Comments: I was trying to see if the Biographical Sketches and Commemorative History for this county has been transcribed on line like some other counties have done. I couldn't find it. I hope some day it will be. I am trying to locate information on the Rankin family in these as follows:History of Centre County (1883) page 222, and Commemorative Biographical Sketches...Centre Co page 100-101. If anyone has access to these I would greatly appreciate a scanned or transcribed copy of the information.

Comments: Greetings: It is good to have access to a Centre County website. I have spent several weeks in Centre County at your wonderful library and researched my husband's family. He is a descendant of Christopher through Christopher I, Christopher II, John, George, Daniel, John, and he is Frank E. We have two sons and three grandsons to carry on the name. I am 83 years old, my husband is somewhat of an invalid and we spend a quiet life. Would you like to have a copy of his genealogy? Please let me know where to send it or how I may attach it? You may use it any way you wish. Thanks again for the interest you have in family history and genealogy. Mary Jane Armstrong Henney genealady @aol.com. p.s. I write about local history and had my fourth book accepted for publication this week.  --------------------------------------------------

Comments: Bob, I am a lookup volunteer and have sent you several e-mails trying to change my e-mail address. But, I continue to receive the queries at my old address. Once that address is deleted by my old ISP, I will not receive those messages. You need to either change my address on the lookup page or delete me from the volunteer list. I have not found a way to change it myself within the site or I would have done so. Thank you.


NOTE: Sorry about that. This has been corrected.--Bob  --------------------------------------------------
