From the noted author of his time, I.D. Rupp, comes the reprint of his important work covering south central Pennsylvania. These counties were officially created around the 1780's but settlers started arriving in the area around the 1730's. Early immigrants were of German and Scotch-Irish descents with some Amish being sprinkled in. There is much genealogical information to be found interspersed throughout this book. A new Index has been completed for this reprint with approximately 12,000 entries.
