Korns related information from the 1899 book "Pennsylvania Archives", third series, is available below in JPG format. In some cases, relevant pages preceding actual Korns-related pages are included so that you can see what the topic of the subsequent Korns-related pages are. The identity of the Elizabeth Korn living in Chester County in 1767 is a mystery-it isn‘t known if she belongs to our Korns family. If you can shed light on this Elizibeth Korn, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Of particular interest is the Michael Korn individual listed in Albany Township, Berks County in 1784.
How to access the pages
File Format Discussion
The files linked below are provided in both PDF and raster (GIF or JPG) format, for the reader's convenience. PDF is generally preferred because of the convenience in zooming in and out, but you will have to have the free Acrobat Reader software on your computer in order to be able to view the PDF documents.
Depending on your internet browser software, the optional raster images may not display at an appropriate size for viewing over the internet. Some browsers allow you to zoom in and out on raster images for legibility, while others do not. If a raster image is illegible on your browser, try right-clicking on the image and downloading the file to your computer with the "save picture as" command. This will allow you to view the image using the alternate software of your choice. The size of each individual page is typically about 191 to 1100 KB. The reason that the file sizes are so large is because the images are photographs, the book being to old and fragile to photocopy.
