Locate Archival Materials

To locate Pennsylvania archives, county historical societies, or museums that may contain primary source material on your topic, run Google searches.  I'd try for the county you're interested in AND "historical society". 

Run several different permutations of your search:

  • "Lancaster County" AND archives
  • "Lancaster County" AND museums  

Societies, Museums, Libraries
