While our work on the Chew project has been completed for some time now, we at HSP continue to work hard on many other archives and conservation projects to make our collections accessible and available to the public.

You can read more about our work on collections like the Friends of the Benjamin Franklin House, the Allen Family Papers, A.A. Humphreys, George Meade, and many others at our new blog Fondly, Pennsylvania. Please join us!



Trying to find out what gravesite my mother is bried in at Mt. Moriah Cemetery. She died when I was 4 months old. My father remarried and I was not allowed to talk about my mother. I am in poor health and I would like to find out something about her before I die. I did send and get a death certificate. It stated she died October 20th, 1937. She was born on April 15th 1917. She was born in Glassboro, New Jersey. I would like to know if there are any living relative still in Glassboro. Her father was John Reed.
Thanking you in advance for any information you can get for me.

Re: Genealogy inquiry

Dear Mr. Long:
Thank you for your request for researching materials at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately your request would take more time than the usual 5-10 minutes allowed for Ready Reference. You may wish to use our Research-by-Mail service. For $60 ($35 for an HSP member) we will spend up to one hour on your request. Check out our website ( for details.
We look forward to being of service.
