The Family Report provides a comprehensive (but not exhaustive) set of data about one particular family that was available at the time of compilation. They are useful to the researcher who wants to get a broad overview of a particular family’s presence in York County. Researchers who need additional information about only one individual would probably find the Genealogy Request more helpful.
The Historical Society of York County, now the York County History Center, compiled Family Reports on over 500 families in the 1920s through the 1950s. Abstractions were made from church records, wills, bonds, orphans court dockets, deeds, mortgages, and numerous other sources. Reports vary in the types of items abstracted. Many years have passed, and numerous church records and other sources have been added to the genealogy collection, but they have not been added to these reports.
Family Reports can be photocopied in their entirety for personal use only. The fee is a $15.00 minimum research fee, plus a charge of $.50 per page. To process your request efficiently, number of pages must be entered. Enter the surname you are looking for in the search box above. If your first attempt is unsuccessful, please try another variation of the spelling. If a Family Report is available, complete the Research Request Order Form on the results page or to the left of this screen. Please be sure to indicate the appropriate volume and page total for the desired Family Report (the search results include this information). Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for processing.
