Antietam Historical Association (AHA) has access to some extensive archives of historical interest to those researching ancestors who dwelt in the Antietam region. AHA anticipates placing much of this information on databases on this website; however, in the meantime, AHA is happy to assist you personally with your historical or genealogical research.

Our services are provided to AHA Fellows free of charge. For some services there may be a charge to non-AHA-Fellows. If you are interested in the history or genealogy of the Antietam country, we encourage you to become a Fellow of AHA. In return, AHA will render you every possible courtesy in your research. Please contact us for details.

For starters, please click here to browse old newspapers from Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.

Also, the AHA collection includes a variety of manuscripts, typescripts, and images which are gradually being digitized for online use. The early-Twentieth-century typescript of Miss Julia Ripple Nevin’s typescript of Ripple Family History is illustrative of what AHA maintains to assist researchers.
