Ethnic Groups

Various ethnic groups have contributed to the rich heritage of Danville and Montour County.  We at Montour County Genealogical Society have begun to accumulate resources related to some of those groups.  Although previously listed separately, the Jewish Community and the Welsh Connection are now accessible from this page.  We're working on developing collections of resources related to the Irish, Slovak and German groups.  Suggestions and contributions are welcome.  For ideas, please refer to the Jewish and Welsh pages which were made possible through the generous contributions of interested researchers.  The ethnic groups listed below are linked to their respective pages.

    The Germans in Montour County & the Susquehanna Valley



 The Jewish Community


The Slovaks in Montour County


The Welsh Connection
