New Ancestry.com Record Collections since 1 January 2013

I try to keep up with the new and updated record collections provided by Ancestry.com on a regular basis by checking http://www.ancestry.com/cs/reccol/default.

Here are the record collections that are NEW to Ancestry.com since 1 January 2013:

*  Scioto County, Ohio, Marriage Records, 1803-1860
*  Web: Montgomery County, Tennessee, Delayed Birth Certificates, 1868-1954
*  U.S., Deaths in the U.S. Naval Service, 1861-1867
*  U.S., County and Regional Histories and Atlases, 1804-1984
*  Kentucky, Naturalization Records, 1906-1991

*  Louisiana, Naturalization Records,1836-2001
*  Kansas, Naturalization Abstracts, 1864-1972
*  North Carolina, Naturalization Records, 1872-1996

*  Web: Warren County, New Jersey, Obituary Index, 1848-1914

*  U.S., Descriptive Lists of Colored Volunteer Army Soldiers, 1864
*  U.S., Register of Colored Troop Deaths During the Civil War, 1861-1865
*  U.S. Virgin Islands, Danish West Indies Slave Records, 1672-1917 (in Danish)

*  Kansas, Grand Army of the Republic Post Reports, 1880-1940

I thought that when I copy/pasted them, the links would copy also.  They didn't.  You will have to go to the New/Updated page, or the Card Catalog (enter the title in the "Title" search field) to access a specific record collection.

The one that intrigues me is the U.S., County and Regional Histories and Atlases, 1804-1984 collection.  There may be many goodies in that collection - histories, biographies, maps, etc.

This is just my 2 cents, but every time I get a hint of this kind, I ignore it. It's just a waste of time and effort.

I've been posting weekly updates of both Ancestry.com and Familysearch.org 'updates and additions' on my blog for quite a while now. There is a trick to getting the links on Ancestry.com. You have to click through the link and copy and paste the title and url from the next page to create the link in your post. It can be very time-consuming.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting this, Randy. I constantly check the updated collections on Family Search, but for some reason I've never thought of doing the same for Ancestry. I've included your tip on my Friday Favorites, too!
