Did your ancestors mine coal?  Here is a collection of maps.

PENNSYLVANIA NEWSPAPERS

ALLEGHENY COUNTY CEMETERY MAPS

ALLEGHENY COUNTY CEMETERY MAPS

I have often wish I had a map of some cemetery and now I have found the blog posting.   You can look for your ancestor.  If you find a memorial on Find A Grave it may give the plot number, so you can get an idea of where they are buried.

FORGOTTEN BOOKS

FORGOTTEN BOOKS

Found this link this morning, these books look like they have run out of copy-write.  Put in the key words and see if you can find anything related to your search or family.   I found a lot about Huntingdon County PA, had to book mark it to read later.

DD214

WORLD WAR II SERVICE RECORDS

   Looking for your ancestors World War Service Records?  This may help, the DD214 should have been registered with the home county.  There was also a fire in St. Louis at the archives where the were kept so they may be missing.
