Overview

Self-reported by organization

In collaboration with the 1719 Hans Herr House Museum in Willow Street, Pennsylvania, the Society hosts "Lancaster Roots" (www.LancasterRoots.org) a year-long schedule of more than three dozen concerts, classes, festivals, field trips, sales and exhibits. In 2010, the two organizations organized the 300th anniversary celebration of the first permanent European settlement in Lancaster County. The Society's assets include one of Pennsylvania’s best genealogical libraries, the Martin E. Ressler collection of 4,500 old and rare hymnals and part of the Daniel and Kathryn McCauley collection of Amish crafts. Ongoing programs include the Lancaster Family History Conference, the Pennsylvania German Folk Art Show & Sale, and a four-day outdoor used book sale known as the "Bookworm Frolic."
