Questions Asked Fruitlessly
What's a QAF? Well, if a FAQ is a set of frequently asked questions with
answers, a QAF is a set of questions that NONE of us can answer. If YOU
know any of the answers, please let us know.
- Do any town libraries have a complete set of the Town Books?
- Do any town libraries have a complete index to the NEHG Register?
- Are any of the Town Books available through Inter-Library Loan?
- Does an online master source exist anywhere that gathers all of the Massachusetts
Town Book information into a single database?
- Are application forms for marriages frequently available, rather than just
certification of the marriage?
- Is it usually possible to go to the appropriate Town Hall and actually SEE
the original vital statistics record?
- If you have an ancestor who moved up in the ranks from enlisted soldier to
officer, is there any place to find the correlation between the unique identification
number given an enlisted soldier and the completely DIFFERENT identification number
given an officer?
- Many states collect census data between the ten year federally
required ones. Is there a central database that says what census
data has been taken, when and where?
- Although much of the 1900 census was not indexed, some towns have created
their own index. Is there a central database anywhere that says which separate
pieces of the 1900 census were locally indexed?
