We have been fortunate to have a number of individuals and organizations assist us in our research.  The following is a listing of just a few of them.

 Genealogy Contributors

Donald Crosser (KY) – Found the missing piece of the puzzle.  Discovered the 1798 Will of Johann Adam Grasser which listed his children.  This critical information provided the missing link to connect the Grasser name to the Crosser name.  Don also provided extensive research on Jacob Grasser (one of Johann’s sons) and their descendants.  We are extremely appreciative of Don’s significant contributions.


Lane Crosser (KS) – Thank you for getting us started and all your great support along the way. While this is a paid service, it is an extremely affordable resource that has been invaluable in our research.  It is an efficient and effective way to do genealogical research.


York County Heritage Trust – We recommend that you become a member and visit the York County Heritage Trust.  This is the most organized historical society I have ever visisted and the staff members are wonderful.  It is very difficult to find pre 1850 information, and the YCHT has a significant amount of information on early York and Adams County Pennsylvania history.  For example, this is were Don found Johann’s 1798 Will.  Located at 250 E. Market St., York, PA 17403.  Phone 717-848-1587.  Or visit them at
