1 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.

The George M. Bedinger Papers in the Draper Manuscript Collection, Craig L. Heath

2 The George M. Bedinger Papers in the Draper Manuscript Collection
Craig L. Heath
2002, 51/2x81/2, paper, index, 420 pp, paperback, Heritage Books
"...a valuable collection of first-hand in detail and anecdotes of the life of a wilderness soldier and woodsman. With accounts of service on several major campaigns, as well as of detailed narratives of several frontier actions, this collection of George M. Bedinger's papers provides both interesting reading and a useful resource. " -The Brigade Dispatch Vol. 32 No. 3 This book will be of use particularly to persons interested in early Kentucky history and genealogy, and sheds light on events in the Revolutionary War as well. Researchers will welcome the new index, which allows easy navigation through these fascinating historical records. Bedinger's military career began in 1775 in Virginia where he enlisted in Col. Hugh Stevenson's company of sharpshooters. He participated in the siege of Boston and the battle of Germantown, and brought supplies to the army at Valley Forge. He took part in Bowman's Campaign of 1779, an abortive attack on a Shawnee Indian village. Later that year he joined a company setting forth for Kentucky, where they reinforced the Indian-harassed pioneers at Boonesborough. He was present at the siege of Yorktown, and eventually explored the Green River country in Kentucky and made his permanent home at Lower Blue Licks. All of these exciting events and many more are described in these papers, which consist of personal recollections written by Bedinger or taken by Draper from his verbal dictation, affidavits of services, land warrants, and letters from his descendants. Included is a map of the Blue Lick battleground. The distinguished Draper Manuscripts, owned by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, are a prized source of information for students of American history.

6 Genealogical Data from United States Military Academy Application Papers, 1805-1866, Volume 1
Patrick G. Wardell
2002, 5½x8½, cloth, index, 410 pp, Heritage Books
This compilation is a great resource for the genealogist, a must have! The data collected is from the first 124 (of 242) reels of microfilm at the National Archives and the data is taken from personal handwritten applications from young men mailed directly to the US Secretary or War. There is much hidden genealogical information that is not shown in any other source. The applicants in many cases identified grandparents and great grandparents, many of the men being veterans of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. The genealogical information for those males who applied and did not get into West Point is also available in this book. The United States Military Academy was established by law in 1802 with Congress authorizing the President to organize a Corps of Engineers that was to contain, in addition to the officers, 10 cadets who were to receive a military education and who were to receive pay. The Corps was then stationed at West Point and constituted the Military Academy. This book includes applicants of some famous general officers of the Civil war, both Union and Confederate, including Abner Doubleday, William Tecumseh Sherman, Jubal Early, Carlos Buell, George Armstrong Custer along with many others. The data includes the date they applied, where they were living, age and in some cases mentions relatives by name.
