Do you have records or data you would like to submit to the Washington County PAGenWeb?

My goal is to keep the Washington County PAGenWeb Site informative with updated materials at least monthly.  YOU can help me in achieving that goal !  

Send your ideas, transcriptions, compiled research, old photos and other genealogy data to me at "WashingtonCoPA Webmaster" <washington.co.pa.webmaster "AT" gmail.com>.  Please remember to include source information on your submission, as well as your name as you want it to appear on the website.  Source info includes title of item or type of record; author; publisher; city/state where published; date, page(s) -- as applicable.  For court or other records, include the location of record (name of courthouse; name of library) name of book (ex. Will Book), volume number, folder or other number, year or full date.  It is easiest to send plain text files, but I can work from Word Processing files also.

The Washington County PAGenWeb [the site you are using now] can use any records you might have, even if it is just on one surname, one family, or one individual.  Click here to go back to the main page of the Washington County PAGenWeb Genealogy Project.
