"Reading an inventory is like rummaging through your grandmother's attic. You are filled with wonder and curiosity as you visualize these objects that no longer play an important part in our 'modern lives,' but once were depended upon for their survival." In addition to names and dates, the probate inventories of York County, Pennsylvania, provide a wealth of information about lifestyle and material culture. However, without an index, research can be time-consuming. This volume will be a valuable aid to anyone researching this area during this period. Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname of the deceased followed by date taken, and township. Some entries contain miscellaneous information such as spelling variations of the surname, occupation, name of spouse, or other items of interest.
