We prove some general combinatorial identities involving a variable, a parameter, and partial sums of arbitrary sequences. Applying these formulas, we deduce many finite binomial and central binomial sum identities involving the harmonic numbers. Most of our results are new and some known formulas are particular cases of those obtained here.
