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, and the list of adoptions is being extended from 1900 to 1925 (after which the papers are sealed). Abstracts of Court of Quarter Sessions records (1800-1887) may be added.
Sketches of cities from the 1869 Directory of the Oil Regions, and boroughs from the 1871-72 county directory, have been added, along with an every-name index to these sketches. Township sketches appearing in the 1874 gazetteer are being added; an every-name index to the sketches (available nowhere else) is also being compiled.
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.
