Tracing your Roots
The Conococheague Institute has long been known for helping people discover their family roots through Genealogical research. Our Library has an entire room dedicated to local families, and many past researchers have been kind enough to leave copies of their own research. When searching for your family history you may be lucky to find that a lot of work has already been done!
Our Family History extends far further than just the families of Rock Hill Farm but to neighboring Counties and even States!
While the best research is done in the Library, some pre-work can be done online.
CI holds a wonderful copy of the "Palmer Papers" an extensive Genealogical work, and in more recent years the index was digitized.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The index contains keywords and family names, with their corresponding page number in the papers. Open the document and search your family name. If you would like to see that information from the page, you can do it during Library hours (Wednesday's 10 am to 2 pm) or by arranging an appointment with Mary Hartman. We are also able to provide small amounts of information via email. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
