History of Freeland, Pa.
Freeland area school personnel, 1940

Our frequent contributor Ed Merrick has culled information on Freeland area school personnel from the 1940 Federal census. The resulting lists are really interesting for those who grew up in Freeland around that period. The two photos show a dictionary from one of the Freeland schools, too, also from Ed. Thank you, Ed!
