Genealogy/History Room

Located on the second floor of the New Castle Public Library, the collection in the History Room includes family histories, standard reference works, county histories of Pennsylvania, and other genealogical material.

The New Castle Public Library is proud of its collection of genealogical materials. The collection is especially strong in Pennsylvania census records and local family histories.

If you need the assistance of one of our genealogy librarians, please call ahead to make sure one will be available when you plan to come. We also take appointments, 724-658-6659, ext. 112, 129.  Thank you.


A public copier/printer is available; charge is $0.15 for black-and-white and $0.50 for color copies.  Several microfilm machines are available for public use; copies are $0.50 per page.  Assistance is available in using these machines.

Genealogy staff will also do LIMITED genealogical research and provide information by mail – please see Genealogy Requests for more information.
