Index of Part II Biographical Sketches from the History of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania


The History of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, Ed. by H.C. Bradsby, publ. in 1893, contains about 800 pages of biographical sketches which provided details about subjects profiled and their relations. The original index is very poor. This book is an every-name index of persons mention in the Biographical Sketches. It also contains, when mentioned in the Sketches, the year of birth, year of death, and the names of the parents. And, where the compiler had supplemental information from other sources, that, too, has been included. This book may be the closest thing available to missing 1890 U.S. Census records and will be useful to the researcher whether or not they have a copy of the History of Luzerne County.
