The children of Joseph Scharf who are not my direct line ancestors are all over on my Not Heather's Genealogy blog.  I try to keep just my direct ancestors on this blog, side lines go over here:\
If you go to Joseph's Page here:
I have linked each of his children to their page on my other blog.
Or you can go here, and see all of the Scharf posts on that blog:

I recently had the pleasure of spending an entire day with Howard Scharf.
He has comprehensive files on the Scharf line, and allowed me to copy and make notes. I'm in the process of uploading everything I accumulated that day.  If you have inquiries, or additions, not only would I love to hear from you ( htruck@gmail.com ) but I know Howard would love to hear from you as well.  He is not online, but you can reach him by snail mail.
