* U.S. Federal Census - 1880 Schedules of Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes
* Vermont Birth Records, 1909-2008
* Vermont Marriage Records, 1909-2008
* Vermont Death Records, 1909-2008
* Connecticut Divorce Index, 1968-1997
Those are the first real United States records added (not updated) since Delaware births, marriage and death records over one month ago.
I was eager to look at the Vermont databases because they hold the promise of adding significant content to my Seaver database. Here is the search result for "Seaver" in the Vermont Births 1909-2008 database:
There are 126 entries in the Births database alone. I have many Vermont Seaver families gleaned from census records and Social Security Death Index, but these databases will help my "Seaver surname collection" tremendously.

I clicked on the "View record image" and saw:
* Town or city = Williamstown
Besides the child's name, birth date and birthplace, the mother's maiden name was new for me (I only had Inez B. from a census record) and her birthplace was new for me also.
I kept my FTM 16 database open while I was browsing through the Vermont births, and used two open windows to enter data directly from the Vermont birth record into the database entry for the child:
Lastly, I took the source citation from the record and input it into the source field in the database for the birth of Allen Wendell Seaver. I wonder if he is still alive? I guess I'll find out in the Vermont death records, assuming he still lives in Vermont.
