Paul et al,

One of the members of this list has written a book on the history of
the Diocese of Pittsburgh.

I found this local history book and thought some of you listers might
find it of interest. The book covers from 1754 to the present. You
can find further information at:


Arcadia is the company that has been publishing neighborhood and
community history books for the last few years. I have a copy for
almost every neighborhood in the South Hills where family lived at
one time except for Overbrook......... and if anyone has a copy of
the history of Overbrook, I'm willing to pay double for it.
