Welcome to the Berks County PAGenWeb site. This site is part of the USGenWeb Project. My name is Jane Unger, and I am the County Coordinator.
I would like to remind everyone that this site is a "secondary" resource for genealogical information. The information posted here has been transcribed--sometimes more than once. Also, some of the records that have been transcribed are secondary sources. Information that you find here should be used to provide leads and not as proof or fact.
There are many transcriptions of early records on the site. Although you can search for the surnames you are researching, you might want to browse through the records because of the spelling variations that are so common in early genealogical records.
If you would like to transcribe Berks County records, please let me know. I am trying to get early tax records that were published in the Pennsylvania Archives posted to the site. There are also other items, such as biographies and old books that I'd like to get transcribed for the site. Generally, I'll take submissions in text format (Notepad), Microsoft Word or Word-compatible files, Microsoft Excel or Excel-compatible files. I'll list you as the submitter for any transcriptions that you provide.
If you have information that you would like to share, such as vital records, census records, cemetery records, or anything else, please send me your submissions. For text submissions, I prefer either text format or Word format, but I can convert many other formats. For images, I prefer either GIF format or JPG format. If you aren't sure whether I will accept the submission, please drop me a note and ask.
In addition, if you know of any links that I should include on this site, please let me know.
I am open to any suggestions about how I can improve the site, about the information that is posted on the site, or about anything else. So, please send your suggestions and comments to me.
If you have questions about ancestors or where to look for records, you can join the Berks County mailing list, a mailing list for anyone interested in the history and genealogy of Berks County, Pennsylvania, and its surrounding region. There are many knowledgeable people on this list who can help you get answers to questions related to Berks County genealogy. It is easy to join.
