Back From Salt Lake

I've returned from the Family History Library in Salt Lake. We had a great trip, but I'm looking forward to getting back to writing and working on the newsletter. In between working with trip participants, I made scans of documents--saving the analysis until I got home as there simply was not time to do everything.

Some of the things I scanned included:

  • Emmar Sargent's marriages
  • Emmar Sargent's will--not very helpful, but I still found it
  • Susannah Rucker deeds from 1769 and a few years before and after
  • Blain-Reed tax lists entries from 18th century New Jersey
  • Several Harford County, Maryland deeds from late 1700s and early 1800s
  • Revolutionary War Pension file for John Blane in New Jersey
  • Land and personal property tax records for the Butlers in St. Clair and St. Joseph, Counties in Michigan
  • Marriage records in New Brunswick on my Neill family about 1865
  • Probate and inventories from Harford County, Maryland
  • and more
I quit using my flash drive while scanning and emailed things to a special email account at gmail. Then the cover message included notes, comments to myself, and a list of things I noticed while scanning that I was afraid I would forget.

Stay tuned.
