Do You Know that you can search just the Directories by using the Directories button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page

Compiling a book of this character is supremely more of a task than one at first thought would allow.

Between the covers of this book, nearly 35,000 names appear, then would it be surprising if some of them are found to be spelled incorrectly?

Tioga County's population is approximately 50,000. We have aimed to secure correct information regarding all over seventeen years of age, but of course, it is probable that some names are missing.

Owing to the time required to make the canvass of the County, many changes have taken place, these have been corrected as far as possible up to date, that is January 1st, 1909, but, of course, it has been impossible to secure all changes, so you will find, perchance, that some names appear of those who have moved to another place (some have departed this life) and doubtless some of the fairer sex have changed their name.

Fourteen months has been consumed in securing the information herein contained.

We have been ably assisted by Mr. F. S. Andrews, of Wellsboro.

The names were typewritten from original manuscript by Miss Lillian M. Wheeland, of Morris Run.

Would recognize and thank the two hundred business men who, by their patronage of our advertising pages have made it possible to present this work at such a reasonable price.

We consider that we have, and present you, herewith, "The Best Directory of Tioga County Possible to Produce."

Thanking all for their kindly treatment, their willingness in answering the pertinent questions, and the ready co-operation which our efforts have received, we leave the work to obtain for itself that favor, which earnest endeavor ever achieves.

H. R. ANDERSON. (1908)


I would add to Mr. Anderson's preface, that in additon to the errors found in the original directory, a few additional ones may enter these pages as a result of faulty Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and the failure to catch those errors in proofing and editing (JMT). We trust that you will be tolerant of any imperfections that result.

The Map that is supposed to be inside the back cover, is missing from this copy.

My thanks to Barb Conrad for sharing with me the cost of obtaining this book for presentation on this site. Mr. Anderson, who prided himself on the "reasonable price" of his book, would be amazed at the entirely unreasonable price one has to pay for it now. He'd probably also be amazed at the number of us who still want to see his nearly century old publicattion
