Genealogical and Personal History of Western
Pennsylvania Vol. 1-3 (John W. Jordan, 1915, 1996 pages)

The Foreword of this publication makes known its purpose and contents:
    "The present work, "Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania," presents in the aggregate an amount and variety of genealogical and personal information and portraiture unequalled by any kindred publication.  No similar work concerning Western Pennsylvania has ever before been presented, and it contains a vast amount of ancestral history never before printed.  The object, clearly defined and well digested, is to present in concise form the history of Western Pennsylvania Families of the Colonial Days.
    There are numerous volunimus histories of the State, making it unnecessary in this work to even outline its annals.  What has been published, however, relates principally to civic life.  The amplification necessary to complete the picture, old and nowaday, is what is supplied by these Genealogical and Personal Memoirs.  In other words, while others have written of "the times," the province of this work is as a chronicle of the people who have made this magnificent region what it is."

This is an extensive biographical publication which covers western Pennsylvania, including the cities of Pittsburgh and Allegheny City, and the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Fayette, Indiana, Mercer, Somerset, Venango, Washington, Westmoreland.  Included with the biographical information are hundreds of portraits of this areas leading men and women.
