Crafting a Personal Family History: A Guide Plus A Case Study of the Hinds Family in New York's Adirondack Mountains, Harold E Hinds, Jr


1 Crafting a Personal Family History: A Guide Plus A Case Study of the Hinds Family in New York's Adirondack Mountains
Harold E Hinds, Jr

Crafting a Personal Family History establishes the basic principles necessary to successfully research and document a person family history. In most cases only a fragmentary record of an ancestor's life will have survived, and those traces will tend to cluster around only a few topics. So it is in the Hinds case study presented. Analysis of those traces is essential: so analysis is made transparent in the text. Other approaches are briefly presented in an appendix. Praise for Crafting a Personal Family History: Harold Hinds, in this ground-breaking and valuable textbook, applies his unsurpassed scholarship and experience as an academic historian to the fledgling field of personal family history. Providing both theory and practical example, Hinds makes a significant contribution that seekers of ancestors will find not only helpful, but enlightening. He has demonstrated vividly and convincingly that exploiting oft-neglected local and regional materials and analyzing them diligently in light of the time and place of their creation, can reveal -- even when the forebears are unexceptional folk from Ireland -- an engaging, often surprising, sometimes shocking family saga well worth telling. John Philip Colletta, Ph.D., author of Only a Few Bones About the Author: Harold E. Hinds, Jr is Distinguished Research Professor of History at the University of Minnesota-Morris

Town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, Transcribed Serial Records, Volume 9, Wilmington School Records, 1822-1900, Harold Hinds, Jr. and Tina Didreckson


6 Town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, Transcribed Serial Records, Volume 9, Wilmington School Records, 1822-1900
Harold Hinds, Jr. and Tina Didreckson
2007, 8˝x11, paper, index, 384 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This volume is the ninth in a series devoted to presenting a transcription of the surviving serial manuscript records for the town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains. While it is well known that in 1847 the New York legislature passed an “Act for the registry of births, marriages, and deaths” by School District Clerks, it is not widely recognized that schools from 1814 extending into the 1920s, produced School Trustee Annual Reports. The Essex County Clerk’s Office holds a collection of these reports, and the authors have abstracted the collection for the town of Wilmington. Unfortunately, some years are entirely missing (1860-63, 1869-74, 1890), and not all school districts’ reports survive for any given year. Nevertheless, these records are very valuable, both for genealogists and family historians. The earliest reports list “the books most in use in the common schools of said town.” These lists (generally quite short) offer a fascinating window into your ancestor’s education. For Wilmington, beginning in 1857, the reports list the names of teachers and their terms, and the parent or guardian as well as the number of their children aged four to twenty-one. These children are not necessarily attending school. Then in 1877, the names and ages of all children of school age are added. In 1887, the reports revert to the 1857-1876 format. Then in 1898, children’s names and ages are again added for children five through eighteen. The number of those children who attended public school from October through the first of June is indicated. The 1889, 1891 and 1892 school census provides names of parents or guardians and the number of children of school age. When combined with the 1892 New York state census, these reports can provide a partial substitute for the missing 1890 federal census. A full name index adds to the value of this work.

7 Town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, Transcribed Serial Records, Volume 12, Tax Assessment Records, 1891-1900
Harold Hinds, Jr., Tina Didreckson and Erika Paulson
2008, 8˝x11, paper, index, 228 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This volume is the twelfth in a series devoted to presenting a transcription of the surviving serial manuscript records for the town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains. Starting in 1886, and continuing in the years covered in this volume, both the lot numbers and tract (complete with descriptive comments) are provided for taxable residents. The following information may also be recorded: number of acres, value of estate, value of personal property, total valuation, amount of tax, dog tax, whether the tax is paid, returned resident highway tax, and returned resident school tax. For lands of non-residents there is considerable information provided, but the owner's name is omitted. For some years (excluding 1892-4 and 1896), an end-of-year Town Supervisor's report (sometimes a newspaper clipping) is appended. It contains valuable information, as all town offices and officers are listed. In some cases the year-end report includes not just officers and amounts paid them, but others who were paid by the Town for services provided. Occasionally, comments are added which could prove useful or add a bit of "color" to your family portrait. The tax records have been transcribed as presented. All names have been reproduced as spelled in the original. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
