Genealogical friends will want to know of Charles Hall's recent passing. He was particularly involved in German-American genealogy and a friend to all. He authored 10 books to help genealogists in the German and Prussian areas. He also founded two genealogical societies: Palatines to America and the Federation of Eastern European Family History Societies.
