4 Dating Old Photographs 1840-1929

(2000), 2004, 8x11, paper, 96 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A number of books have already been published that describe how to date old photographs. They rely almost entirely on descriptions: Dating Old Photographs are almost all reproductions of old photographs of known date. Each contains over 650 pictures covering the period from the 1840s to the 1920s. By comparing your unknown pictures to those in our book, you will be able to compare clothing and hair fashion, the poses adopted by the subject and the background settings. The book provides convincing evidence that our ancestors were at least as fashion conscious as we are today and that those fashions changed just as frequently.

An Index of Headstones in Lincoln Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois, Alabama Study Group of the Afro-American Genealogy and Historical Society of Chicago


15 An Index of Headstones in Lincoln Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois
Alabama Study Group of the Afro-American Genealogy and Historical Society of Chicago
1999, 5˝x8˝, paper, 577 pp, Heritage Books
The Alabama Study Group, spent three years compiling this valuable cemetery index. Lincoln Cemetery is thought to be the largest African American cemetery in the Chicago area. It was originally opened about 1911 by the Chicago Cemetery Association. This indexing project incorporates the identifying information of the grave markers only in the original section of "Historic" Lincoln Cemetery. In addition to headstone markings, Study Group members were permitted to include in the index, the locations of known ancestors whose graves are not marked by headstones. Grave markers located in the adjacent Oak Hill Cemetery were also included. Prior to the creation of Lincoln, it is in this section of Oak Hill where, prior to 1902, many blacks were buried. This alphabetical listing contains name, date of death, date of birth and cemetery section number for more than 27,000 headstones. (Two of the sections have names instead of numbers.) Once you have identified an individual, your research must then take you to the cemetery office to obtain specific grave location information. The cemetery office records may also contain names of other family members, as well as insurance and burial information.

In Search of Your British & Irish Roots: A Complete Guide to Tracing Your English, Welsh, Scottish, & Irish Ancestors. Fourth Edition, Angus Baxter


18 In Search of Your British & Irish Roots: A Complete Guide to Tracing Your English, Welsh, Scottish, & Irish Ancestors. Fourth Edition
Angus Baxter

Whether you conduct your research in person or by mail, this celebrated manual--now in its Fourth Edition--will guide you in finding your ancestors in Britain or Ireland. Noted genealogist Angus Baxter provides detailed instructions for locating records abroad and shows how easy it is to do it by mail--or on a vacation trip! He begins with step-by-step instructions on drawing up a family tree, and explains how to use sources close at hand. The search continues by correspondence with family history societies, record offices, and other organizations listed here, before concluding with a possible--but not essential--trip to the source, Britain or Ireland. The Fourth Edition of this classic work includes discussions of the following topics: * The transfer of important genealogical records from Chancery Lane and St. Catherine's House to the new Family Records Centre in London--most notably, civil registration records, census returns, and records of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury * The 1986, 1996, and 1998 reorganization of counties in England and Wales and the latest information on where to find local records. Where available, URLs are given for county record offices (CROs), as well as for major repositories. Phone and fax numbers, if available, are also given for CROs and other archives * The British Library transfer of many of its collections from the Great Russell Street location (inside the British Museum) to a new facility at St. Pancras, London * The establishment of the Irish Genealogical Project * The 1998 amalgamation of the Public Record Office and State Paper Office into the National Archives of Ireland In the end, Baxter demonstrates how the threads of fact can be woven into a rich and detailed family history, the ultimate goal of every searcher determined to find his family roots.

20 The Browns of Bedford County, Virginia, 1748-1840. A Collection of Brown Surname Records Extracted from Primary and Secondary Sources
Barbara Brown Eakley
(1998), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 192 pp, Heritage Books
Who was John Brown? Who were the ancestors of John Brown? Every Brown researcher can empathize with the dilemmas inherent in tracing that name. It would seem that most villages in early Virginia had a John Brown in every generation. The author's John Brown was said by family tradition to have "come from" Bedford County. Was that true? Bedford County in Virginia was on the path of the great Wagon Road which led from Philadelphia to Harper's Ferry to Tennessee. Uncounted scores of immigrants moved westward along that road, settling in a county for a few years before moving farther west. Bedford County records reflect that pattern of settling and moving, settling and moving. Many Brown families passed through Bedford County on their way west and left recorded evidence of having been there. Many of their family members, slaves, neighbors and business associates were named with them. Some 606 other surnames are associated with Brown in those records. The author studied all available records, and was able to rule out that the ancestors of her John Brown were from Bedford County. He was the descendant of several generations of pioneer settlers in Montgomery County, Virginia, but had married into a family which had moved there from Bedford County. Every genealogist knows that to rule out is to get closer to the truth. This collection of abstracted records is intended as a finding tool for researchers. The abstracts are written in modern English, and place names have been standardized.
