In Reply to: PA Ace research help for a "beginer"- me! by Kimberly French of 113

As a PA researcher who lives far from PA I couldn't resist responding to your request. I was the newcomer once and someone helped me so I try to pass it on now and then.

I found your Samuel and Mary E Heller Ace on the 1880 census for Pocono, Monroe PA. Robert's siblings Atie, Howard and Sarah are also listed and his grandmother Sarah Heller and aunt Susan Heller are living in the household. You can access this census and take a screen shot from the following address or if you have gen software download the info:

I searched using (First name)Samuel (Last name)Ace (event) birth) (year range) +or-2 years (year) 1840.

Then you will find the census.

If you go back to the Bucks County Hellers, you might find some info at these addresses.

The World connect trees at rootsweb has some of your family. Search for Simon Ace and look at the kin1 database. They seem to have the best documentation:

Final words of advice try google searches using your family names in quotes and then location. Found death records for Simon and Margaret at Zion Lutheran Church by a google search using "Simon Ace" monroe pa.

Hope this helps some, have fun and when you get good at this stuff pass it on and help another newbie..
