Ever wonder how those long-ago ancestors decided where to live in the New World? The following information on Pennsylvania migration
Cline’s UMC is a church located in the rural area of Gardners PA 11 miles from the square in Gettysburg, traveling NORTH on Carlisle St. (which becomes PA route 34, Biglerville Road) approximately 7 miles to the second traffic light in Biglerville. Continue approximately 4.1 miles to Cline’s Church Road, which is at a fork in the road just past Little Italy Restaurant. Taking the left fork follow Cline’s Church Road until you come to the old stone church on the right-hand side of the road approximately 1 mile.
Between 1893 and 1907, information on births was compiled by local tax assessors and then turned in to the county. Often a birth was recorded six months to a year after the actual event. The records do not include maiden names of mothers. Records are incomplete; not every birth was recorded. The only record that exists is the register itself; there are no certificates on file. There are a total of 23,351 births recorded in this database.
A person whose birth was not recorded or who wished to correct a birth register entry could file a delayed birth record. These records began in 1941, but cover births for the 1893-1907 period (some are earlier). Married women are indexed under both maiden and married names. There are 3719 birth records in this database.
