Introduction
My sister Dana and I published the book "Descendants of Johann Adam Dietel of 19th Century Somerset County, Pennsylvania" in 1996, after several years of research. A modest number of copies were sold to the various family members we had connected with. The book was prepared on a Macintosh computer. Many years later I converted the old Macintosh files to PC files, and created the following pdf files to make the book more accessible. The conversion from from Mac to PC resulted in imperfect pagination and a few lost images.
