Genealogical Encyclopedia of the Colonial Americas

gpc5176Genealogical Encyclopedia of the Colonial Americas: A Complete Digest of the Records of All the Countries of the Western Hemisphere is the most comprehensive collection of information on colonial period records covering the entire Western Hemisphere, both North and South America. As far as I know, there is no other single reference for records sources covering the colonial periods for the entire hemisphere.

This book examines the colonial period from the earliest European colonization in the Western Hemisphere until:

  • the American Revolution for the thirteen colonies
  • statehood was obtained for other U.S. states
  • Latin American countries which did not declare independence from Spain and Portugal until 1808 or later
  • Caribbean countries and dependencies through about 1810
  • the abolition of the slave trade, for slavery related records, including dates of emancipation

For each country, the author Christina K. Schaefer, provides an historical background and brief sketches of the records themselves, plus descriptions for the principle holding of the major repositories. Record groups are broken down into similar categories for each country. Common sections include church and ecclesiastical records, census records, notarial records, governmental and municipal records, military records, land records, etc. A list of suggested readings rounds out each chapter.

At 814 pages, this reference is indeed extensive. It may be literally impossible to cover every possible resource in a single project. Still, Schaefer has provided a treasure trove of information vital to genealogical record finding. If you need colonial period records for anywhere in the Americas, this book can help.

Growing Need for International FamilySearch Indexers

The following news release was received from FamilySearch.org:

More than 120 projects are currently available from countries outside the U.S., representing 16 languages. Since the first of the year, new projects have been launched from Bolivia, Paraguay, Switzerland, and the Philippines. Later this year, FamilySearch indexing plans to release projects for Armenia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Micronesia, Panama, Slovakia, and Sri Lanka. More indexers with non-English language expertise are needed to help make these records searchable online.

Join this exciting community effort to make records searchable online and ensure our ancestors are remembered by visiting indexing.familysearch.org.

FamilySearch Adds Indexing Projects for Paraguay, Panama, Bolivia, and Slovakia – Indexers Needed!

The following news release was received from FamilySearch.org:

10 New Digital Images of Historic Documents Created Every Second – Indexing Projects Added for Paraguay, Panama, Bolivia, and Slovakia!

Since 2006, FamilySearch has dramatically improved its ability to scan and convert microfilmed records into digital images. In addition, more than 185 digital camera crews are now at work throughout the world, capturing images six days a week. Between microfilm digital conversions and new field captures, FamilySearch now creates an average of 10 new digital images every second of every day and publishes them at familysearch.org within a matter of weeks. All those new digital images means there’s a dramatic increase in the need for online volunteer indexers and arbitrators!

In the last month, projects from Paraguay, Panama, Bolivia, and Slovakia have been added as new indexing projects. This is the first time projects from these countries have been available for indexing. See the lists below for the newest additions and status of other projects.

You and your family, friends, and colleagues can help make the world’s historical records searchable online. Visit https://indexing.familysearch.org to learn more about FamilySearch indexing and download the free software. Your volunteer contribution will help others discover the joy of finding their own ancestors.

Genealogical Encyclopedia of the Colonial Americas

Genealogical Encyclopedia of the Colonial Americas. See a review below:

Genealogical Encyclopedia of the Colonial Americas: A Complete Digest of the Records of All the Countries of the Western Hemisphere is the most comprehensive collection of information on colonial period records covering the entire Western Hemisphere, both North and South America. As far as I know, there is no other single reference for records sources covering the colonial periods for the entire hemisphere.

This book examines the colonial period from the earliest European colonization in the Western Hemisphere until:

  • the American Revolution for the thirteen colonies
  • statehood was obtained for other U.S. states
  • Latin American countries which did not declare independence from Spain and Portugal until 1808 or later
  • Caribbean countries and dependencies through about 1810
  • the abolition of the slave trade, for slavery related records, including dates of emancipation

For each country, the author Christina K. Schaefer, provides an historical background and brief sketches of the records themselves, plus descriptions for the principle holding of the major repositories. Record groups are broken down into similar categories for each country. Common sections include church and ecclesiastical records, census records, notarial records, governmental and municipal records, military records, land records, etc. A list of suggested readings rounds out each chapter.

At 814 pages, this reference is indeed extensive. It may be literally impossible to cover every possible resource in a single project. Still, Schaefer has provided a treasure trove of information vital to genealogical record finding. If you need colonial period records for anywhere in the Americas, this book can help.

A Look at Some Central & South American Records at FamilySearch

In our discussions on research topics, we so often spend a great deal of time focusing on our ancestors who have come to the United States from the East or the West. But what about those who came from the South? Fortunately, FamilySearch has not forgotten about them. While availability of European and U.S. records have been easier to access and index in the past, FamilySearch has made great efforts to include those vital records accessible from Central and South American countries. This includes the Caribbean. Here is just a short list of indexed records which have been made available this year for free at FamilySearch:

Brazil, Immigration Cards, 1900-1965, 125,830 records as of 17 Sep 2011
Argentina, National Census, 1895; 3,888,939 records as of 6 Sep 2011
Nicaragua, Civil Registration; 363,085 records as of 16 Aug 2011
Peru, Civil Registration, 1874-1978; 163,944 records as of 16 Aug 2011
Jamaica, Civil Birth Registration; 1,528,614 records as of 13 Apr 2011
Costa Rica Church Records, 1595-1992; 1,380,256 records as of 8 Apr 2011

With so many people vying to get into the U.S., and with a hot-potato topic like illegal immigration seemingly in the news every other day or so, its easy to forget people actually immigrate to countries other than our own. Brazil and Argentina saw mass migrations of Europeans during the great wars. Some of these individuals and families, or their descendants, later immigrated into the U.S. Immigration records from foreign countries may just come in handy to your research.

Other records, both browsable images as well as indexed, have been added over the past couple of years. There are millions of available records, most belonging to someone’s ancestor, just waiting to be found.
