NewspaperArchive.com 7 Day TrialIn the last three days, NewspaperARCHIVE posted many newspapers from the 1880s & 1890s. Seventeen states and one Canadian province is represented this time around.

New Online Digital Newspapers at NewspaperARCHIVE – 1

NewspaperArchive.com 7 Day TrialAs you folks know, I’m a big fan of digital documents, books, and periodicals online. This last week I finally bought a NewspaperARCHIVE.com subscription. I’ve already found numerous papers that have items about both my family, as well as Patty’s. NewsaperARCHIVE is currently posting newspapers from the 1960s – one of the more interesting periods in my own life – so I’ve been reliving the past while I’ve been compiling this post. The following papers have been posted at NewspaperARCHIVE in the last 6 days. Note that I missed one day in there, so if you see some date skips of a day or two with some papers, that’s most likely the reason.

Papers for Alabama (1), Alaska (1) , Arizona (1), Arkansas (2), California (3), Connecticut (1), Illinois (1), Indiana (4), Iowa 15), Kansas (2), Louisiana (1), Maryland (1), Massachusetts (1), Missouri (3), Montana (2), New Mexico (5), New York (1), Ohio (1), South Dakota (1), Texas (7), Utah (4), Virginia (1), and Wisconsin (1) have been posted – in full digital format. (The numbers following the state names refer to the number of Newspaper Titles digitized. Iowa was the big winner in sheer numbers of titles this week.)

Written in Bone: Forensic Files of the Seventeenth-Century Chesapeake

Capt. Bartholomew GosnoldThe Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. is currently hosting a new forensic anthropology exhibit – Written in Bone: Forensic Files of the 17th-Century Chesapeake. The exhibit is made up of skeletal remains – human bones unearthed in recent decades from the earliest settlements of seventeenth-century Maryland and Virginia.

The exhibit draws on the resources of 20 institutions, including Anne Arundel County’s Lost Towns Project, the Maryland Historical Trust and the Maryland State Archives. It’s taken five years to put it together.

Displays explore the human skeleton, the science of forensic anthropology, and how its practitioners are using twenty-first-century scientific tools to piece together the stories of the hard lives and forgotten deaths of the earliest European-Americans.

The exhibit will run through February 6, 2011.

Read all about the exhibit, and the stories told by the bones of a number of the exhibits in an article written by Frank D. Roylance in the February 16, 2009 edition of the Baltimore Sun.

New at Footnote.com – Indian Census Rolls – City Directories – Civil War Widows’ Pensions – Arkansas Civil War Service Records

Footnote.comFootnote.com sent out an update today stating the new records that can be found at their site. The following items are new or updated for January. I added a listing of cities for which Footnote earlier posted city directories.

Indian Census Rolls, 1885 – 1940 57,865 images.

This title, NARA publication M595, consists of census rolls submitted annually by agents or superintendents of Indian reservations as required by an 1884 Act of Congress. Most rolls include the English and/or Indian name of the person, roll number, age or date of birth, sex, and relationship to head of family. Beginning in 1930 the rolls also show the degree of Indian blood, marital status, ward status, place of residence, and sometimes other information. Only persons who maintained a formal affiliation with a tribe under Federal supervision are listed on these census rolls. There is not a census for every reservation or group of Indians for every year. Some tribes, particularly those in the East, were never under Federal jurisdiction and therefore not included in this publication.

Civil War Widows Pensions These images are being obtained by scanning the original paper documents held at the National Archives. There are currently 129,934 indexed images posted online.

The files are grouped under the soldier’s name, but the widow’s name and names of minor children are listed on the first page within the pension file. A pensioner’s name (typically the widow’s) is searchable, often giving her maiden name as well. Case files include where and when a man served, details of his service, his life before the war, and his family, including information about his widow, children, and sometimes his parents. These files are unfilmed textual records.

City Directories

  • San Francisco, California
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

These directories now join others from:

  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Chicago, Illinois

  • New York, New York
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Misc…

Civil War Union Soldier Service Records – Arkansas – 30,560 images

Compiled service records typically contain card abstracts of a soldier’s original muster and hospital rolls, descriptive books, lists of deserters, returns, notational cards, and possibly enlistment papers, casualty sheets, death reports, prisoner of war papers, and correspondence.

Civil War Confederate Soldier Service Records – Arkansas – 19,522 images.

These records contain card abstracts of entries relating to each soldier as found in original muster rolls, returns, rosters, payrolls, appointment books, hospital registers, Union prison registers and rolls, parole rolls, and inspection reports. They may also contain the originals of any papers relating solely to a particular soldier. Browse by military unit, then name of soldier, or use the search box related to this title.
