202312jan1:00 pm3:00 pmFour Collections in Archives That Could Complete Your Family History by Denys Allen - in Person and via Zoom


Event Details

Pennsylvania has collections in private and government archives that will likely never be digitized and made available online. Learn which ones are most useful to genealogists in answering questions of parentage, occupation, and circumstances.

Denys tells us:
“I created PA Ancestors in 2019 to take everything I learned and help as many people as possible discover their ancestors in Pennsylvania. I’ve created what I wish I had when I started my research on my ancestors.”

“My life’s goal is to understand everything I can about my seven generations of ancestors who called Pennsylvania home. I’m curious and daring, and I go on adventures to find new genealogy records. I will be your guide and coach and help you discover everything possible on your ancestors.
Everything I publish here or on my YouTube channel is based on hundreds of hours of independent research and study. I also take courses with people I consider top of their field. Here is a list of recent programs I’ve completed:
