NGSQ Table of Contents - March 2008 Issue

The March 2008 issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (Volume 96, Number 1) was received last week. The Table of Contents includes:


* "Clara V. Moore and Carrie Peterson: Proving a Double Enumeration in the 1910 Census" by J.H. Fonkert, CG - page 5

* "Identifying the Children of David Pugh and Nancy Minton of Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee" by Daniela Moneta, CG - page 13

* "Tracking Basil Williams of Maryland and Pennsylvania through Changing Residences and Multiple Marriages" by Nicki Peak Birch, CG - page 23

* "Using French-Canadian Catholic Parish Records to Establish a Missing Kinship Relationship" by George L. Findlen, CG - page 39

* "Tying Together Indirect Evidence: Finding Frederick Drollinger's Father" by Kay Germain Ingalls, CG - page 47.


* "The Tennesseetown Manuscript Census: A Legacy for Topeka, Kansas, Exoduster Descendants" by Mary Mall - page 53


* "Gaddis Family Bible" - page 38

REVIEWS - page 65.


* "Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Applications" - page 22


* "Which Marriage was Legal!" - page 64.


The Sidelight article illustrates a very complicated problem on one page. My thought was "I'm sure glad that I didn't have to sort that one out!" What an amazing document they found in the Civil War Pension Files that illustrates several cases of "marriage" without the convenience of divorce.

This issue had excellent articles that touched on different record types illustrating difficult research problems in several localities. It's no surprise that most articles are written by Certified Genealogists. Reading these articles provides excellent food for thought about my own research problems, and those of my colleagues.
