Excellent Tool for Genealogy
This is an excellent tool for anyone who is interested in early American History, or who needs to research a Patriot ancestor, who served during the American Revolution in Pennsylvania. For example, by my knowing that my eighth Great Grandfather was from Bedford (now Somerset) County, Pennsylvania and had served, along with the ability to search for text within the book I discovered that along with being a Lt. Col, he was also the first Judge to serve beyond the Alleghany Mountains, and that he was present at the seige of Boston, and that he fought at the Battle of Germantown and was present at Cornwallis' surrender at Yorktown. I highly recommend this important set of records.
