Upcoming Events

Our next meeting is May 21st at 1 p.m. at the Uniontown Library. Richard Cope will be talking about Vital Records in Pennsylvania. What are the vital records held by the government in Pennsylvania? When did they start keeping these records? Where can you find them?

Pennsylvania is not the easiest state to search for a birth, marriage or death. We’re not like Massachusetts with tons of town vital records. We’re not even as well off as Virginia and (West) Virginia where they instituted vital records in 1852. Pennsylvania came late to the game and you need to know what you can find and what might not be possible. Join us!

Everyone is welcome. Please join us at the Uniontown Library, 2nd floor, at 1 p.m.
