First of all, good job. You have done exactly what you said you would do, and have done it well. You have provided me a platform for moving to the next investigative step.

Wow, very nice report which I thank you for sending. It is very well put together and very readable and understandable. This will add very nicely to our records here in Washington County.
— Laura Walker of Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Greg's knowledge of the history of Pennsylvania German barns is extraordinary. His dedication to documenting and preserving them is exemplary. His barn reports are useful and interesting. I'm so glad we asked him to help us understand the construction and history of our barn.
