I spend about 90% of time researching in Pennsylvania, and I thought I knew most research tips and tricks. This series featuring Alice Childs has proven me wrong! I continue to learn new research strategies. For example, I have frequently used Pennsylvania land warrants and patents from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission to find the warrant and survey maps, but this podcast episode made me realize I was missing the actual patent document! This for this great series!
Thanks for the comment! We’re so glad you’ve enjoyed the series.
