How to Search for Your Revolutionary Patriot in Pennsylvania
How to Search for Your Revolutionary Patriot in Pennsylvania
Our Price: $10.00

Dorothee Hughes Carousso (au)
There is a misconception that anyone who is interested in tracing his or her blood line to a Revolutionary patriot is interested only for the purpose of joining a hereditary patriotic society (HPS). One of the advantages of joining a HPS is that the established bloodline -- & the services of the patriot -- become a permanent record in the files of the HPS. This guide explains the 2 steps in the search for a Revolutionary patriot.

Robert LeConte Halberstadt (au); Dorothee Hughes Carousso (au)
The ever increasing interest in genealogy has brought many queries about joining one or more of the hereditary patriotic societies from people who discover that they might have some qualifying ancestors. Often prospective members are confused about administrative procedures for new candidates & what documentation is required to prove the lineage. The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania recommends certain standards for admittance procedure & genealogical documentation. (Philadelphia: Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, 1980)
Pennsylvania Militia in 1777
Pennsylvania Militia in 1777: A Reprint from “The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine,” Volume XXIII, Number 3
Our Price: $15.00


Hannah Benner Roach (au)
Reprint of an article in "The PA Genealogical Magazine" on the orgin of the PA militia, as established under the act passed 17 March 1777. Complete records pertaining to the militia have not survived. Those which have been published in the various series of the "Pennsylvania Archives" are, in many instances, incorrectly identified & arranged in a confused manner. Too often, as a result, the fact that a man's name appears in those records has been accepted as prima facie evidence that he was a patriot who served his country faithfully & diligently. The dual purpose of this study is to render intelligible the meaning of those records, & then to relate them to the actual operation of the militia, with particular reference to the first year of its operation under the act.

Abstracts the names of those whose wartime purchase of previously unsold Philadelphia County land helped fund the PA troops in the American Revolutionary army.

Pennsylvania Civil War Veteran Burials Volume I: Adams County, Perry County
Pennsylvania Civil War Veteran Burials: Volume I: Adams County, Perry County
Our Price: $20.00


Marion F. Egge (ed); James M. Beidler (pf)
The Civil War is a subject of increasing fascination by historians, genealogists, & the public, partly due to the ability of many Amer. to trace their roots to a vet. of the conflict. The Gen’l. Soc. of PA has embarked on a project to preserve & disseminate the records held by county depts. of vets’ affairs. These depts. hold records of the burials of vets for purposes of erection of monuments & placement of flags. For this vol., it is not claimed that the burials recorded by the county consist of every Civil War soldier, merely those on file at the county office. In addition, these are transcriptions of the records from the vets’ depts. & some errors may lie in those original records. Finally, more info. about the vets is filed at the Dept. of Vets Affairs than has been pub. in this vol. (Philadelphia: Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, 2000)

Military Petitions for Naturalization Filed in the Philadelphia {County} District Court 1862-1874
Our Price: $20.00


Jefferson M. Moak (ed)
In 1862, the U.S. gov’t., as a reward to the aliens who served in the Union forces during the Civil War, allowed these vets. to petition for citizenship after receiving an honorable discharge. The 5-yr. residency requirement was reduced to 1-yr. There were over 950 vets. who petitioned the Phila. [County] District Court between 1862 & 1874 using their military service to satisfy the requirements for citizenship. The 1862 fed. law restricted the use of military service only to those vets. of the land forces. However, the clerks in Phila. granted citizenship to many vets. of the U.S. Navy & Marine Corps. The fed. gov’t. did not grant non-army veterans the same rights until 1894. This index represents 15% of the total number of petitions filed in Phila. during this period.

Our Price: $20.00


Hannah Benner Roach (au); Jefferson M. Moak (ed)
That part of Philadelphia known today as Chestnut Hill, & in the early 18th century as “the hindermost part” or the “back part” of Germantown Township, includes within its boundaries the divisions of Sommerhausen & Crefeld, which formed the northernmost section of the original German township as laid out in 1684. It was 20 years or more after the first settlement in the lower part of the township before permanent improvements were established in Sommerhausen & Crefeld. This local history includes numerous mentions of individuals, families & events in this community during the 18th century. Here is a genealogical sketch of the Michael Schutz family of Chestnut Hill using the entire community as backdrop. Maps. (Philadelphia: Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, 2001)
