Amish and Amish/Mennonite Genealogies:
Ezra Eby Revived! - "In 1895-1896, Ezra E. Eby published A BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF WATERLOO TOWNSHIP... a genealogical sketch of early Waterloo County pioneers along with their ancestors and descendants. To those who descend from the mostly Mennonite, or Pennsylvania Dutch families found in the "Ebybook", Eby's work is a primary source of information. EZRA EBY REVIVED! continues the legacy Ezra Eby left by combining his work with descendants found in dozens of family histories published since. Anyone descended from any of the approximately 140 families found in the Ebybook are invited to submit further updates, as well as corrections, to complete their family data to the present time." - quoted from the website
