Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Thursday, April 27, 2000

In the continuing search for the church where Great Grandpa and Buscha Horbal were married, I've found the web site for the Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown. They list one Sts. Peter and Paul Church in their diocese, but it's in Philipsburg, which is in Centre County, not Blair (and besides, if they lived in Allegheny Furnace, which is basically the south side of Altoona, it wouldn't make sense for them to travel all the way up to Philipsburg, which I remember well from my days in State College, to get married).

Incidentally, the archives page for the Diocese of Pittsburgh is very nice; I was able to find out immediately that they didn't cover Blair County, and find out which diocese did cover the county. Their links aren't necessarily up-to-date, though; I found the Altoona-Johnstown site through a page about local Catholic web sites.
