Pennsylvania Search Links
Genealogy, History, Agencies and More

Don't pass by the scads of info on the net about PA genealogy! It's easy to think it is not in your search league, but look again: Many sites offer you county specific info, have message boards and mailing lists, and allow you to do surname queries (last name look-ups). Many pages also offer legwork in a given area, some free, some for a fee. Most people in the genealogy sector have been very helpful to adoption searches and understand that it's tough to do your family tree with sealed records. Depending on the info you have, you could find some really good sources here.
