Over the course of centuries towns come and go, but their people and histories remain.  This site is devoted to finding that information and making it available to researchers.  If you would like to donate the story of a family that lived in any such town in Pennsylvania, please feel free to contact me.  I am also looking for volunteer's to do look-ups in each county, if you are interested let me know.
