Defining and navigating the waterways in and around Pittsburgh in the early 1800s was made easier by Zadok Cramer, a local bookshop and printer owner. While he was first known for publishing the Navigator, he also published Cramer's Pittsburgh Almanack for a number of years.
This little gem is also the source of a number of marriages in the area. The beauty is now one can find many of the years online. On just this one page pictured, I find evidence of two marriages in my family.
What makes it more fun is noticing so many friends of the family listed here as well.
Ahhh, genealogy. How many pages do you need to navigate to find the treasure.....
