Virginia Revolutionary "Publick" Claimsby Janice Luck Abercrombie and Richard Slatten
As Continental forces and Virginia militia units were engaged in winning independence, American quartermasters and provisioners struggled to provide these units with all the necessities of life, from meals and guns to meat, fodder for horses, the horses themselves, firewood, and every other type of material. Much of this was requisitioned from the civilian population and certificates were issued payable in either continental or state funds, depending on the units supplied, upon presentation to court authorities. Thousands of these certificates issued to Virginians were duly entered by the courts, and they provide a fascinating insight into the period of the Revolution. These "Publick" Claims booklets contain interesting and useful information about the contributions of ordinary people to the Revolutionary War. They provide some details of people's service in the militia or as guards for prisoners of war; they indicate where some bodies of troops were at particular times; and they identify providers of horses, wagons, cattle, grain, or other supplies. Much of the information in these booklets cannot be found anywhere else, which makes the surviving records particularly valuable. Also remarkable is the fact that records survived from virtually every county in the state at that time with the exception of the newly formed Kentucky counties. This makes the collection even more valuable in covering areas which heretofore in this time period have suffered from a lack of personal data.

Research Methods to Help You

Research Methods to Help You



Methods to help you have the results you seek

1.   Record Keeping is Critical
2.  Timeline is a boost for research
3.  Know your Census’s Difference
4.  Go back to where you were before and recheck for new data, especially FamilySearch.org.
5.   Do not waste steps  : > )


Do you wonder what that statement means?   

1    1.  When doing census research always, check page before and after page your looking at for more kin.  Save if some are there.  I was taught 20 up 20 down but since have learned page before and page after saves time, verses having to go back.

2.  When researching a book. Make sure your using the Research Log, with page date, name, title, library affiliate etc. Just in case you find a link to more people involved in that family. Always use your Research Log,      :   >  )           

3.  Same applies for Online Research, catalogue it and be able to quickly go back to  reinforce or gather more information.

4.  Do not be afraid of Archive Research, I have found it the most fun of all the research events I have done. 

5.  Become aware of what inhabitants created the state your researching, makes a difference to what the library will have in it’s archives. 

Do you know what Cluster Research is?

Have you tried it?

We will next  talk on Cluster Research, whether it be American or European.  Have You Tried It?

Ohio Hints and Tips

As I wandered off to my go to first site, I came across some interesting side bar research.

Ohio Research Exchange Project

OHGenWeb
The site is listed different than many but I am finding much data to be garnered here.
County Formation Maps, Ohio Vital Records, Ohio History,  GNIS for land features and historical places.

A message board system & Ohio Civil War Veterans Burial Database, yes so cool to see this.

Ohio-L Mailing List something everyone researching in Ohio or near Ohio borders should be using.

Ohio Family group sheets are here for those whom have turned them in.  The Underground Railroad Association,  Life on the Ohio and Erie Canal, much data about the Civil War is listed in various groups. Census information, familysearch.org, and the Ohio State  Library Genealogy Blog.

I have highlighted some of the sources listed here for research and use and knowledge.

They say they are on Facebook, that I have missed will go find it.

Some data from under LDS site Family Search is here
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1681000
Ohio, Deaths and Burials 1854 to 1997.

More Maryland Records, Early Frederick County, Maryland

After scanning a link I had saved some years back I discovered that some of the Society's surnames are
repeated often in some of these files.

Having no knowledge if there is any connection I still wanted to make the group aware of what may be a help in their research.

County Records - Mid Maryland Roots

This is not the master page of this Maryland site.

Some very interesting things to read if your looking for family early to current.

Why am I here, because a tax list in Greene Co. PA said when Henry Huffman/Hoffman filled it out that he was born in Maryland.  We know his father was John Huffman.

What was interesting was I was reading early Wills and there was mention of Cumberland Co., PA and the Myers that we are tracking also.  I even found reference to a Blessing.  Wonders never cease.

Due to cousins serious illness, I do not recall if this John Huffman who died in 1820's listed here in is her direct line.  We do have John, George and Henry as siblings in documents. I have since found that Rudolph was sibling also.  These were large families and some were scattered and some were close.

So for  those looking remember this neck of the woods, it was early Prince George's County before 1748.

www.MidMdRoots.com 


Reading the Equity Court Records, is much like reading a Will book.  You can find family links with in the documents from various land movements via sales or death or both.


Frederick Counties Equity Abstracts are from 1815 to 1950's Wills from 1748 to 1946.

Washington Co. Will Abstracts partial, Carroll Co. Will Abstracts partial.

Even seen this link  All goes to the  www.MidMdRoots.com site.  What another great site for Maryland Research, which boundaries into VA and PA remember that when researching.

Are you aware of Georgia Pioneers?

This site is great for Georgia Research.  I use many but this is a fun one.

Have you tried it? Genealogy and Images of Wills, Estates, Marriages for the State of Georgia
 Make sure you scan down the full page and do not miss the other related urls in your research needs.
Yes, this site comes with a price but it is very reasonable for what is offered.

additional information here.

Lost Generations: Miller Co. GA Genealogy, Wills, Estates

Do not forget usgenweb.org   and Georgia.

familysearch.org for Georgia

Also want to pass on Judy Russell's topic today.  Click here to read.

Gathering Maryland Data, Are you ready for Maryland ?

Some years back I did major  research in Maryland files looking  for family names. I am a Duvall, descendant of Moreen Duvall. I am a Jones descendant from Cpt William Jones, daughter Elizabeth.

I am descendant of a Hoffman from  Maryland, listed on a tax list in 1805.  I know they were in Virginia much earlier.  When the land sold in 1805 it was what one brother sold to the other in Virginia records.  Earlier  times kept people in close contact and distant both. Newspapers reported more information on the people than today.  A lost cow, a broken wagon with injuries, a flood that caused major need of neighbors help all were reports in the papers. They covered more than a hundred miles many times and neighbors in others.  Ads are great for information verses the stories. Do not forget to look at the ads in the papers.

I have a book started on Maryland but it is on older computer.  One day soon I will resurrect it.

Another bit of news for you all on Maryland.  It has an extensive list of societies, both historical and genealogical.  It has data on Census, Vital Records and the list goes on.Maryland Genealogy Societies
