Local History

It helps the process of researching our Ancestors when we have a general idea of where they are located.  Sometimes there will be an article that will contain information on a particular individual.  And at other times, some sort of picture will help to connect the puzzles together.  Below you will find such information that has been submitted us. 

If you have a listing you would like to submit contact the Bucks County Coordinator below.
