Genealogies, local histories, maps, censuses, newspapers, periodicals, and city directories are at the state library. Of particular use is the Genealogical Surname Index, about which see Janice B. Newman in 'Genealogical Research at the State Library of Pennsylvania,' Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine 35 (1988): 199-212. Also to be consulted is A Guide to the Genealogy/Local History Section of the State Library of Pennsylvania (Harrisburg, Pa.: State Library of Pennsylvania, 1989).
