    What a great resource! Now how does it work because I think I’m doing it wrong? I click on where it says Amish State Guide, and then I click on a state but it says “post not found” or something. Can we read about each particular state and where in that state they are? By the way, the picture at the heading is beautiful. :)

    Thanks Beth! Yes you are right there is info on the various settlements in each state.

    To access a state, you actually don’t click on the map itself, but on the blue underlined links in the long states list below the map (most state names are in black text right now, because only a few are available at present). Let me know if that doesn’t work for you.

    Right now there are just 5 available (MI NC TN OH NY) but more coming soon.

    Erik, I love it!!!…thanks so much for listening to your readers..we do appreciate all you do for this site. I’m so excited, and thinking of planning a trip to some other amish areas, now. I love Tennessee and the smokey mountains, but I just might take a tour of the amish areas now. The Ontario Canadian amish/mennonite area is very beautiful, if you every get a chance to visit. St.Jacob’s and the surrounding areas are very peaceful, and the people are lovely. Thanks again. Marie B, Windsor Ontario Canada

    Hi Karen, did you get it to work? I checked them all again and all seem fine.

    If you click on the state abbreviations in my note on the ASG page (OH, MI, etc), those are just ‘jump-links’ that jump you down the page to the place where the actual link is. Then you just click the link that says “Ohio Amish”.

    Sorry if it is confusing! Appreciate the feedback!

    Marie, thank you! My pleasure, and I do appreciate hearing what people think on it. We may need to consult with you for some local knowledge when I get the “Canada Amish” entry up!

    Thanks Bill! Yes, expect to see new states every 1-2 weeks. It will take a good bit of work and time to do them all justice but ought to be nice to have it all in one place.

    there was a very small amish community which was started in uvalda GA in the 1990s. those folks were from tenn. i went there just before the last familys went back to tenn. they were mostly farmers, land was pretty cheap at that time over there. i was trying to set something up with a amish family to make some items for me, i was looking for amish wood workers who were closer to florida, because i was getting items pretty far, and the shipping cost were killing me. the community itself was very raw, and i did get a feeling that some would be interested in starting wood shops to sell to the public. sadly for the amish there, it never had a chance to get to that point. it showed me that most can not make it on farming alone, and that you must have other ways to bring income to the amish household like the amish in penn, ohio and other tourist areas…….. richard

    Erik, I do some business with the “Community” up here in SW Ontario, Canada. I would be very interested to hear more about the State guide you’re putting together for the Province :P. I have bits and pieces of information I’ve been gathering with regards to my business with them that might augment your info. I am keen to better understand the different groups that exist up here (David Martin, Old Order, Mexican Menno, etc). If you have any links telling me more about the history of these groups, it would be appreciated.

    Josh, sounds great, if you have a moment maybe drop me an email at ewesner( at )gmail.com. Thanks!

    There are some articles on some Amish groups at the Amish Online Encyclopedia link you’ll find at the top of the page. That is a work in progress but hopefully you’ll find something useful there.
