The Trails Through Penns Woods-Records of Colonial PA

by Sandy Rumble

Researching in Colonial Pennsylvania can be a challenge for genealogists unfamiliar with the diverse populations that came together to form early Pennsylvania. William Penn wanted “his colony” to be a place where people of diverse backgrounds and religions could live together peacefully, without persecution and the heavy interfering hand of government. Penn’s noble ideas led to scattered record keeping, and conflicts in land grants from the British Kings led to competing land claims from neighboring colonies. However, this successful social experiment led to Philadelphia becoming the home of the Continental Congress, gifting religious tolerance, freedom of speech, and conscientious objector status to the new Republic.

Sandy started her career as a software developer and trainer. For over 30 years, Sandy was the go-to person to train new users in cutting-edge software developing in-house training programs for new development tools. Expanding her interest in teaching outside the software industry, Sandy began teaching genealogy, DNA testing, the Constitution, Congress, and the judicial system at the Delaware Valley University Center for Learning in Retirement. Sandy recently began speaking at genealogical institutes, conferences, genealogical and historical societies, and DAR Chapters. As a course coordinator for GRIP, Sandy coordinated Documentation for Lineage Societies and co-coordinated Answering the Call of Uncle Sam, an exploration of 18th & 19th century American military records.
