5 CD: Dod’s Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage of Great Britain and Ireland, for 1892, Including all the Titled Classes, Fifty Second Year

(1892), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 971 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
"Accounts of the titled classes had hitherto been confined to those who possessed hereditary distinctions, omitting any reference to nearly one thousand officers in the colonial, diplomatic, military, naval, and civil service of the state. Bishops, Judges, Privy Councillors, and the different classes of Knights, enjoy distinctions which command universal respect, discharge functions of the highest dignity, and are in the daily habit of performing services to the State, on which the authority of England abroad and her security at home are mainly dependent; yet a complete collection of memoirs relating to those distinguished individuals remained unattempted till this publication made its first appearance." The introductory pages include illustrations of various insignia, an essay explaining the grounds for each claim to precedence, an article on the inferior titles of living peers, and a list of Her Majesty's Officers of Arms. Part One of this volume collects the following ten classes into one general dictionary, in which details are given of their titles, parentage and descent, ages, birthplaces, marriages, education, professions, residences, public services, offices, the occasions on which their titles were conferred, with numerous historical, personal, and professional details: The Peers, The Peeresses, The Bishops, The Baronets, The Scottish Judges, The Privy Council, The Knights of the Bath and of St. Michael and St. George, The Knights of the Order of the Star of India, and of the Indian Empire, The Knights Bachelor and Widows of Knights. Part Two of this volume contains several articles: The Sons, Daughters, etc. of Peers, Bearing Courtesy Titles; Modes of Addressing Letters; The Privy Council; and The Orders of Knighthood.

6 CD: Genealogical Periodical Annual Index: Key to the Genealogical Literature, Vol. 31-40, 1992-2001

2002, CD, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 3694 pp, CD, Heritage Books
The mass of valuable reference material published in genealogical periodicals each year is quite astounding, but it is difficult to search without a comprehensive index. Genealogical Periodical Annual Index has been providing a comprehensive surname, locality, and topical index to over 300 major English-language genealogical periodicals for the past forty years. This CD-ROM includes the ten volumes of GPAI published over the past decade. Each volume can be searched individually, as is done with the cloth bound library editions, but the volumes on this CD are all electronic text, so the entire decade can be searched by means of a single master electronic index which makes it very easy to use. Since GPAI indexes book and CD reviews, as well as all substantive periodical articles, it is an important key to the genealogical literature that can be utilized by all genealogical and historical researchers. The citations in GPAI are of three basic types: surname, locality, and topical. Bible records, family records, and genealogies are indexed under the name of the male progenitor. The citation gives his date of birth or some other vital statistic if possible, identifies his wives, and indicates the places the family lived. Record abstracts are indexed under the appropriate geographical headings, such as state, county, town. Articles which do not fit under the foregoing headings are indexed under the appropriate topical heading such as African American (and other ethnic groups), Civil War (and other wars), computer genealogy, immigration, medical, methodology (including all kinds of how-to subjects). Quakers (and other religious groups), etc. With the new electronic search capability, all kinds of searches are now much easier. All the citations include a description of the type of record, i.e., Bible record, genealogy, book review, newspaper abstracts, city directory, obituary, military records, school records, census records, etc. The citation also identifies the periodical, volume, issue, and page number where the article begins. A directory of the periodicals indexed is provided, so the researcher can acquire copies of articles of interest. This ELECTRONIC TEXT CD-ROM uses the Adobe Acrobat Reader provided free on the CD for Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

7 CD: The AA Road Book of England and Wales: With Gazetteer, Itineries, Maps and Town Plans

(1925), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat v6, PC and Mac, 652 pp, Heritage Books
"The Itineraries total 31,000 miles. There are, of course, many minor roads which have been omitted as unessential to the main plan of this book, viz, the provision of a simple reference work for those desirous of planning their journeys or visiting the places of interest mentioned in the Gazetteer. Such roads may be traced on the map, the chief function of which is to provide, in conjunction with the descriptive headings, a ready means of assessing the comparative values of alternative routes." "In drawing the plans, as in compiling the itineraries, every effort has been made to show not merely main routes but the best." In addition this volume contains numerous maps and town plans, an alphabetical list of ferries throughout England and Wales, as well as a history of the Automobile Association. This road book provides three books in one: a road book, a gazetteer and an atlas. A place name index provides easy access to information.

Black and white map, 18" x 24", including margins., Reproduction map of original
Entitled “New Map of Boston, Comprising the Whole City, with the New Boundaries of the Wards”, this carefully detailed map of what was the fifth largest city in the United States was originally engraved for inclusion in the 1860 Boston Almanac. In addition to the city’s streets and its 12 wards, the “horse railroad” lines, ferries and wharves are also identified. A reference table identifies 30 locations of note, including the hospital, public buildings and major hotels. An inset showing all of “East Boston” completes the map. An excellent reference for researchers with a mid 19th century Boston connection.

Virginia Slave Births Index, 1853-1865, Volume 1, A-C, Alexandria Library, Local History/Special Collections


18 Virginia Slave Births Index, 1853-1865, Volume 1, A-C
Alexandria Library, Local History/Special Collections
2007, 5½x8½, paper, alphabetical, 664 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
In 1853, the Commonwealth of Virginia began an annual registration of births and deaths. The Birth Index of Slaves, 1853-1865 was later transcribed by the Works Project Administration (WPA) and recorded on microfilm. While the information—name of slave owner, infant’s name, mother’s name, birth date, place of birth—is of immense value to genealogists, working with the microfilm can be problematic. Hence, the creation of this multi-volume reference work, Virginia Slave Births Index, 1853-1865. In 2003, staff and volunteers with Local History/Special Collections, Alexandria Library began to transcribe the WPA microfilm, enter data into spreadsheets, and sort the information by slave owner’s surname and given name. Entries include single births, multiple births, and stillbirths. Occasionally, both parents of an enslaved infant are identified. In rare instances, the name of a freeborn infant appears. Independent city and county names are spelled out. Data not reported in the microfilm is denoted by “----.” Illegible text in the microfilm is denoted by “####.” This index includes more than 130,000 entries.
