* HEFFLEY family of Somerset, Pennsylvania, and relatives.*

Updated April 21, 2008

10/01/2004 My name is Robert Studeny Heffley, born in Johnstown, Cambria County, PA. This is the result of my research about my ancestors and their relatives. The major surnames of my relatives include Heffley, Hefley, Haffelee, Studeny, Philson, Pritts, Haberkorn, Knepper, Poorbaugh, Blume, Bloom, McCloskey, and Ilgenfritz.

Almost all of my ancestors back to the 4th great grandparents were from Germany and they settled mostly in Somerset and Cambria Counties, PA. My ancestors have been traced to 1524 (12 generations). I have no info beyond Johannes Carl Haffelee, born about 1715 in Eggenstein, Germany and Mr. Ilgenfritz, born about 1524, in Oberwornitz, Middle Franconia, Germany.

The major surnames on my spouse's side include Patik, Durbala, Hasso, Mettler, Lukac, Makovic, Rohac, and Rohal.

My spouse's fraternal ancestors are from Poland and settled in Iowa. Her maternal ancestors are from Scotland and England and settled in Mass. and Calif.

Please let me know if you have any ideas about researching these relatives in Europe and please contact me if you can add to or correct any of my info or wish any info from me. Bob Heffley (from Johnstown, PA).

I will continue to update this site.

If you do not want to be on my mailing list, please let me know.

10/08/2004. I have been advised by several folks to not put my GEDCOM on this site because some people download it and use it as their own. So, if anyone wants this info, please contact me and I will send appropriate info to you.

10/21/2004 Our son got married last week. I added some photos.

July 2005 Added photos from our vacation in Vienna and Switzerland.

June 24, 2007 - added a photo of a new Heffley at his baptism. He was born April 19, 2007 to Molly and Brian Heffley, our son.

July 23, 2007 - removed some photos and some text that shows maiden names, etc. because of people who might be using this info and photos for various scams. (Sad but true).
