History relating to the Korns family, Somerset Co., PA, & the region

This website covers historical and genealogical topics pertaining to Somerset County, Pennsylvania and the surrounding region that interest me. It is not a fancy website, but it is content-rich. There is a massive amount of difficult-to-organize material. I recommend using the search tool to find material on topics you are looking for.

You may also want to scan through the master index. Despite its name, however, the master index is by no means a comprehensive index of every page on this website. There are just too many drill-down pages to make a true master index practicable. For example, some of the pages identified by the master index contain links to more than a hundred drill down pages.

Neither me nor this website will be around forever, so I recommend that you save copies of things that interest you.
