William

Last Saturday, the Collective Memory Project team traveled to Mertztown, on the outskirts of the Lehigh Valley to meet with William Harvey, a descendant of Pennsylvania German settlers.  The interview was conducted by his grandson, Matthew Sicher in English and the PA German dialect.  William spoke about how his family came to the Lehigh Valley, about their typical food, his family values and his experience working as a soldier in the army. He was clear about his respect for other cultures who also came to settle here.  Check him out, seen here with his great-grandson, granddaughter-in-law and grandson!
