An essential reference to have for someone like myself who has at least three quarters of family tree branches going back into Pennsylvania in the 1700 and early 1800's and living 50 miles or more from a library with substantial genealogy reference holdings.

Extensive book on history of Pennsylvania land transfers to the public domain. Excellent for those looking for initial transfers from English or Commonwealth to the early pioneers. Describes the mechanism for transfers, County development, and westword acquisitions.

Very helpfull when using the land records of the Pennsylvania Archives, both online and on file in Harrisburg.
