Many thanks to Jack McNatt for contributing this very
useful bibliography. Some resources for locating the works listed below can be
found on our libraries page. --- updated October
The following is a bibliography of all of the books, booklets and pamphlets pertaining to history or family genealogy that I could find with an emphasis on Washington County, Pennsylvania.
If you know of or have a book that is not included here, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org . The information I need is title, author, publisher, place published, year published, whether hard or soft cover and number of pages. A short description of the information available would also be helpful. Also, if you can supply any of this information that is missing on the following list I would be most appreciative.
Many of these books are available at the Citizen’s library in Washington or in other regional libraries. Some can also be located on one of the many booksearch sites on the internet. I prefer the used book section of www.addall.com which searches many of these sites for you. If you are unable to locate a book you are looking for, I would be happy to try and steer you in the right direction.
I hope you find this list of some help in your research. Jack W. McNatt
