"What's New"
The Pennsylvania=German Society
The above Society has a huge selection of their publications which were published:
"Distinguished Annual Volume Series, published regularly since 1891, on various aspects of the Pennsylvania German culture."

A great many of them have been digitzed and can be found on both the Archive.org site and the Family Search Catalog.

I was interested enough in them to download a slew of them and go through them for bits of Historical and Genealogical information for my three PA Counties:
Allegheny, Somerset and Westmoreland.

I found Biographical Sketches and 'In Memoriam' articles which, considering the wide time frame for the Publications, might be of interest to Family History Researchers. I also found a nice Chapter on 'The Amish' beginnings in Pennsylvania and a Chapter on Fort Allen.

So, I created two pages of information with links to the actual digital pages.
Each parsed out section is a searchable pdf file so you can find the person of interest quickly.

I was not able to find all of the Volumes, I hope to continue to search for them as they are chock full of great historical information.
Please use this link for the file which will, in turn give you a link to any particular article or person of interest.

USGenWeb® Archives Access: Tables of Contents
