Highlights for January 20th, 2008

This week, be sure to check out the Nevada Inspector of Mines 1929-1930 Report, which includes listings of fatal and non-fatal mining accident victims. While these types of reports don't include many names, if one of your ancestors is mentioned, it will be a truly wonderful find. If you've got ancestors from Oneida County, New York, take a look at 117th N. Y. Volunteers 1909 Roster, which gives the names and addresses of survivors, and the name and year of those deceased. This is the Fourth Oneida County Regiment. Recently, I found a very interesting Returns of Desertions, Discharges, Deaths, Etc., in Maine Regiments, for the Months of May, June and July, 1864. All of the information has been carefully transcribed and put online. And a friend of a person whose grandfather was an instructor at the Iowa School for the Deaf contacted me as they were selling several graduation programs. Check them out: 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916 and 1917.

These are just a few of the 34 resources published today. Every week I send out a complete listing of the items added. If you'd like to join this RootsWeb mailing list called GenToday-L, click here for instructions.
