The Cameron County Public Library is unable to do genealogical research for individuals. However, the Library does have a small collection of local history materials including obituaries, cemetery records and local newspapers (beginning January 1964 to present) all of which may be researched during Library hours. Due to the fragile nature of the bound newspapers we cannot make photocopies from them.
For further help with genealogical research you may check our Links page and/or contact the Cameron County Historical Society, c/o Mrs. Sandra Hornung, 102 W. 4th Street Emporium, PA 15834.
