With this work, Egle hopes to provide readers with a resource that will allow them to investigate their family trees and the roots that link them back to Scotland, Ireland, and Germany. Some of the families in the text have roots reaching all the way back to the beginning of United States history with records to support their level of impact on the development of the nation. In addition, some of the families that Egle covers had yet to ever be discussed in a published work and therefore established vital information for researchers interested in these families and their histories in the U.S. Egle also links several families to well known historic figures such as George Washington.
For the academic researcher and the contemporary genealogist, Pennsylvania Genealogies: Scotch-Irish and German is a critical source to understand and trace dozens of pivotal Pennsylvanian families. William Henry Egle offers a thorough discussion of each family, exploring both their history in the United States and their links back to different parts of Europe. Egle's passion for this subject makes this text an interesting read not just for the history scholar but also for any reader who is researching their own roots and family tree.
