Grant awarded to the Bucks County Historic Deed Book Preservation Project
Bucks County Recorder of Deeds, Dan McPhillips, who partnered with Bucks County Genealogical Society President, Mary Bustash, have been awarded a $5,000 grant from the Bucks County Foundation.
Earlier this year the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds partnered with the Bucks County Genealogical Society to apply for a grant benefitting the Historic Deed Book Preservation Project. The grant is through the Bucks County Foundation, which is a philanthropic organization that serves the people and places of Bucks County. This grant, in the amount of $5,000, was awarded in April.
While partnership between the Recorder of Deeds office and the Genealogical Society may not seem logical to some, it is a fruitful endeavor for both. One of the ways to trace family history is through deed books. Having the deed books preserved can make genealogy research a bit easier. It really is a win-win situation for both establishments.
Executive Director of the Bucks County Foundation Mandy Mundy says, “Bucks County Foundation is proud to serve as a grant partner for this important and timely historical project as this cause holds both historical and educational value.”
