If you are looking for genealogical information we are able to research records from the Record American newspaper from 1919 to 1969. Our records prior to 1919 are very sparse. The historical society only has a few active members, so it is not possible for us to do research at this time - other than what is available in the Record American.


The fee for research from the Record American is $10.00 for the first item and

$ 5.00 for each additional item. Researched items are placed in a jpeg. file and sent by e-mail.


You are welcome to come to the Historical Room in the Rhoades Downtown Center at Main and Centre Streets in Mahanoy City to do your own research. The digitized newspapers are available on two computers. There are also some census records available and many binders of photocopied information about local history.


The Mahanoy Area Historical Society is open Thursday and Friday from noon to 3 PM. If you are coming from out of town please contact me on this page ahead of time so I can be sure to be there.
