Springs Historical Society

The Casselman Chronicle covers the history of the Casselman River Valley of Somerset County, Pennsylvania; Garrett County, Maryland; and nearby areas. It is the official publication of the Springs Historical Society of Springs, Pennsylvania. This online index of Casselman Chronicle spans the volumes that were published between 1961 and 2015 (Volume 1, Number 1 through Volume LV, Number 2). The index for 1961 through 2007 was compiled by Beth Page.

The index for 2008 through 2010 was written by Judith McConville and Pilar Wyman as a pro bono project of the Mid- and South-Atlantic Chapter of the American Society for Indexing. Judith McConville wrote the 2011-2017 index.
Wanda Meck added additions to the 1961-2017 index.

How to Use the Online Index

A reader can either search for a term using the free text area or the index can be browsed by Topic using the alphabet buttons.

Names and subjects are listed alphabetically with descriptive subheading followed by reference locators directing the reader to a particular issue. (Please be aware that this is not an every-name index.) Reference locators provide the year issued, the volume number for that year and the page number. For example, a locator expressed as

2007 no. 2:24

will guide the reader to page 24 in volume 2 published in 2007.
