DC: VT Newspapers. GSV: Index to VT Newspapers. The Vermont Department of Libraries and the University of Vermont published A Union List of Vermont Newspapers in Oct 2000. This publication provides an alphabetical list of all known Vermont newspapers, with dates of publishing (where known), along with repositories and their holdings, whether on microfilm or in print version. The Dept. of Libraries also has, at their Montpelier location, a card file listing newspapers by locality. This is an extremely helpful aid for those wishing to research a particular area in a particular year. For example, a death in a community might be noticed in a number of nearby newspapers; the Union List of Vermont Newspapers, being alphabetically arranged by title, does not make an easy task of locating those newspapers.

The following index lists all newspapers in A Union List of Vermont Newspapers by locality, along with the dates of publication, where known. In many cases the publishing location is not noted in the union list. Robert M. VT Digital Newspaper Project. Your resource for Vermont’s historic digitized newspapers!

Making a Genealogy Map Using the Google Maps API. Introduction I wanted to try out using the Google Maps API for a project, so I decided I’d try to use it in conjunction with some genealogy data to see what I could come up with. The result is a family tree which is mapped out spatially rather than chronologically; once rendered, the following visual data is revealed: Migration paths - see where particular people suddenly moved a large distance Geographical density/immobility - see which areas the most family members were from Most popular places - see which villages or cities successive generations lived in Example Click on the image below to view a live example of the project (using real data from my family tree) and then read on for an explanation of how the program works: Features Google Maps features: Pan and zoom around the map using AJAX technology Switch to vector mapping, satellite mapping or hybrid maps Program features: By way of compromise, it is possible to adjust the zoom level via a variable at the top of the program though.

One of the most important genealogical collections, the American Genealogical-Biographical Index, or AGBI, is the equivalent of more than 200 printed volumes. This database contains millions of records of people whose names have appeared in printed genealogical records and family histories. With data from sources largely from the last century, each entry contains the person's complete name, the year of the biography's publication, the person's state of birth (if known), abbreviated biographical data, and the book and page number of the original reference.

In addition to family histories, other genealogical collections are indexed. These include the Boston Transcript (a genealogical column widely circulated), the complete 1790 U.S. Federal Census, and published Revolutionary War records. The most recent update to this database reflects the inclusion of volumes 196-206. For researchers of American ancestors, this can be one of the most valuable databases available at Allen County Library Genealogy Center. By Delia Happy Mother’s Day! For many children, this is the day you call, send a card or take your mother a gift.

If you are a mother, this is the day your small children bring flowers from your garden and your adult children brave every other family in the country to take you out to eat. But Mother’s Day actually has an interesting history with roots in the Civil War. Ann Reeves was born in Virginia in 1832. Elsewhere in the country, temperance groups were also promoting a day to honor mothers who should band together to fight the demon liquor, but they had no connections specifically to Ann’s activities.

Two years later, Ann’s daughter Anna Jarvis, organized a private memorial service for her mother, and in 1908, two public services were held. In the following years, Anna continued to promote a day to recognize mothers and their contribution to civilization, and to promote peace by honoring women who had lost or were at risk of losing sons in military conflicts.

Explore Historical Newspaper Archives Online | FamilySearch: US Migration Internal. Value of Migration Research Mountains, forests, waterways, and the gaps between them channelled migration into predictable settlement patterns. Events like gold or land rushes, and Indian treaties also affected settlement. Understanding the transportation systems available to ancestors can help genealogists better guess their place of origin. Connect the place where an ancestor settled to the nearby canals,waterways, trails, roads, and railroads to look for connections to places they may have lived previously. Migration research may help you discover: a place of origin, previous hometown, or place where an ancestor settled biographical details such as what they experienced, or with whom they traveled on their journey clues for finding other records Types of U.S.

Actual lists of travelers are unusual. Censuses, directories, land and property records, plat maps, tax records, and voting registers can sometimes be used to learn where new arrivals settled.

Irish Genealogy News: TIGS transcribes NY burial records with place of origin. A unique and valuable new resource has resulted from a project managed by Troy Irish Genealogy Society (TIGS): transcriptions of 12,731 records from the recently rediscovered interment book for St John's Cemetery in Albany, NY.

Just under one third (3,895) of the records relate to Irish-born individuals and, remarkably, all but 500 entries identify the county from which they originate. This collection, which contains records from 1841 to the late 1880s, could throw open the research doors to many Americans descended from Irish immigrants who fled the famine. Here's a breakdown of the Irish identified in the interment records with their home county in Ireland: The records, along with further details of the cemetery and how the book was rediscovered, are freely searchable on the Troy Irish Genealogy Society website.

In genealogy we usually concentrate on surnames since they are the most important way of identifying people who are related. A surname is usually inherited and, while it may be changed, some form of it is usually retained. Given names are more important in a way because they represent a voluntary choice by the parents or, sometimes, by an individual. A name is usually not given lightly. It represents thought and feelings and can be significant to the researcher. Naming Patterns You will often see the same names used over and over again in families. While certain names are popular in different areas in different times in history, the repetition could represent a pattern. You will probably see names of parents and grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles repeated, but not in any strict order. Frequency Even if the family did not follow this strict pattern, the repetition of names can be significant, especially if there is an unusual name.
