Peter Conrad was a deacon of the Lutheran church for many years until his death 3-5-1765 at 78 years old. He is mentioned in the book The Perkiomen Region, Past and Present, Vol. 1. I am trying to find out if he was born in US or came on an early boat. Also trying to find out anything, even maiden name of his first wife, Anna Rosina ??. The book mentions his kids, of which, Maria Euphronica Conrad born 1737, I am an ancestor of. Any direction, books, church records, or anything at all you could point me towards would be much appreciated. I was on the hunt for an early land warrant from the Frankfort Land Company or William Penn or if he was a squatter in 1717 with his 100 acres. His land butted up to Valentine Grieger, and early settler in Falkner Swamp area and who more information is written about. Thank you

Dear Nola,

Thanks for your comment. Great questions, but they're a little out of scope in terms of what we can answer via a blog comment. I highly recommend that you email your questions to ReadyReference@hsp.org so that someone can directly contact you. Our reference staff will certainly be able to direct you further in your search.

Best of luck with your research,

Cary Hutto
Assistant Director of Archives
