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.

To submit them now, simply scroll down to the "Write New Discussion Post" link on this page. Enter your post in the field that pops up, add a few tags (or "keywords"), and click "Review" at the bottom of the page. Everything look OK? Then click "Submit to Editor" at the bottom of the review page and that's it! And there's a more elaborate version of these instructions here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/905/pages/977/submit-discussion-post.

Re: Archives of Pennsylvania Resource

This is a great resource. Thanks for putting this list together. However, I feel that Western Pennsylvania is a bit underrepresented in the list. To add to the County History section, the following historical societies all have small, but exceedingly useful archives which have proven indispensable in my research. 

Jefferson County History Center: http://www.jchconline.org/

Clarion County Historical Society: http://www.clarioncountyhistoricalsociety.org/

Re: Archives of Pennsylvania Resource

Could you please add the Jacobsburg Historical Society (http://www.jacobsburghistory.com/) to the list of Local Historical Societies? JHS has substantial archival resources (Finding Guide available on its website), an 1832 house museum, an Early American Crafts Education Center, and a museum that interprets the history of the longrifle.
