Today comes word of a new roll out at Ancestry.com.
U.S., County and Regional Histories and Atlases, 1804-1984This database contains more than 2,200 volumes of county and regional histories from eight states: California, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The database is available for browse only.
Though the collection is "browsable" only, you can drill down to the state level using the drop-down menu:
You then receive a list of titles to narrow your search. This is the top of the scrollable list for Pennsylvania county and regional histories.
We tend to think of searching at Ancestry by name, when honestly most of our research should be locality specific. Thank-you to Ancestry.com for making this valuable collection available.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
