Hi folks,
I have posted some Westmoreland County PA research resources for ELDER here:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~nancyelder/WestmorelandCoPA.htm

Some of them are the ROBERT ELDER
group, some need more research to
connect.

Let me know if you see familiar
locations and people there.
NancyP
