Dear Mr. Hassinger,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you begin your family genealogy research by collecting as much information you can from family members. Then review NARA’s genealogy page for ideas what to do next. Many of the records you seek are available on genealogical websites such as FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, and fold3, even records from Germany. Records about Pennsylvania are available on these websites as well as from the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
