Volunteers from the area have kindly volunteered to help with inquiries and have left their contact information and area of interest.
Beth Caporali *
I have "Journal of Gabriel Adam Reichert" Part I, 1822-1825 by Paul Miller Ruff, available for look ups. Reichert was the Lutheran pastor in Indiana, Armstrong & adjacent counties from 1822-1837. Part I is mostly Indiana Co., and lists baptisms, weddings, funerals, and personal contacts. Beth now (2012) has the "Journal of Gabriel Adam Reichert" Part 2, 1826-1829, which I am happy to look things up in as well. Please have requests mention Indiana County as I do look-ups for several other counties as well.
I have an index to the 1870 Indiana County census and will do lookups as time allows. Info would include head of household, age, place of birth, township, roll and page number. I would also be willing to do lookups in the 1850 census (not just the index). Only ONE household per query please. I will also, for a reasonbale fee, search the Indiana County newspapers for marriage announcements or obituaries. Please contact me for further details.
Indiana County 175th Anniversary by Clarence D. Stepehenson, all 5 volumes, "In the Name of God Amen", The Early Wills of Indiana County, PA 1807-1820 Volume One and 1820-1829 Volume Two by Sonya M. Barclay.
Louise Belsby *
I have a copy of the Index to Indiana County, PA Wills, 1803 to 1900 compiled by Bob and Mary Closson. I would be happy to look-up names in the index. To get the wills, people have to write the courthouse in Indiana, PA.
Nikki Cravotta *
My name is Nikki Cravotta. I am the "genealogist" for the Blairsville Cemetery and have done extensive genealogy work for the past 15 years. I would ask that there be a limit of one free query per household. I do charge a modest fee for additional work, if needed.
People who have recently (2012) confirmed their interest in doing lookups, have an asterisk "*" after their names.
If any of you who are interested in Indiana County, are also willing to do lookups, please email me (Bill George) and I'll be glad to add you to this Lookup volunteer list. Thank you all, so much.
