Union County was created from Northumberland County on 22 March 1813.

Welcome to the Union County PAGenWeb Project.


The purpose of this site is to provide tools for the genealogist and family historian researching primary and secondary documentary materials. These tools include necessary historical and geographical background material needed for research, as well as respositories and the kinds of primary and secondary resource materials that are available.


While the Internet provides much material for research, it must be remembered that all transcribed material, whether on the Internet or published, is secondary source material, statistically more prone to error than primary materials. The Internet, and this site, has limitations for proper researching and documentation of genealogical research. For further information about how to use the Internet for accurate research, consult the National Genealogical Society's Standards For Use Of Technology In Genealogical Research.

Finding Source Material

Because the focus of this site is limited, the researcher will find transcriptions and other secondary resource materials in the Union County PAGenWeb Archives, part of the USGenWeb and PAGenWeb projects. Materials transcribed and available elsewhere on the Internet are listed on the Links page.
