Typically, when I add books to the Library page, it’s because I’m getting ready to return the book to the library. This is the case with my list of pages listing Neffs in JA Caldwell’s 1880 publication, “History of Indiana County, Penn’a, 1745-1880.” You can view it at online for free, but it’s helpful to have an index.
