1. HALLS OF PENNSYLVANIA.
Before discovering George Haal and our ancestral line, we had begun to assemble
various Hall references in the Perry County area that possibly pertained to our
family. What results in this genealogy is our supposed ancestors beneath the
entry "Our Hall Ancestors" and other lines as yet unconnected under
the entry "Other Halls of Central Pennsylvania".
Individuals in this second group are identified with a last name followed immediately
by a figure in parentheses to indicate separate lines. (The particular figure
given each one means nothing--they are regularly restructured for clarity.) In
working in this way, an exhaustive documentation is being developed on the Hall
name in the region without including them specifically within our family. These
included "stray" lines then remain to be connected to our own if more
evidence ever turns up.
One caveat to this method is the likelihood that many unrelated individuals will
be included in the database. This could prove particularly challenging for us
because a line of over two thousand English Halls exists in only four counties
away in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. While that line is not included here,
there are other Halls, especially from counties east, that have been included
because they could very well be part of George's line.
A different convention is used to distinguish Halls throughout the database that
are probably unrelated. These unlikely non-Germanic Halls are denoted with pluses
("+"), to distinguish them from the other possible connections.
I do hope that the following account is accurate. Please feel free to contact
me regarding any of this information with comments, questions, or corrections.
