Preserve the Early Lancaster County Probate Records
LLCGS plans to preserve the early Lancaster County probate records through a digitization program.  We have twenty-seven boxes of probate packets in our archive. Unfortunately, they are getting very brittle and we need to preserve them digitally before they disintegrate. We are lucky that we also have considerable indexing to them. These are an invaluable genealogical resource for Lancaster County. The Society is seeking contributions to the Give to Lincoln Day to make this project possible.
