Welcome to Northeast Pennsylvania Biographies (Including Counties of Susquehanna, Wayne, Pike and Monroe)
We have obtained a copy of "Commemorative Biographical Record of Northeastern Pennsylvania including the counties of Susquehanna, Wayne, Pike and Monroe" containing biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens and many of the early settled families. This work was published by J. H. Beers & Co., Chicago, 1900 and consists of more than two thousand pages of local history and family history for many individuals. Additionally the work includes numerous portraits of some of the persons who were prominent citizens of the area. We have scanned many of these pages and include them for you use. In order that this work may be searchable, we have indexed these pages in accordance with the surnames listed on them.
