard numbered pedigree chart and he can easily see how the system works. In addition to the second volume, there is an every name index booklet which has the index to Volume I on pages 1 to 52. The index to Vol. II, in the same booklet, appears on page 53 to 81. There are 81 pages, total, in the index booklet for a total of approximately 12,879 names for both Volumes I and II. Anyone interested in Vol. II and the index booklet, can order same from Rodney W. Trimmer, Book Committee, at the address above. The price of these two publications is $13.25 postpaid but Pennsylvanians will have to add 80 cents for Pa. State Tax. I do not know if there are still copies of Vol. I available. The price of Vol. I in Jan. 1977 was $4.75 postpaid, plus Pa. Sales Tax. However copies may all have been sold and if they were, the new price may be higher. The society has volunteers who will answer inquiries of a limited nature. More difficult inquiries are passed on to qualified researchers who will do the work for a fee. Anyone interested, please inquire. HOWER-HAUER FAMILY HISTORY H.

The above John and Elizabeth Arnold were sponsors for a child of Jacob Berckley and Fronica baptized 1790 at Canadochly, Lower Windsor Twp., York County.

(Comment For Hans Peter, Hans George, etc. watch also for their names as Peter, George, etc. because sometimes among the Pa. Germans Hans, or Johannes, was the Baptismal name only and they used their second name instead. Also, the nickname for Mary was Polly and Molly was the nickname for Magdalena, so maybe her name was Mary Magdalena. SCB) 3.

By SUSAN BOWSER The end of the year is a time to pause and reflect on the occurences of the past year. For the Elizabethtown Public Library it has been a very good year. We have increased our library hours 25 percent this year, from 40 hours a week to SO. This has been due to a more flexible staff and twelve new volunteers. The increase has been popular, especially the new Saturday afternoon hours. . The Library board has created a Future Planning Committee to investigate ways to improve the Library and extend services and increase the number of people served. Thanks to the Friends of the Library and their grant of money .the Library has been able to establish a f ilmstrip collection for community and individual use. A record program from Lancaster County Library has provided us with a well balanced, modern, popular record collection that appeals to all ages. A county wide Speak Out program provided us with the incentive to spread the word about the Library throughout the community. Response was very good. A questionnaire which accompanied the Speak Out was very encouraging with a large number of people saying they would be willing to aid the library in various ways. The number of people supporting the Library with financial contributions has nearly doubled this year. This broad base of support is very encouraging. We have also received a new governmental sponsor as West Donegal Township has joined Mount Joy Township and Elizabethtown Borough in funding the Library. (This was written before the Elizabethtown budget was approved and I am assuming, and praying, that they will continue to fund us to some extent.) But mainly it has been a good year because you have continued to use our services. Our circulation has increased over previous years. We have tried to provide the new books you want, the magazines and services you ask for and need. We have tried to make the library a comfortable, friendly place you will wish to visit. Your actions and comments tell us that we have been successful. We will strive to continue to supply your needs in the coming year. Happy New Year. The library will be closed December 31 through January 2 for the holidays.

There are clothes and food to be supplied, matters of health to care for, and schooling to be planned. There must be time for character training, companionship, and recreation, as well as work. But if we are too busy for prayer and Bible teaching in our homes, we are too busy. We are giving major attention to minor things, living for the passing things of time that do not satisfy the soul. And the end of our years will find us unprepared to meet God. We and our children have spiritual needs that must be met. We need to know Christ as Saviour and Lord. We need to take time every day to get inner strength from the Bible. We need to live for the things that will matter a thousand years from now when we will all be in eternity.'
