    1. [SE-KENTUCKY] Monroe Heritage Book
    2. Joyce G. Reece
    3. We first published our MONROE COUNTY, TN HERITAGE BOOK in 1997. We sold over 1,600 books. Over the years we've had many requests for a reprint. Our book has a beautiful hard cover and has 571 pages including a surname index. The book was published with Don Mills, Inc. and printed by Walsworth Publishing. The book will be a reprint so therefore no additional family articles. We are exploring the idea of reprinting the book for the express purpose of donating any proceeds for the benefit of our Monroe County, TN. Archives. As you can see from this site on our newly formed "Friends of the Archives Historical & Preservation Society", our mission is to purchase materials needed for the preservation of our valuable Monroe County records. We are in the process of trying to obtain tax exempt status. Before we can think of reprinting we have to presale a certain amount of books. At this time we are only trying to get an estimate of how many books might sell. When we are reasonably sure that we can sell enough to cover the cost, we'll send out an order form for the pre-sale. www.rootsweb.com/~tnfahps Joy Locke Joyce Gaston Reece -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No virus found in this incoming message.

    1. [SE-KENTUCKY] Searching Irish Wills Before 1858
    2. Margo Spoor
    3. from Fort Wayne Library   Searching Irish Wills Before 1858 by John D. Beatty *************************************** Wills, as every genealogist knows, are an excellent tool for researching one’s ancestry. In the case of Ireland, probate research is considerably more challenging, in part because the original copies of most early wills were burned in 1922 during the Public Record Office fire. However, not all wills were lost. Sometimes the originals were copied by genealogists, and those abstracts survive. In other cases, Irish lawyers or solicitors made copies of wills for court cases, and those copies have since been deposited in either the National Archives of Ireland or in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. Furthermore, many indexes of wills survive, so that even if the full text of a will is no longer extant, it is at least possible to determine whether a will for your ancestor once existed. Irish wills were filed in two kinds of ecclesiastical courts before 1858, because the official Church of Ireland had jurisdiction over probate matters. When someone died and all of their property holdings were contained in a single diocese, the will was probated in that diocesan court. If the testator had holdings of sufficient value in more than one diocese, the will was probated in a prerogative court. The majority were of the former category. A useful “Index to Irish Wills” (941.50004 P54i), edited by Phillimore and Thrift, lists diocesan wills from the seventeenth century through 1858. This five-volume set is divided by diocese and arranged alphabetically by testator. Volume 1 covers Ossory, Leighlin, Ferns, and Kildare. Volume 2 covers the combined Diocese of Cork and Ross, as well as Cloyne. Volume 3 includes Cashel and Emly, Waterford and Lismore, Killaloe and Kilfenora, and Limerick, Ardfert, and Aghadoe. Volume 4 covers Dromore, Newry, and Mourne. Volume 5 covers Derry and Raphoe. A number of other dioceses are not represented in the series. Wills from the Diocese of Dublin through 1800 are indexed in the “Appendix to the Twenty-sixth Report of the Deputy Keeper of the Public Records” (941.50004 Ir216p), while a similar “Appendix to the Thirtieth Report” indexes those from 1800-1858. Prerogative wills are listed in Arthur Vicars’ “Index to the Prerogative Wills of Ireland, 1536-1810” (941.5004 V66in). Some wills also were recorded in the Registry of Deeds, and those dating from 1708 to 1832 have been abstracted in P. Beryl Eustace’s three volume “Abstracts of Wills” (941.50004 Ir24r). Be sure to check online in the new e-Catalogue of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (www.proni.gov.uk) or in the Origins Network’s “Irish Wills Index 1484-1858,” to which the Genealogy Center subscribes, to see if an abstract of a will exists. Many of the prerogative wills were abstracted by Sir William Betham and are available on microfilm from the Family History Library. Finally, John Grenham’s handy guide, “Tracing Your Irish Ancestors” (941.5 G865t), provides a list of additional sources for surviving will indexes and abstracts. Margaret Spoor

    1. [SE-KENTUCKY] Rebecca Fannin or Fannon b. about 1850
    2. I’m seeking help to find a clue to the second marriage of my great-grandmother. I’ve tried just about everything I can think of and failed to find anything past 1877. Rebecca Fannin was born in 1850 in Wayne County, now West Virginia. Her parents were Silas and Polly (Ferguson) Fannin. The name is often spelled "Fannon." The marriage was recorded in Wayne County Marriage Records 8 August 1868, "Rebecca Fannon, 18, daughter of Silas M. Fannon, married Reece Workman, 18, son of M. and E. Workman, married by H. Smith." Reece took my grandfather and abandoned Rebecca before 1874. She divorced him in Wayne in 1877. Family told that she "remarried and moved away." After her divorce, she may have taken her maiden name back (Rebecca Fannin), or because she had a son and didn’t know where he was, she could have retained her first married name (Rebecca Workman). I have personally searched the probate records in Wayne County and if she left a note where she could be contacted, it was where it should have been. Siblings of Rebecca were: Theodore, Easton, Jeremiah, John, Thomas, George, Mary, Celistia, and William. John married in Wayne County then went to Johnson County to raise his family. He died at Odds, Johnson, Ky. In 1923. Thomas married and went to Ashland, Boyd, Ky. To live where he died in 1940. Celistia married in Catlettsburg and died there about 1892. William’s widow Malinda (Osborne) Fannin was listed in the Johnson County 1900 Kentucky Census. So it is very possible that Rebecca with her second husband moved to Kentucky, possibly Boyd or Johnson County. ____________________________________________________________ Become a Medical Transcriptionist.

    2. Margo Spoor
    3. Preservation Tip of the Month--Repairing Tears by Becky Schipper *************************************** There are two types of tears, clean cut and bevel. Clean cut tears require tape to hold the two sides of the tear together. Beveled tears have overlapping surfaces that can be bonded together with adhesive. Mending with Transparent Tape (Clean Cut Tears): Use Document Repair Tape, Filmoplast Tape, or Scotch #811 Magic Removable Tape. These tapes are *not recommended* for rare books or valuable documents, which should be repaired by a conservator. Cut tape 1/4 in. longer than the tear. Center it over the tear. Rub with a bone folder working toward the outer edge of the item. If the tear goes to the edge of a page fold a minute amount of tape over the edge. Mending with Adhesive (Bevel Tears): Always use a pH neutral adhesive. Place a piece of wax paper under the document or page being mended. Lift one side of the tear and brush a thin coat of adhesive onto the exposed edge. Align the edges of the tear. Wipe away any excess adhesive. Place a second sheet of wax paper on top, weight it and let it dry. Margaret Spoor

USCIS maintains historical records documenting the arrival and naturalization of millions of immigrants who arrived in the United States since the late 1800s or and naturalized between 1906 and 1956. Until today, the process to request these records was handled through a Freedom of Information Act / Privacy Act (FOIA) request. ... Individuals may submit genealogy records requests by using the new forms, G-1041 -Genealogy Index Search Request, and G-1041A - Genealogy Records Request. Both forms are available on the new USCIS Genealogy Program page at: http://www.uscis.gov/genealogy . The fees include: Genealogy Index Search - $20 Copy of a File on Microfilm - $20 Copy of a Textual File Copy - $35 ============================================================== Genealogy Index Search: USCIS will search its historical immigration and naturalization index for citations relating to a specific immigrant using information about an individual provided by the researcher. In order to search for an individual, they must have a date of birth more than 100 years ago or you must provide proof of death to USCIS. You will be provided with any record citations that the search uncovers, along with directions for ordering files from USCIS or the National Archives (NARA). Copy of a File: Researchers with valid record citations to USCIS file numbers will be able to request copies of historical files. The records that USCIS will be making available through this program are: Naturalizations Certificate Files (C-files) - - from September 27, 1906 to April 1, 1956; Alien Registration Forms from August 1, 1940 to March 31, 1944; Visa files from July 1, 1924 to March 31, 1944; Registry files from March 2, 1929 to March 31, 1944; Alien Files (A-files) numbered below 8 million (A8000000), and documents within those files dated prior to May 1, 1951. ============================================================== Back to top Reply to sender | Reply to group | Reply via web post Messages in this topic (1) Create New Topic | Visit Your Group on the Web Messages | Files | Photos | Database | Members Change settings via the Web (Yahoo!

    3. [GenealogyGems] Genealogy Gems: News from the Fort Wayne Library, No. 52, June 30, 2008 Civil War Headstones by Melissa Shimkus ************ ********* ********* ********* Have you lost your soldier? Tracing an individual after the Civil War can sometimes be a harrowing experience. During the War many soldiers realized there were other areas of the country to be explored. Later, with westward expansion and the desire to own land, some of these men moved their families. If you have a lost Civil War soldier after the war, "Card Records of Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, ca. 1879-ca. 1903" (NARA microfilm publication M-1845) may help you locate him. After the Civil War, the Office of the Quartermaster General established a Cemetery Branch. The Cemetery Branch was primarily in charge of creating and maintaining national military cemeteries. Congress decided on March 3, 1873 to allow honorably discharged Civil War veterans to be buried in national military cemeteries. Six years later, in 1879, the Act was broadened so veterans buried in private cemeteries could receive government headstones. This microfilm set consists of twenty-two reels containing records arranged alphabetically by surname then given name. The records are for those soldiers who fought for the Union and died between 1861 and 1903. Some War of 1812 Veterans can be located on this film as well. These records can be helpful to those who have lost a Civil War soldier because of the specific information provided concerning the individual and his headstone. The soldier's name, rank, company, regiment, and date of death are provided. The burial information given is the cemetery name, town or county, and state. For example, Charles Amick died January 24, 1877. A former private in the Michigan Cavalry, he was buried at Breedsville Cemetery, located in the town of Breedsville, Van Buren County, Michigan. Although Harry Baker served as a Private in Company K of the 24th Wisconsin Infantry, he was buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado after his death on February 10, 1903. The microfilmed "Card Records of Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, ca. 1879-ca. 1903" is a source worth the attention of Union Civil War researchers. It offers additional evidence of an ancestor's wartime service and supplies genealogical information. The record is especially useful in providing a burial location for soldiers who may have migrated. An index and viewable images of the more than 166,000 cards on this microfilm set is also available now online at Ancestry.com for those who have access to that subscription website.
