This book contains an alphabetical listing of over 11,000 names appearing in events of genealogical interest in Hazleton newspapers from 1 January 1917 to 31 December 1918. It primarily lists those events that occurred within a 30 mile radius of Hazleton and those with a connection to the Hazleton area. Types of records abstracted include immigrations, births, deaths, obituaries, funerals, marriages, divorces, pensions, and wills.
The date listing is the date that the event appeared in the paper, not the date that the event occurred. Names and places are spelled as they appeared in the paper even though they appear to be incorrect in some instances, therefore, the list should be checked for variations in spelling. The same event may be listed on several dates.
