Those Places Thursday ------------ Greene County, Pennsylvania

Have you visited this place?  Are you aware of what they have for your researching needs?

Do you share with the distant kin of your family that are on Greene Connections on the Facebook page?  We are swapping pictures of our people of the past.

Do you know the history of this region? It belonged to Virginia at one time.  Many historical events happened within it's boundaries.

Starting you off with an excellent map of the area, region by region.
Greene County Pennsylvania Township Map
Each township is well shown with water and oil wells. It seems that they have struck oil again.

One of my ancestors was born in Morris Township, at least he lived there when his father died.
They moved to other areas over the years. Aleppo, Springhill,  almost every township in the county.
 Whether I follow my direct line back or follow his children's movements or his siblings movements they covered the region quite well.

Since a plethora of our ancestors sprang out of this county, I am sure I could research each township for kin.

But first I will share with you some links you may find interesting to read and research.

Cornerstone Genealogy Society
The local genealogical society that I have belonged to for more than 20 years. They are dedicated and helpful and a true asset to Greene County.

Greene County Historical Society Museum
Then we have the Historical society that shows you many of the artifacts that our ancestors used and had while they were alive in Greene County.

Mix pleasure with research and try this one also.
Greene County Tourism

I had to find my ancestors bridge he built and the house and church he built with others help. Covered bridges, cemeteries and the awesome scenery.
