Pennsylvania Books Donated

Do you have ancestors in south central Pennsylvania? Bob Longbottom of Mogadore OH has donated a large collection of Pennsylvania works to the Ohio Genealogical Society. Many of these are newspaper abstracts and court records concentrated in the Bedford-Morrison Cove area. Many titles were compiled by historians James Boor, Frank Bayer, and others. There are many family histories. If you do a catalog search for "Longbottom Bedford County", 74 titles come up; and if you do a search for "Longbottom Blair County", there are 123 titles. Just doing a search for the donor "Longbottom" yields 213 new titles and we don't have them all catalogued yet. This is probably the best method if you wish to scan through all the new books from this donation.
