19 Notebook of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society Number 7 Robert Barnes, Editor November, 1980 SUGGESTIONS FOR SOLVING COMMON GENEALOGICAL PROBLEMS One of the most basic genealogical problems is finding the parents of an individual. The following suggestions may be obvious to some researchers, but are offered here in the hopes they will present some new sources to others. 1. Contact living relatives who might know. 2. Look for family Bibles in relatives' homes, in local libraries, in nationwide repositories, and in published collections of Bible records. 3. See if birth certificates were issued for that period in the state where the individual was born. 4. Obtain a death certificate of the individual. 5. Check local newspapers for obituaries. In addition to the brief notice of death and time and place of burial many newspapers contain longer write-ups on some of the deceased,/ which contain more biographical information. 6. Visit the cemetery where the deceased is buried and see if the names of the parents are on the tombstone. 7. Check probate records for individuals of same name to see if your person is listed as:an heir. Don't stop with willsj check administration accounts and inventories. 8. Investigate possible churches for Ipcation of baptismal records. 9. Remember to research the land records deeds may show your person selling land which the deed states he or she had inherited from a parent or grandparent. 10. Dig up old chancery, and/or eguity cases to see if your quarry was one of several heirs named in a suit to settle an estate. 11. Investigate guardian accounts, orphans court.indentures, orphans court proceedings and county court proceedings to see if your ancestor was ever made a ward of the court, or bound out as an apprentice. 12. Obtain a complete list of the person's own children and/or siblings, to see if a recurring given or middle name may suggest a parent. Among certain ethnic groups the naming of chuldren followed a pattern. 13. Check county histories and published genealogies. 14. If all else fails, go through steps 1-13 for each of the siblings of your ancestor. 15. Keep on trying. Parents' names will be found in unusual places. This writer once found the name of his great-greatrgrandfather's father in a list of patients visited by a particular doctor. BIBLE RECORD RECEIVED Benn-Kees Family Bible, pub.philadelphia, C.

32 \ v Baltimore County Genealogical Society P.O. Box Towson, Maryland The Notebook Number 11, September 1981 Robert Barnes, Editor BUDGET GUIS THREATEN NATIONAL ARCHIVES Dr. Malcolm H. Stern, Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, writes that the Reagan budget as approved by Congress is posing serious threats to the services which the National Archives will be able to render all of us interested in genealogy. The cuts in staff, programs, and publications will affect our research. We can do something to counteract these problems. We can help to make the National Archives and Records Service (NARS) an independent institution by urging our senators to support the pending Archives Independence Bill S-1421, and by requesting the Senate to hold hearings on the bill this year. At present NARS is a subsidiary cf the General Services Administration, which is not particularly sympathetic to researchers' needs. An independent NARS would have the right to appeal directly to Congress for its specific needs to preserve, catalogue, and make available the records of our nation. The entire bill with supporting arguments can be found in the Congressional Record of 2*f June Please write to your senators today. While the Baltimore County Genealogical Society takes no stand on political issues, we fool a responsibility to bring matters affecting genealogists to the attention of our members. The Editor»:*^$^^^^ BASIC RECORDS OP THE ORPHANS' COURT The following terms and definitions were found in Morris L. Radoff, Gust Skordas, and Phebe R. Jacobs en, The County Courthouses and^ Records of Maryland t Part.Tffpj. The Records (Publication No. 13, the Hall of Records Commission, State of Maryland, Annapolis, 1963). ORPHANS COURT MINUTSS OS PROCEEDINGS. These are records of the orders, decisions, and other proceedings of the Orphans' Ccuit. Sometimes guardian bonds, indentures of orphans and apprentices, and certificates of freedom were recorded here. Later separate series of records carried some of these transactions. ADMINISTRATION DOCKETS, or ESTATE DOCKETS,. These vary from county to county, but usually list the name of the deceased, and his executor or administrator, and the dates and references to the filing of certain key documents. Important because administration was sometimes granted on an estate, and then nothing more was done. PETITIONS AND ORDERS. These contain items pertaining to the settlement of estates. WILLS. The written testamentary wishes of a person indicating how his or her property is to be divided. ADMINISTRATION BONDS. These were bonds filed by adminsitrators or executors ' requiring that they faithfully carry out their responsibilities. Usually two bondsmen or securities would also si^nt They may havo been relatives of the administrator or 'executor. Examples exist of such bonds being filed, indicating that someone had died, but nor further action was taken on tho estate.

33 The Notebook«Number 11 " September 1981} page 2. / INVENTORIES. These were lists of the personal property of the deceased compiled / by two appraisers! signed by two "of the nearest kinsmen," and two of the greatest creditors. They contain information on the furnishings of the decedent's house, his tools, his cultural interests, and his relative economic status in the neighborhood. After 18^8 real property had to be included. ACCOUNT (OP) SALES. These recorded the sales of the personal property listed in the inventories. They often showed the names of purchasers, thus giving clues to kinsmen and neighbors. ADMINISTRATION ACCOUNTS. These show payments and disbursements made by the administrators/executors, as well as sums paid into the estate. They start with a statement of the decedent's worth as shown in the inventory, or carried over from the previous administration account. Payments to heirs were often included. If the account ends with a sum indicated "estate overpaid," there was probably no later account, but ff there was a sum indicated "balance due the estate," look for an additional account. Read every- account to see if any genealogical relationships or references to other peoples' estates are given. DISTRIBUTIONS. A series of records kept in some counties (e.g., Anne Arundel and Harford), but not all, showing how the remaining balances on estates were distributed among the heirs. RECEIPTS AND RELEASES. Receipts of heirs, wards, minors, and others acknowledging they have received their share of money and property coming to them, and releasing the administrator from further responsibility. INDENTURES. fi ecords of orphans and dther children bound out as apprentices. These were found in the proceedings of the county court, then in the proceedings of the orphans' court, and finally as a separate series of records. If a decedent left minor children, the following should be checked* GUARDIAN DOCKETS GUARDIAN BONDS GUARDIAN ACCOUNTS. j QUERIES FROM MEMBERS Jeanne McCormick Helpingstine, 1215 Buntin St., Vincennes, Indiana, * is working on two families in the Baltimore City areai ' FETTS* James; Elias (has a daughter, Sadie, still living in Baltimore; and Rev.

37 Baltimore County Genealogical Society P. 0. Box Towson, Maryland, SURNAME The Notebook Sobert Barnes, Editor Number 13, January 1982 ISSUE Some time ago members of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society were asked to fill out a form listing the surnames they were interested in with the state and/or county of residence, and the date the;~family appeared in the area. Those names were put on 3 x 5 cards and each member of the Society given a code number. In this issue we shall list surnames of Baltimore City, Baltimore Gounty, and Harford County submitted by our members. In future issues of The Notebook we shall list surnames from the United States, and from other parts of Maryland, One request we makes if this issue helps put members in touch with each other, and information is exchanged, how about making a copy of the data for the Society's files.

Her presidency saw the Society become incorporated, obtain a post office mailing address, receive a tax-exempt number, and adopt a logo (which she designed). The logo has been incorporated on the stationery of the society. Evelyn's eighteen months as President saw the continuation and completion of projects begun under former President Angela lardella. The by-laws were revised, The Notebook continued its sporadic appearance under the editorf this is number 15. The Cemetery Project reached one phase of completion with -the photocopying, alphabetizing, and typing of the interment cards, Again many volunteers have helped the activities of the society go forward so that the meetings became enjoyable gatherings of like-minded people (as far as genealogy is concerned) who could share information, experience, and skills, talk shop, and enjoyable a' pleasant afternoon.

Box 13146, Baltimore, Maryland, For marriage records after 1951 write to the same place. Some vital records, especially copies of raarriage certificates prior to those dates nay be secured from the county court houses. Some counties have sent their marriage"license books to the Hall of Records in Annapolis, Maryland. Births and deaths prior to 1898 (1875 in Baltimore City) will have to be found in individual church registers.... Census Records ' The census records for Maryland may be seen at the National Archives in Washington, D. G., or at various local libraries in Maryland. The Maryland Historical Society has all of the extant censuses for Maryland from 1790 through 1900, with all of the extant indices (l? ; partial index for 1830; and complete index for 1900). Some census records for i-iaryland (if not all) may also be searched at the Snoch Eratt Free Library, Baltimore, the Hall of Records in Annapolis and the State Library in Annapolis. Cemetery Records / There is no one central repository for all cemetery records in 1-iaryland. One must contact the individual cemeteries, many of which have a set rate of fees for searcbing their records, Many county historical societies, patriotic groups, or individuals have copied cemetery inscriptions for a particular county. Cemetery inscriptions have been published for Frederick Comity, Dorchester County, Howard County, V/icomico County, southern Anne Arundel County, while typescript compilations. of many, cemeteries exist for Baltimore County, Irince Georges County, and Washington County, 'as well as Harford and Cecil Counties. Cemetery projects are currently being.undertaken in Carroll, Howard, and Baltimore Counties.... &*'\, ^ Church Records Again there is no one central repository for church records in Maryland. One must contact the individual church. However many church records have either deposited tlie originals or had the. originals microfilmed by the Hall of Records, and there are some 200 or more volumes of church registers, or transcripts of church registers, at the Iiaryland Historical Society in Baltimore. Kewspapers / Two major repositories of newspapers are the Maryland Historical Society and the Maryland Department of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, both in Baltimore. The State Library.in Annapolis has some, and individual county historical and genealogical societies may contain collections. / Marriage, death, and other notices of genealogical interest have been abstracted and published for many Haryland ndwspapers by Robert Barnes, F 0 Edward Uright 9 and Thomas L. Hallowak. The Maryland State Department of Education in 1977 published a Guide to Newspapers in Maryland Libraries which detailed the holdings of many public and college libraries.

Keyer, Directory of Genealogical Societies in the U.S.A. and Canada; Third edition, 1980.(A new edition is in progress). 2oth the Guide and the Directory are invaluable aids for anyone wishing to do research in Laryland, and would be worth the purchase price. Both can be * obtained from iiary K. Heyer, Genealogical Reference Librarian at the!-;aryland Historical Society. Getting the Material. '. ' - The best way to get the material desired is to visit the library and/or repository personally and do the research first hand. Since this is not always possible, the next method is to write to the library and ask their fee for looking for a. certain kind of record. Host libraries and the Historical Society are understaffed, and it nay take some t'ime for an answer to come. There will probably be a fee charged for the work. Another method is to write to a local genealogical society and ask if anyone is working on a particular -family, and ask for the information. Sometimes members of the county societies will do limited work for a modest fee, part of which goes to the society and part of t&dch goes to the researcher. A final way is to engage a professional genealogist who may charge a higher fee than the volunteer at the county historical or genealogical society, but who may be able to obtain the records more quickly because of a wider knowledge of sources. Always send a self addressed stamped envelope when writing to anyone as it ensures a quicker response.

47 Baltimore County Genealogical Society The Notebook P. 0. Box Bobert Barnes, Editor Towson, Maryland, Number 16, Sept CITY DIRECTORIES Many people know that the city directory is helpful in locating the names, addresses, and occupations of ancestors, but they are often unaware of the wealth of additional information afforded by the city directories. Front matter and supplemental material may include information on the history of the community, data on numbering of street blocks, names and addresses of churches, with ministers, as well as information on commercial establishments with names of their officers. Your editor was able to determine which Catholic Church was most likely to contain records of a German immigrant family by using the city directories and an atlas of the city. (He found the family in the first church he checked.) It is helpful to know the years that city directories for a given city were published. Dorothea N. Spear compiled Bibliography of American DirectoriesThrough I860. published by the American Antiquarian Society in 19SI7Directories (or Directors as they were some times called) exist for Baltimore City for the years 1752 (broadside); 1796 (Thompson and Walker); 1799 (Mullin); (Warner and Hanna); 1802 (Stafford); 1803 (Stafford); 1804 (Robinson); 1807 (McHenry); 1808 (McHenry?); 1810 (Fry); 1812 (Fry); (Lakin); 1816 (Matchett); (Kennedy); 1819 (Jackson); )Keenan); 1824 (Matchett); 1827; 1829; 1831; 1833; (all by Matchett); 1836 (Lyford); , (Katchett); 1842 (Craig); 1842 (Katchett); 1843 (Craig); 1845 (Murphy); , , , (all by Matchett); (Woods); 1858 (Boyd); (Woods); (Ferslew); i860 (Woods). It is important to read the title page to determine the month through which the directory was corrected. It should also be noted that many directories for large cities contained smaller supplements for neighboring suburban communities. A random sampling of Baltimore City Directories reveleaed that each of the samples contained much additional information. Matchettls Baltimore Director for contained an historical sketch of Baltimore, lists of city officials and their salaries, names and addresses of public buildings, churches, railroad companies, banks (with names of officers), steamboat lines, foreign consuls in Baltimore, insurance offices, and managers of the poor. Matchett*s Baltimore Director for contained topography of Baltimore; a briefer history than appeared in the previous edition; statistics on interments; municipal offices, incumbents and salaries; public buildings with descriptions of the architecture; churches with addresses, descriptions, and names of clergy; sections on theatres, manufacturers, and commerce, and illustrated with engravibgs of Baltimore buildings. Murphyls Baltimore Directory for 1845 included a 12 page sketch of Baltimore; location of the streets, lanes, alleys, courts, and wharves; boundaries of the election wards (most helpful for the census in 1850); names, addresses, and officials of various institutions; newspapers; churches; and courts of Maryland, For additional information on getting the most out of city directories, see Robert Elmer Ward, "The City Directory; A Key to Family History," in Family Heritage, vol. 2, no. 2, April 1979» PP ' QUERIES Need data on dates and places of marriage, places of burial, and parents of the five wives of Thomas Rutledge ( ) who m. 1st (?)

56 Baltimore County Genealogical Society THE NOTEBOOK P. 0. Box Number 20, September 1983 Towson, Maryland, 23L204 Robert Barnes, Editor Do You Have Scottish Ancestry? The following books and articles may be helpful in establishing the origins of your Scottish ancestors* Dean L. HcLetdf "Success in Tracing Your Scottish Ancestors," The Genealogical Helper «January - February 1980, pp. 8-13» has provided an excellent starting point. He begins by listing several helpful books on Scottish genealogy and then gives a list of periodicals. He warns the beginnings researcher of the importance of knowing the jurisdiction under which a given record may be found. He discusses the holdings of major Scottish repositories and gives suggestions as to where various kinds of records might be found. He concludes his article with a flow chart that may help in finding the place of origin of a Scottish emigrant to the New World. Margaret Stuart's Scottish Family History (Bepr. i Baltimore i Genealogiccal Publishing Company, 1983)» contains an excellent bibliography of published and unpublished sources on Scottish families. Under the heading, Lyon family, several references are given to the Lyons of Ohil or Wester Ogle, believed to be the parent stock of the Lyon family of Baltimore County, Maryland. The first part of the book contains an essay by former Lord Lyon King of Arms, James Balfour Paul, on writing a family history. The article also contains explanations of some legal terms and procedures found in Scotland. Gerald Hamilton Edwards, In Search of Scottish Ancestry (Baltimore! Genealogical Oublishing Company, 1980} contains basic record sources, chapters on Scottish surnames, census records, tax lists, and migration. Two books have been published recently that attempt to identify Scottish immigrants and their places of origin, Donald Whyte, A_ Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to the U. S. A. (Baltimore* Magna Charta Book Company j 1972), is an alpiiabetical listing of Scottish settlers giving their names, ages, place of origin and place of settlement. The source of the information is given in an abbreviated form and a fuller citation is given in the bibliography* Sources consulted include American and Scottish publications, family histories, and correspondence from the files of the Scottish genealogical Society. David Dobson's new Directory of Scots Banished to the Ameyican Plantations* (Baltimore «Genealogical Publishing Company, "1983)" does for Scottish prisoners taken after the uprisings of 1?15 and 1?^5 what Peter W. Coldham's books have done for English convict settlers. Dobson has brought to light the transportation of over 3000 Scottish immigrants by going through Scottish legal and prison records. Many of the entries give the names of the parents or specific place of origin of the transportee. These are by no means all of the available sources, but they will be helpful both for the information they present and the clues they give to other sources for the researcher. Passenger List of Convicts The editor came across this list of transported felons in a volume of Baltimore County land records* Idber IS # G, p. 3^» It is a list of servants convicted of crimes in the City of Exon, sentenced to seven years, and transported on.. the Ship Reformation, Philip Wears Commander, and sworn to by Capt.

Meyer's many years of service to the Maryland Historical Society and to genealogists by presenting her with a copy of resolutions thanking her for all her endeavors in genealogy and by giving her a two year membership in the Society* This issue of the Notebook marks the first time a run of 200 copies has been printed. With a membership of over 100 members we will have to ruir at least 200 copies for the forseeable future. It is hoped that part of one page will be devoted.to paid advertisements from professional genealogists, people with books to sell, and perhaps queries from non-members of the Society* The paid advertisements will help to defray the cost of printing* ;The picnic was a huge success, thanks largely to the efforts of Peggy Keigler who'organized the event, and the perseverance of the 25 people who came (some from the Harford County Genealogical Society) on one of the hottest days of the summer. By 6$00 the whole cemetery was copied. Book Reviews Directory for the City ofchicago. Repainted with a New Introduction by Thomas L.

70 Baltimore County Genealogical Society THE NOTEBOOK Post Office Box Number 24, June 1984 Towson, Maryland, Robert Barnes, Editor Evelyn Pearce The Baltimore County Genealogical Society expresses sincere sympathy to the family of Evelyn Pearce, on the loss of their wife, mother, and grandmother. Evelyn was President of the Society from During her tenure the Society became ineorporated, obtained a post office mailing address and a tax-exempt number, and adopted the logo which appears on our stationery. This writer remembers her as a warm and outgoing human being, and wants her family to know we shall miss her. The Society is Moving to a New Meeting Place Since its inception the Society has met in the Baltimore County Public Library in Towson. During that time, we have accumulated mom and more books and papers, and we have not had a permament place in which to keep these records. Beginning with the September 1984 meeting the Society will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall of the Perry Hall United Presbyterian Church, Joppa and Bel Air Roads. He will have the use of a locked bookcase for our valuables, and if the time comes when we can acquire a filing cabinet, we will be able to keep that at the Church also. Although the church is not in the central part of the County, the longer driving distance for some people will be offset by the fact that we do have a place to keep our papers, and there is adequate off street parking on the church parking lot. NOTE - The Seminar, scheduled for October, will still be held at the Towson Library.

71 The Notebook, Number 24 June 1984, p. 2 New Books Clark, Raymond B., Jr., and Donald Odell Virdin, Maryland Genealogies, c.r pp. $9.00. Virdin, Donald Odell, Delaware Genealogies, c.r pp. $5.00. Both books contain lists of published books dealing with genealogies of Maryland or Delaware Families. Books are arranged under the name of the major family discussed, with the author, title, place and date of publication, and number of pages. For books dealing with more than one family there is an index of family names. The volume of Maryland families includes a list of Family Newsletters and a list of collected genealogies. Mr. Clark is well known for his publication of The Maryland and Delaware Genealogist, and is well known to memliers of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society. The two books do not claim to be complete listings but should be of interest. William G. Lefurgy, The Records of a City.i A Guide to the Baltimore City Archives (City of Baltimore, Dept. of Legislative Reference} City Archives and Records Management Office, Baltimore, 1984). 109 PP. $ As the title suggests, this book catalogs the holdings of the Baltimore City Archives. 6l record groups and 9 manuscript collections are discussed. The entry RG 4 Property Tax Records, 1798 to Present, gives a history of the type of record, a summary of the records, with references to related record groups, data on any published materials, and the series of various types of records. Under health department records, RG-19» is a note about two new name indexes* coroner inquest reports, ?, and interment records, The latter records were partially copied and typed by the late William N. Wilkins, but now a complete name index has been prepared. This book, is a must for anyone interested in Baltimore City Records. Mary ELlen Hayward and R. Kent Lancaster, A Guide to the Markers and Burials (of Westminster Presbyterian Cemetery) (Baltimoret Westminster Preservation Trusti 1984). 63 pp. Indexed. This book, made possible by a grant from the Maryland Humanities Council contains a detailed history of the Westminster Church and Burial Ground, and a catalog of all known information about the surviving tombstones and those who are known to be buried there. This reviewer had the plasure of working with Drs. Hayward and Lancaster in preparing for a series of lectures given this spring, and feels that the book (whose price seems to be a well kept secret, even from the authors) is a worthy addition to the literature of cemeteries. Copies may be ordered from the Westminster Preservation Trust, 500 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, Md. If you are interested in Baltimore families, Presbyterians, or graveyards as cultural phenomena you will want to have this book.

73 The Notebook, Number 24 June 1984, p. 4 Newspapers Indexed In December 1983 the Hall of Records sponsored a seminar on the use of newspapers by historians and genealogists, and the program now under way to locate and preserve (on microfilm) many old newspapers. The Baltimore County Public Library in Towson has acquired microfilm copies of extant copies of the Baltimore County Advocate from 1850 to 1864 (with gaps). The editor of the Notebook has indexed the marriages and deaths from the Advocate, with a view to eventual publishing. In the meantime, persons interested in specific families may obtain a list of the names of persons of that name who were married or who died, and the date of the paper containing the account. Armed with this information, the person may visit the Baltimore County Public Library to obtain a full copy of the item from the paper. Please send a SASE for each surname of interest to the editor of the Notebook. Out of town members can obtain the full item for a slight fee.

Summer at the Librariesj The Hall of Records has to close for one hour on Saturdays from 12iOO to ItOO so the staff can go to lunch. If you are going to Annapolis on a Saturday plan to eat your lunch at that time, and stroll around the town. The Hall of Records offers Orientation Tours at 10»30. The staff although overworked is always pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. The Peabody Library In Baltimore is new closed on Saturdays until September. To serve you better, there is now a book where researchers may register their surnames of Interest so that others may contact them. The Peabody Library will lose two staff members due to retirement, and will lose Tom Hollowak for the summer. Tom is going to Poland for a few weeks. Bon voyage, Tom!

74 Baltimore County Genealogical Society THE NOTEBOOK Post Office Box No. 25, September 198 Towson, Maryland, Robert Barnas, Editor CHANGES This issue of The Notebook marks several changes in the life of the Society. First of all/ starting with the September meeting we will be meeting at the Perry Hall United Presbyterian Church, located at the angle of Joppa and Belair Roads. Here we will have a place to keep our books and papers, and while we are not as central ly located as in Towson, we hope that members will find the new meeting place desirable. A second change occurs in this notebook itself. For the first time we are accepting paid advertisements. BCGS Member Prank Cornell son wrote to a number of proffesional genealogists and publishers and solicited advertsiements. While the initial response. was small we hope that more professionals will avail themselves of our services. The funds raised can be used to offset the expense of printing The Notebook. Finally, the feature article begun in this issue will be continued in the next issue. (As always your editor welcomes contributions for publication of any length). BIBLIOGRAPHIES, HANDOUTS, AND LISTS All the^textbooks agree that one of the first things a researcher has to when starting a new problem is to survey the literature to see what has already been done on a particular family 'or perhaps to see what records 'for an area have been published. One of the best ways to do this is to consult oublishers' catalogs, and published bibliographies and archival guides. Publishers like Genealogical Publishing Company, Family Line Publications, Southern Eistc-rical Press and others publish catalogs that let you know what you can obtain from their sales desks. Archival and library guides detail what will be found in a particular repository, and will be the subject of the next article in The Notebook. Bibliographies lists of books, primary sources, and articles found in a variety of libraries can be divided into two types: major published bibliographies, and smaller handouts and lists prepared by speakers for the use of their audiences. The major bibliographies are well known' to most genealogists, so will be mentioned only briefly in this article. Th'ey includes Filby, P. W., American and British Geng'aTogyl and' 7 Heraldry, 3rd edl. pub. by the New Eng. Hist, an^ Gen. Socletyt Filby, P. W., Bibliography of Passenger Lists (Gale).

The idea for compiling a bibliography of bibliographies developed after attending the Mid-Atlantic Genealogical Conference held this July at the Pikeaville Hilton, A number of speakers, especially Peter Craig, Eva Slezak, and Helen Harriss, prepared such fine bibliogra-. phies to go with their talks that it was felt that a listing of such research aids would be. helpful. This listing includes a number of bibliographies prepared from time to time by this editor, the speakers mentioned above, and also some very helpful bibliographies that have been published from time to.time iri The" No'feb'ook/- '. the Maryland cal Magazine, and the' Bttlle'tin' 'o'f 'the' Ma'rVlan'd " In some cases, the compiler" s address is^ given so that persons can write for a copy of the bibliography if they wish.

Order from Ancestry, Inc., P. 0. Box 4?6, Salt Lake City, Utah, This "book is one of the completest, most helpful manuals for genealogical research this reviewer has seen. The work of numerous editors, The Source contains 22 chapters and 10 sections in the appendix, covering such topics not found in other manuals such as institutional records, "business and employment records, city directories, compiled "biographies, sources for Urban Ancestors, and chapters dealing with ethnic -'genealogy (Native American, Spanish and Mexican, Blacks, Asian Americans, Jewish), as well as appendices listing regional federal archives and records centers, selected research libraries, and genealogical book publishers. One of the most helpful features of this book is the attention devoted to bibliographies, which contain not only published books, but periodical literatura as well. So up to data are these bibliographies, that P. William Filby, who wrote the Foreword, noted several entries from December Another helpful feature is the information guide and "Could You Use This Chapter?" found at the beginning of this chapter. These two sections tell you whether this particular chapter will help you find information on a number of subjects* This bock is a must for any genealogical society and library to own, and for any genealogist who takes his research seriously. The publishers of 'rhe_source also offer membership in the Ancestry Research dub.

Robert C, Wiederaenders, Archivist, The ALC, Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, GREEN LAND COMMISSION, 1803 by Lillian Bayly Marks Land Commissions were created by county courts to redefine property boundaries, lost due to the disappearance of the original survey markers. Composed of several prominent citizens, the commission was directed to obtain testimony from local inhabitants familiar with the land concerned. The testimony frequently gave ages, relationships, and other relevant facts about area residents. On 13 December 1802 Isaac Green, mill owner, petitioned the Baltimore County Court for a commission to reestablish the boundaries of his land Come By Chance. The commission was made up of Daniel Bowley, James Ogleby, James Baker, John Partridge, and Robert Porter. The following persons deposed! (April 1803) JOB GARRETTSON, age 6?, stated he "ran the tract" for Joseph Insor, some 40 years ago, mentioned Nicholas Merryman and Thomas Boon. SAMUEL MSRRYMAN, age 81 GEORGE GHILDS, age 70, stated he carried the chain for Moses Barney, the Surveyor MARTICO MERRYMAN, age 50, stated that 22 years ago Samuel Merryman son of Nicholas told him about a pile of rocks. CALEB MERRYMAN, age 45, mentioned Henry Hart, surveyor, some 20 years ago. DAVID SMITHSON, age 40, mentioned Elisha Tyson ISAAC SCOTT, age 28.

Many genealogical how-to books advise beginners to interview first some of their older relatives in order to establish a framework for further research.

Febrsratry 1985* P«* is-ssgsstssii^u only had he and his wife always teen Interested In the relationships and -history of both their families, but their memories accommodated an astonishing amount of such information, most of which could be verified by the author's research* This is the story of Burnam Ledford of Lancaster, Ky., and his wife Addle King Ledford, aged 101 and 93 respectively and married?4 years when tiie author met them. Their forebears had come to Kentucky in The book is much more than a mere genealogy, but it contains much of interest for genealogists. Some researchers have worried that they might be on a wrong trade when they picked up the same surname on both sides of the family. This is not necessarily an error, nor Is it unique* Burnam Ledford *s great-grandfather Aley Ledford, had a son John, who was also Burnam *s great-grandfather on his mother's side... Those who have had soae trouble locating records of Kentucky ancestors should remember that although Kentucky has been a state since 1792 the area was so little developed that sometimes the closest court house for obtaining marriage licenses, or registering wills, was in Virginia. Egerton has attempted to construct a, representative American social history from the patterns of.change and continuity that emerged In the generations of a single middle-class family," and with the help of the Ledfords and their family, has produced a fascinating book. It should give every reader a heightened awareness of the treasures that waste away in the 'minds and memories of the elderly. It is well for us to be reminded that the greatest gift the elderly have to offer their vision of the past is too often unappreciated, neglected, and Ignored.

90 The Notebook, No, 27 Land Records, p. 5 BALTIMORE COUNTY LAND RECORDS OF ? abst. by Louis Dow Scisco The next installment of land records abstracted by Mr. Scisco was published in the Maryland Historical Magazine, vol. 24 (Dec. 1929), PP Scisco describes Baltimore County at this time as a portion of the great colonial frontier. Such a settlement as there was lay along the tidal rivers and creeks of the upper Bay. To the east and west were the'half friendly Indians of the Eastern Shore and the Fascataway. To the north were the Susq.uehannas» and beyond them the Iroquois, who sometimes raided the county. Immigration into the region was still small, but the stream was increasing. The most obvious means of livelihood was tobacco growing, but a smaller number lived by logging, carpentry, and cooperage, and there was a storekeeper or two, and at least one physician. The location of the original records is not known. In their place are two groups of transcripts in which are preserved such portions of the original records as relate to land. The clerks who made the transcripts disregarded the court proceedings and other papers. The summaries given below include all those entries placed on record from September 1665 to the end of 166?. The first group of items come from pp of Liber IS#HC, made about 1?17 by John Stokes. Stokes copied material from several older record books, but appended to each item the folio numbers of the original liber. One of the books copied was Liber 1C # A, which seems to have held the original.court proceedings. 40. Clerk's minute that the court held session on 8 Aug. 1665, commission present being Capt.

These items are here arranged into one alphabetical listing. The original spelling has been retained and in many cases birth dates have been inferred from Jessop's estimate of age at death. The statistics, with some of Jessop's pungent personal comments, were originally published in History Trails, Vol.- 11, No. 1, Autumn 1976, pub. by the Baltimore County Historical Society, which has graciously given permission to Mr. Lynch to republish them here.

97 THE NOTEBOOK, No. 28 May 1985, p. 4 EDITORIAL My two years as President of the Baltimore County Genealogical Society are almost up. I have enjoyed them, and I greet their end with a sigh (and a sigh of relief). The job has been made enjoyable by the great assistance of the other members of the Executive Board, the committee members who have planned field trips, seminars, and picnics, and of course by all the members of the Society, who have been so supportive. We have acquired a permamemnt headquarters (which we may soon outgrow), increased the size of The Notebook, and our membership, and added to our Library Collection, both with books, and a rapidly growing vertical file. We have produced our first computerized surname index, which is already proving invaluable in putting researchers in touch with each other. We have lost some members. Carroll and Evelyn Pearce, and Joe Cromwell were members of the Society from its inception, and we will miss them. Unlike Edward VIII, whose abdication speech signalled the beginning of a lifelong exile, I bid farewell as President but looking forward to continuing as Editor, and as "vertical file curator." I thank you all for your help and support. I know Jean Brandau, the new President, and the nex executive board will receive the same support from you. Thank you and God bless. THE COMPUTERIZED SURNAME INDEX can help you find others working on the same lines or researching in similar areas. Local members can see the Society's copy on our meeting dates. Out of town members can send a SASE to the Editor (9219 Snyder Lane, Perry Hall, Md., 21128) and he will check his copy for the names of others working on the same families, and he will gladly check some of his other surname lists at the same time. Members who have many Baltimore County lines might want to purchase a copy of the members' names and addresses who submitted entries, the surname list, and the listing by locality from Susan Johnston, 104 Park Drive, Catonsville, Md., 21228, for $10.00 which includes postage). + QUERIES GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN MD., WASH., + D.C., SOUTHERN PENNA., AND NORTHERN + Seeking data on the Kitely fam. of VIRGINIA + Balto. and nearby counties: Anne + Willis, 6276 Linkythorn Lane, CAROL PERRY + Clarksville, Md., Apple Tree Court, Frederick, + Seeking to corresp. with people work- Maryland, 21701; phone (301) ing on; BEALMEAR, BELLMEER, BELMAR, BALMIER, BALMAR, etc. Mrs. Dorothy + Powers Elliott, Rt. #1, Box 1A-19, + Muscatine, Iowa, 52761

105 THE NOTEBOOK, Number 29 September, 1985» P«** BOCK REVIEWS BALTIMORE CEMETERIES, VOLUME I I Collected "by th Baltimore County Historical Society, c.r by the Maryland Genealogical Society. 172 pp. Indexed This is the first in a proposed series of volumes of Baltimore County Cemetery Inscriptions to be published by the Maryland Genealogical Society. It contains inscriptions from 6l faadly and church cemeteries in central and northern Baltimore County, copied by the Cemetery Committee of the Baltimore County Historical Society. A surname index adds to the usefulness of the work, T>e entries for each set of inscription include the name of the cemetery, its location, the inscriptions themselves, and the naaie(s) of those who copied the inscription, as well as the date copied. Although the book is recommended two words of caution t first, many of the inscriptions were copied more than ten years ago, and it may be that there have been some recent interments. Second, reading old tombstones is difficult* Numbers can be easily misinterpreted. The researcher should always make an effort to confirm dates of death from other sources. Nevertheless given the fact that tombstones can disappear, whether due to vandalism, developers, or erosion, the Maryland Genealogical. Society has brought out a useful volume, and one that will soon be followed 1?" others. Copies may be ordered from Family Line Publications, ^ Terrace, Oliver Spring, Md., A GUIDE TO GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN CARROLL COUNTY. By the Carroll County Genealogical Society, Westminster* Cranberry Graphics, pp. nisutratedf indexed/ Any genealogical society planning to publish a guide to research in a given county would do well to study this guide. A number of authors, including this reviewer were asked to t?rlte chapters on specific topics, and the book contains chafers on research facilities inside of Carroll County, outside the county, and the cartography, origins, towns, churches, cemeteries, and newspapers of the county. The chapter on towns tells what election district they were in in 1877» a«d what is the date of origin. The chapter on churches lists churches by denomination, gives the name of each church, location, date of establishment, and present address, as well as location of the records. There are a series of maps showing the location of Individual cemeteries. The book is highly recommended for anyone doing research in that area. Copies may be ordered from the Carroll County Genealogical Society, c/o The Carroll 'County Public Library, 50 last Main Street, Westminster, Md., REVOLUTIONARY PATRIOTS OP HARFORD COUNTY, MARYLAND, By Henry C. Peden, Jr., M,A. Bel Air* Bel Air Copy Center, pp. Indexed. The compiler, who was Secretary of the Maryland Society, SAR, , has combed lists of signers of the Oath of Allegiance, militia lists, muster rolls, county histories, genealogical source materials, and records of the Hall of Records, MR, and SAR, to produce what should be a very helpful reference volume on the revolutionary patriots of Harford County. Entries give the patriot's name, details of patriotic and/or military service, and references where the information was obtained. In some instances vital records and names of spouses are given. Over 3600 entries are contained in the book and there is a surname index. As might be expected, there are difficulties in separating individuals of the same name, There were many persons named William Smith and researchers will have to separate them. The book is highly recommended. Copes may be ordered from the author, 707 Bedford Road, Bel Air, Md., 21014, at $25.00 each.

The Bell maps are helpful because they show roads and rivers, giving clues to migration routes in the days before railroads. The second map shows the parish boundaries as they existed In 1832, with a color coded boundary indicating the ecclesiastical jurisdiction in which each parish lay. This latter is Important because It was the ecclesiastical jurisdiction which determined the location of wills. Following the atlas section Is a county by county listing of all parishes, with the location of records in various repositories, whether any entries have been put into the I.G.I., whether any copies of the registers are the Society of Genealogists, whether any of the marriages have been indexed, and finally the grid location of the parish on the maps.

Arps deserves great praise for his patience in abstracting death notices from the Baltimore Sun for the years indicated and this reviewer hopes he will continue. The introduction contains numerous thoughtful comments on the meanings of certain terms in newspaper obituaries, and a list of the abbreviations for common terms used in abstracting the obituaries. Unlike the earlier indices to marriages and death notices in the Sun, this volume contains all the pertinent Information in the death notice. One page revealed references to Alexandria, Va,j Penna.{and Ohloj London} Harford County} Wilmington, Delaware} Wales? and Prince Georges County. Use of this book will not b6 confined to researchers of Baltimore area families, but for the whole state as well.

There is a supplement containing the names, removals,?"xl dissolution of firms which occurred during the time the directory was in progress. The reviewer has a few suggestions for future directories in the series of reprints. The publisher will want to include lists of any abbreviations, and whereever any supplemental matter on locations of streets, public buildings, lists of city officials was included in the originals, this material should be included in the reprint. Finally, it might be interesting to Include a reproduction of the.original title page, if at all possible. Despite these suggestions, the reviewer warmly recommends Baltimore researchers, school librarians, and historians to order a copy of this book, while societies and libraries are also urged to add this to their collection*.
