H-Net network on the history and culture of Pennsylvania.



H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.

As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.

Re: 18th Century Philadelphia Diaries

Digital collections (tagged across libraries or aggregated by vendors) would be more beneficial, copyright permitting. I found one I was seeking (Esther (Palmer) Champion) by searching an  Alexander St Press digital collection.  Interestingly, they were also found fulltext in Google Books.

18th Century Philadelphia Diaries


Does anyone know of or keep a bibliography of 18th-century Philadelphia area diaries? I'm thinking of both published and unpublished diaries (perhaps including common place books).  If there isn't such a list (and I'm not necessarily volunteering to make one), would that be helpful to researchers?

With thanks,
