Index to the Probate Inventories of York County, Pennsylvania, 1749-1850, David A. Paup and Brenda L. Paup

1 Index to the Probate Inventories of York County, Pennsylvania, 1749-1850
David A. Paup and Brenda L. Paup
(1992), 2007, 5x8, paper, 168 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
"Reading an inventory is like rummaging through your grandmother's attic. You are filled with wonder and curiosity as you visualize these objects that no longer play an important part in our 'modern lives,' but once were depended upon for their survival." In addition to names and dates, the probate inventories of York County, Pennsylvania, provide a wealth of information about lifestyle and material culture. However, without an index, research can be time consuming. This volume will be a valuable aid to anyone researching this area during this period. Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname of the deceased followed by date taken, and township. Some entries contain miscellaneous information such as spelling variations of the surname, occupation, name of spouse, or other items of interest.

2 CD: Pennsylvania Divorces: Dauphin County ,1788-1867, York County, 1790-1860
Eugene F. Throop
2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat 6, PC and Mac, 191 pp, Heritage Books
Divorce records are a goldmine of information for family historians. "This compilation of Dauphin County and York County divorces is invaluable not only for those interested in the history and genealogy of this area, but many other locations as well. When a husband or wife left their mate, they often went quite a distance." Unfortunately, some information from early divorce records in these counties is either missing or illegible. Fortunately, the author has preserved the available information within this volume. Divorce records typically contain (as available): the date and place of marriage, any previous marriages, children, other family members named as witnesses, and "next friend" (in the case of women libeling [filing] for divorce). The compiler has grouped together the entries for each case; all records are arranged chronologically by date of original filing. A surname index augments the records.The book is presented as graphic images, so the user see the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a real book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent. The electronic bookmarks and check-marked information on the Welcome Page provide links to each book listed.
