As a follow-up to yesterday's email regarding the Cambria County Facebook
page, today there was an announcement about the latest release of
Pennsylvania records on Ancestry. The announcement takes you to the
Pennsylvania State Archives portal .

Go half way down the page, Pennsylvania. I found this to be
the most interesting section.

I live out of state and don't have a paid Ancestry account. Typed in a
family member's zip code.

Took a look and downloaded the Pennsylvania, Births, 1852-1854, for Cambria.
This was typed, suspect it was part of the 1930s WPA program for individuals
still living and born in that time period. Recognized several surnames from
the county.
