Longswamp Twsp., Berks Co., PA
This website is centered on a Berks County, PA store logbook/ledger/day book that was acquired a short while ago. It is c1843, and the logbook itself is ledger style. All told, there is writing on over 330 pages in the ledger, and it appears to cover a full years worth of data, with the very first dated entry on February 9th, 1843. The entries made are for people who came into this store to purchase things, much like we do today.
