Are you doing research on residents of the village of Kelayres in Kline Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania?
If so, check this out! I'm offering a portion of my genealogical and historical research - collected while writing The Kelayres Massacre: Politics and Murder in Pennsylvania's Coal Country - free of charge here.

Perhaps you're doing research in the Pennsylvania counties of Allegheny, Butler, Lancaster, Lawrence, Mercer, Montgomery or Philadelphia.
I'll be posting great research links and tips for these counties as I research my tenth book, Pretty Evil Pennsylvania, about lawless ladies of the Keystone State. Follow me on social media (links above) or sign up for my mailing list to learn when new research data is posted on this site. In the meantime, check the progress of this resource collection here.
