Regina Christman Martin and Darvin L. Martin, Two Ober/Over Families on the Pennsylvania Frontier, Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage 25, no. 4 (Oct. 2002): 21-36, provides the best summary of this family. Since at least 2006, there has been a database at WorldConnect on Rootsweb, under the same title with Mrs. Martin as the contact, which contains additions to the 2002 article. The entry page is at <http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=over&I11.x=0&I11.y=0>. Researchers must turn to the printed article for most of the documentation, however, and not all of the spouse identifications are accurate.
