Work on updating this site began 20 July 2012. Please e-mail Tom Yoset if you have comments, requests, specific questions, or suggestions for additions. Thank you.
Page revised to add links to other every-name indexes. Sketches from the cited sources will be added upon request.
A rudimentary guide to cemetery locations, indexes, etc., has been started. Additions and corrections would be welcomed.
The 1840 U.S. Census of Pensioners, the 1870 U.S. Census mortality schedules (completing all of the federal mortality schedules), and the 1800 PA Septennial Census (the only one available for Crawford County) have been added; some work on indexing continues.
A link to free, on-line images of county probate records (Will Books, Registers Dockets, Orphans Court Dockets, etd.) has been added. Work on transcribing the earliest tax duplicates and all nineteenth century divorce cases continues (the latter completed through 1878). Abstracts of Court of Quarter Sessions records (1800-1887) may be added. County adoptions from 1890 to 1900 have been added, and the compilation is currently being extended to 1925, after which year the records are sealed.
City and all township skeches appearing in the 1871-72 county directory, and county and all township sketches appearing in the 1874 county gazetteer have now been added, along with every-name indexes appearing nowhere else. Sketches from an 1832 state gazetteer have also been added. A composite index is being prepared.
Opened in January 2013, with a concentration on resident Revolutionary War veterans.
This section is being developed as a listing of geographical places, together with links to any pages dealing specifically with each place included.
The Topical Index to Crawford County Genealogy, the journal of the Crawford County Genealogical Society, has been updated with available issues.
Additional Meadville death records may eventually be added.
