An aquaintance of a friend of mine has a certificate, perhaps a discharge, of Charles McCarthy of Luzerne County, PA. She apparently obtained it as a collectible. She is not related to the McCarthy family but would like to see it returned to descendants. Since my friend knows that I am very much interested in genealogy, she asked my help.
I do not know anything about the McCarthy family, but I know that this would be a real treasure to Charles McCarthy's descendants if they have any interest in family history.
Unfortunately, I am far from Luzerne County; therefore, I am unable to do much research on this matter.
There are absolutely no strings attached to this offer. The lady who possesses the certificate would simply like to return it to the family.
