Hi all,

It's been a busy 10 days since our last update.  The following has recently been added.

Photos of the tombstones found at the Shippinville Methodist Cemetery in Shippinville, Clarion County. (contributed by your's truly). 

Carol just finished entering Cemetery Records for the Edgewood Cemetery and "Old Saltsburg," ("Old Presbyterian Graveyard"), Saltsburg, Indiana County.

A transcription of the book, "Danville, Montour County Pennsylvania" has been started.  You will find the transcription here.   

Kathryn has been busy entering Marriage Records from Beaver County. There is now over 2,000 of them posted.

Martha has been busy entering extracts from early Lancaster County Wills. 

 There is a lot of transcription projects in the works.  The primary limiting factor is the need for transcribers.  If you'd be able to help, please contact Carol.

Enjoy!
