Highlights for April 13th, 2008

What's the saying, "leave no stone unturned"? Well, the same goes when searching for ancestors. Recently when shopping for ephemera, I found a small pile of receipts and on a whim decided to look on the backs. To my surprise, each listed assessment information for a different month. These 16 little pieces of paper included death details for 225 individuals... what a find! Check out Grand Jurisdiction of Missouri A. O. U. W. Deaths (1887-1889)

Two reports for the Saginaw (Michigan) Police Department (1907 and 1913) included more than just rosters of the policemen. Included were listings of criminals sentenced during each of those years.

Also this week, the first installment of records published in the early 1900's by the American Irish Historical Society, including Irish Burghers of New Amsterdam (1695-1808), Revolutionary Patriots in Vermont, Early Marriages in Worcester County MA (1741-1786), and Morristown First Presbyterian Church Records (1745-1806).

These are just a few of the 36 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.
