About this index:

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has done much work
studying Amish families. Many years ago, Dr. Harold E. Cross of the
Medical School, Division of Medical Genetics, and Beulah Hostetler then
of Willow Grove, Pa. published an "Index to Selected Amish Genealogies".
This index was produced by going through 118 individual Amish related
genealogies and indexing each person contained therein to the involved
genealogy. Several years ago, we received permission to display the Yoder
data from Johns Hopkins. The volume of data and the technical solution to
working with hard copy only source delayed our presentation of this
information until now.

The YNL does not have the specific Genealogies at hand. To find them
you'll need to check with one of the major libraries which contain
significant Anabaptist genealogical data...Like the Mennonite Historical
Library, Goshen College, or others.
