Table of Contents of Everton's Genealogical Helper - November/December 2008 Issue

I missed posting this three months ago - the November-December 2008 issue of Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine (Volume 62, Issue XI). The Table of Contents includes:


page 10 - Musings and Gleanings from the World of History and Genealogy, by Richard Hooverson. Mr. Hooverson writes about “the other places” where folks arrived in New York City as well as Ellis Island, political animals, 1968, and early scrapbooking.

page 16 - The Hereditary Order of the Families of the Presidents and the First Ladies of America, by Margaret Moen. In this election season, Margaret writes about a hereditary society directly related to presidential ancestry.

page 20 - Finding My Father, by Daniel J. Burns. Mr. Burns tells of the search for his father, and reminds us to “never believe everything you hear.”

page 24 - Be Cautious When Using Deed Indexes, by Jennifer Sheppard. Jennifer writes an interesting article about the possible pitfalls of deed index research.

page 26 - Using Research Statements, by Robert D. Hennon. The late Robert Hennon proposes a few ideas that may improve your chances of locating your ancestors.
