Laura Beachy Somerset PA.

Laura Beachy grew up in Somerset, Pa., seven miles from Shanksville, where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed. When her sixth-grade teacher turned on the television, Beachy, then 11, couldn’t believe the images were real. Her teacher broke down, evidence that they were. She remembers the early days, when people in Somerset County opened their homes, cooked dinners and held candles for the families of Flight 93. She remembers later years, when community leaders and politicians debated how to memorialize the site and the memories. “You will do anything for your neighbor,” said Beachy, 21, when asked what she remembers as an 11-year-old kid. “Even if you don’t know your neighbor.” Click for article By Teri Weaver / The Post Standard September 10, 2011,

Sheldon Beachy Homer Alaska

Sheldon Beachy of Beachy Construction also was surprised at the number of projects in which his company is involved this year.
"It started out a little slower, but right now we're almost swamped. We're pretty busy," said Beachy. The work he and his crew of eight to 10 employees are doing range from a smaller three-bedroom, two-bath home to a couple of 4,500-square-foot homes for retirees moving to Homer to a large remodel job that will be a 15,000-square-foot combined residence and bed and breakfast. "We're not complaining," said Beachy of the workload. Click for article McKibben Jackinsky, Homer News, Michael Armstrong, Homer News.

Genealogy Scrolls by Glen Beachy

The scroll is a method of recording family trees in a way that is easy to read, easy to store, and easy to trace a family line back for many generations. Not just the ancestors but descendents as well. With extra space below the descendents to write in names as they marry and the children's names as they are born. Most scrolls are 24 inches tall for 10 generations of ancestors. For 11 generations of ancestors and 3 generations of descendents it may be 36 inches tall. The largest scroll made so far is 24 inches tall and 23 feet long. Even this length is still user friendly. If you have any questions or to order contact editor of this site.
