With good humor, stories, and true experiences, the author takes you on an adventure. This adventure will explore your family's past through the original records kept by your relatives as they arrived, set up a home on a piece of land, paid taxes to protect it, went to court to defend it, and often died to preserve it for their loved ones. Along the way, you'll enjoy stories written about your ancestors by their friends and associates who included them in their journals, histories, and newspaper articles.
Digging Deeper is more than a reference book for genealogists, family historians, and reference librarians. It is an instruction manual for any family historian. Using Internet and computerized databases as a jumping-off point, you can find jewels of evidence in other less-commonly used records--those valued for the secrets they reveal about long-forgotten families.
Digging Deeper is an intermediate genealogy guidebook that explains how to:
Read early handwritten documents,
Draw evidence from tax, probate, newspaper, and periodical sources,
Connect with your ancestors using military pre-service, service, and benefit records,
Use cemetery, pre-1850 federal and state population records, and census substitutes,
Prove lineages through original land grants, patents, and Federal Public Domain records,
And combine information from the above records with insights gleaned from historical documents.
