    3. Dear Rich, You might also try the Power Pennsylvania Library, the on-line catalog, looking up "pow-wowing" and you should be able to find all the holdings in the whole state. Going to a search engine and putting in Power Access PA or Pennsylvania State Library should get you there. Hwyl, Beth

    3. Hi Rich, There is an article in the Proceedings of the Pa. German Society on powwowing, I don't remember the date but if you check a library up at Penn State you should find it. You can also check the Journal of the Lancaster County, Historical Society from their web page at http://lanclio.org They have the table of contents of their journal on the web page.

    1. [PA~FOLKS] Pow Wowing
    2. rtnorn
    3. Hello, I am new to this list and am very interested in Pa. Folklore. I grew up in Snyder County and as a child I heard lots of stories about Pow Wowing and of course was pow wowed on for warts and other minor problems. Very few people talk about this practice anymore but recently I purchased a very old book in Pa. German titled The Long Lost Friend. The book was printed in 1820 in Reading and is about Pow Wowing. Since it is in German I can't read very much of the book, but I would really love to hear from members of this list about their memories of the Pa. German practice of Pow Wowing. I would especially like to hear some of the cures and the practices followed as I can't remember a lot about it from my childhood. Rich
