Beginning in 2015, HSP’s Digital Services staff have created several new databases for genealogists and family historians, making previously-inaccessible information available online for researchers. Called Encounters, this new digital resource is available to on-site researchers in HSP's Library, with remote access a benefit of membership to HSP.
The display highlights collection materials featured in Encounters, including items from the:
- Oliver H. Bair Company Records (1920-1980)
- Pennsylvania, Revolutionary War Battalions and Militia Index (1775-1783)
- Philadelphia Home for Infants collection
- Philadelphia Job Placement Office collection
- The Home Missionary Society collection
- Genealogical Scrapbooks & Research Folders (1607-1958)
