Local History Publications

Our Local History section offers a number of books and DVDs about the local area, from general information about the towns to volumes with specific genealogical records. Many of the publications contain information and photographs provided by local historical societies, as well as current and former residents.

This growing collection, along with the books in our Images of America, Bethlehem, and Moravian sections, will provide you with some insight to the town in which you live, or may provide that missing piece of information in your genealogical search.

Please note: most titles are listed online in only one category. For example, Bethlehem Steel titles are not listed here but are on a separate page.

If there's a title for your genealogical research that you don't see, please ask! Although we have only select geographical areas in-stock due to space limitations, we often can order other areas.
