Directory of Scots Banished to the American Plantations, 1650-1775. New 2nd Edition!
This new second edition of the Directory of Scots Banished to the American Plantations, 1650-1775 contains fully 30% more convict passengers than in the original. Dr. David Dobson has made some modifications as well; for example, some men who were thought to have been Covenanters are now classed as rebels and English transportees have been omitted, while the references used have been enhanced to facilitate further research. In total, somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000 Scots were banished to the Americas during the Colonial period (whereas England transported around 50,000 and Ireland in excess of 10,000), all of whom contributed to the settlement and development of Colonial America.

Female Index to James Savage’s “Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England”
Because Savage’s “Dictionary” was originally published one volume at a time, in alphabetical order, the author never produced an index to the work as a whole. This limitation has always made it difficult to find female ancestors. Now, however, thanks to the heroic efforts of the late Patty Barthell Myers, the difficulty of finding females in Savage’s “Dictionary” is a thing of the past. In her book, Mrs. Myers identifies every woman/girl to be found in the “Dictionary.” Each female appears in the Myers INDEX under a maiden name and, separately, under the name of her husband.

State Census Records
It’s a fact that state governments have also carried out censuses randomly throughout their history to satisfy a variety of purposes, notwithstanding the decennial federal ones. These state censuses are invaluable to genealogists because they fill in gaps left by missing federal censuses. For example, 12 states conducted censuses between 1885 and 1895, any one of which can substitute for that state’s missing 1890 federal census. For all of these reasons, state censuses can give you a more complete picture of your ancestors and solve genealogical problems. To find out what state censuses exist, what kinds of information they contain, and where they can be found, read State Census Records, by Ann Lainhart, the definitive guide to this major, though vastly under-used, genealogical resource.
