Early Campbell Docs on FamilySearch
Posted by: Kevin Campbell (ID *****2381) Date: July 14, 2012 at 07:01:25

Earlier this week there was a post on a mailing list ….

I wanted to let everyone know that FamilySearch recently added a very large collection of PA probate record images to their new website. The collection includes wills, orphans' court records, estate files, and several other types of records. It is organized by county, and each county has a different types of records and dates of coverage. The collection is not searchable, so to access the records you have to browse through page
by page.

Here is a link to the collection:

I’ve been looking around for early Campbell material and have found these references for Indiana County:
