Access Free Genealogy

AccessGenealogy.com contains one of the largest collections of free genealogy for your United States research. Find hundreds of thousands of free websites with billions of names you can use to further your family genealogy! Specifically, we provide sources for birth records, death records, marriage records, census records, tax records, church records, court records, military records, historical newspapers, cemeteries, and ethnic records. We also provide some historical details about different times and people in America’s history. Our specialty, however, is Native American genealogy and research. You can always access our Native American collection of material, by using the link at the top of every page.

Access Genealogy directs researchers to free United States genealogy resources online. We do this in two methods, by categorizing your search (links in the menu at the top of every page) or by enabling you to search by locality (links on the right of every page under the US Genealogy heading).

Our search is found on the right of every page, but remember it only searches our website, and not the hundreds of thousands we link to. It also doesn’t search our databases. You will need to search those one-by-one.

New London: A History of its People

Title:New London: A History of its PeopleAuthor:Carmelina Como KanzlerPublication date:1996Publisher: Digitizing Sponsor:Internet ArchiveContributor:Allen County Public Library Genealogy CenterRepository:Internet Archive Read Book Download Book New London – A History of its People Introduction My expectations for this book were clear from the beginning. I had a theme running in my head and a vision in mind’s eye. However, I must admit that the end result was far more than I envisioned. The history was to be about the different people that lived in New London beginning with the Native Americans who first inhabited this land, and continuing with those that arrived later.…

Shain LibraryContributor:Charles E. Shain LibraryRepository:Internet Archive Read Book Download Book Black Roots in Southeastern Connecticut, 1650 – 1900 Forward In the process of compiling the material for BLACK GENESIS (Detroit: Gale Research Co., 1978) it became apparent that one specific form of genealogical research was necessary in reconstructing the ancestry of blacks in the United States. That specific form is collecting and collating every scrap of material which can be found on all the blacks in a defined geographical area. While this…

History of Chester, New Hampshire, including Auburn

In preparing for the 200th anniversary, in 1922, of the founding of the Town of Chester, a general desire was expressed that events which had occurred since 1869, together with the earlier ones which Benjamin Chase was unable to include in his History of Old Chester, should be published in suitable form. The History of Old Chester published in 1869 covered the ground so thoroughly that there is comparatively little to add. Since that time the town has not been making history to any great extent, shrinkage in population and prestige being the most prominent incidents of the last half-century,…

History of old Chester from 1719 to 1869

In my youth I was accustomed to hear my father, and other aged people, relate the incidents of olden time, in which I was always interested, and therefore remembered. When Dr. Charles Bell’s “Facts in Relation to the History of Chester” appeared in the seventh volume of the N. H. His. Soc. Coll., it was so small in compass, containing little or nothing respecting the Long-Meadows, I thought of collecting and preserving the traditional history of that part of the town. Upon mentioning the subject to the Hon. Samuel D. Bell, he insisted that we should have a history of…

Bentleysville

Bentleysville was a rural community of three hundred persons in southwestern Pennsylvania in 1868. It had grown around a mill that Sheshbazzar Bentley Junior and Senior operated on the southern branch of Pigeon Creek. Its history is short because as a country village it existed less than a century. The events are substantially in chronological order, beginning with the settlers over the mountains in 1750 and ending after the Centennial in 1916.

Perry sesquicentennial, Erie, Pa., May 29-Sept. 10, 1963

morated the 150th Anniversary of the Building of Perry’s Fleet and the historical Battle of Lake Erie. Oliver Hazard Perry’s victory still ranks as the proudest moment in the history of our country. The results of this victory set the pattern for the establishment of borders between the United States and Canada; borders which, even today, remain un-patrolled in the spirit of the close and friendly relations between our two countries.

The William Wade Hinshaw index to Pennsylvania Quaker meeting records

Middlebury College Online Digital Archives

Nestled between Lake Champlain and a portion of the Green Mountains lies a Liberal Arts college of National repute, Middlebury College.

Letters from the Middlebury College Online Digital Archives

As I was creating the page for the Middlebury College Online Digital Archives it quickly became obvious that a separate page would be needed for those letters that have been digitized. Some of these are specific to the college, however, many others are from Vermont families. I have not attempted to remove the college specific letters in this list. Robinson Family letters at Rokeby MuseumThe Robinson Family letters from Rokeby Museum represent several generations of Quaker families in Vermont, especially the Robinsons – a family of farmers, abolitionists, artists, and authors whose home in Ferrisburgh is now a National Historic…

Photos from the Middlebury College Online Digital Archives

As I was creating the page for the Middlebury College Online Digital Archives it quickly became obvious that a separate page would be needed for those photographs identified with a person’s name. It is unfortunate that those posting took two different avenues, as some photographs are listed by the first name, some by the last name. I have listed each group as they appear below. Please make sure you check both listings for your ancestor if they attended the school, or had other interaction with the school. People Listed by First Name A A.
