My father’s cousin married the son of the owner the following camps in Greeley, PA:  Pine Forest, Timber Tops  and Lake Owego!  (five generations later, it is still run by the family)

My parents owned a Jewish summer camp, Camp Todd Lake and Janel, from 1939 to 1941. I have a camp yearbook from 1939 but I didn't know the camp's location. With a lot of luck and the kindness of someone in the Honesdale Office of Deeds, I was able to find it. It was near Equinunk, Pennsylvania. The location is still a summer camp, Camp IHC, and I was able to visit the site a few years ago. Solving the mystery of the camp's location will always be my best genealogy find.
