Editor’s Pick: Learn Insider Secrets for Pennsylvania Genealogy

By Diane Haddad

Maybe you’ve done some basic research on your Pennsylvania ancestors in censuses and vital records. But where should you and your genealogy research turn next?

Find out from our Secrets to Beat Your Pennsylvania Brick Walls webinar with veteran Pennsylvania genealogist Lisa A. Alzo. It’s happening Thursday, July 9, at 7 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Central, 5 p.m. Mountain, 4 p.m. Pacific).

Among other resources, she’ll introduce you to the Pennsylvania Archives—and by that I mean both the Pennsylvania State Archives and the Pennsylvania Archives series. The latter is 138-volumes of published records including early government correspondence; tax lists; and church, land, and military records, and it’s free on

Participants in the Secrets to Beat Your Pennsylvania Brick Walls webinar also receive:

  • a quick Pennsylvania vital records review
  • strategies for exploring military records for your Pennsylvania ancestors
  • tips for researching in court and tax records
  • information on other state-specific resources that can help you break through research brick walls
  • the opportunity to submit Pennsylvania genealogy questions before the event (via a form when you register for the webinar) and again during the webinar’s live Q&A session
  • access to view the webinar recording again as often as desired
  • a PDF handout of the presentation slides
  • a PDF handout of our Pennsylvania Brick Walls e-book.
