Pennsylvania Family History

Here are recommendations for Pennsylvania family history resources:

  1. Pennsylvania State Archives
    An index to various Pennsylvania state military records, including the Civil War, National Guard, and World War I.
  2. Pennsylvania Volunteers of the Civil War
    Links to free searchable databases of the 5-volume Civil War set by Samuel Bates.
  3. PA cities or towns (see below).
  4. Pennsylvania genealogy tools on eBay.

The following are live auctions. Click on any of the links for more information.

If there are no listings above, it could be a bug in the program. I recommend clicking over and searching for "Pennsylvania family history" or "PA family history" or "Pennsylvania Irish genealogy" or "Pennsylvania English family genealogy" or whatever suits your fancy. You might be surprised at what you find. The variety of geneology tools being sold every day on eBay is amazing.

If there's still nothing, your best bet is to contact your local public library, or used book stores.

Have Fun!

P.S. If you're new to eBay, here are some tips. The first thing you'll need to do is register. This is free and easy. You'll have to provide some basic contact information, but that will be kept completely private.

Before you bid on an item I highly recommend checking the seller's "feedback rating." This gives you an indication of how the seller has treated other buyers. Almost everybody ends up with a negative review here and there, but too many is a bad sign. Read the negative comments and decide for yourself.

Also be sure to check the shipping and payment details. Some unscrupulous sellers charge too much for shipping and handling.
