Program: Researching Family Homesteads

Eva Beidler is a genealogist who enjoys putting her “boots on the ground”, heading out on local highways and byways to locate farms and homesteads where her ancestors lived. In this program, she will discuss how she was inspired to research family history and what she learned in visiting home places of the Beidler, Landis and Bower families in Bucks and Montgomery counties.

Eva is an art therapist with a graduate degree from George Washington University. She has also shown and sold her own work extensively. She is a daughter of the late Stanley and Ethel Beidler. Her father was bishop and pastor at Haycock Mennonite Church. Eva is married to John Swarr and they have two grown children. They are longtime residents of the Washington DC metro area.
