Account Books, Journals and Diaries 1772 ~ 1925
Over the years I have compiled a unique collection of original Ledger Books, Journals and Diaries from stores, schools, and individuals. These old books are a wealth of great genealogy data. The ledgers can act as a census substitute, letting you know if your ancestors were there in the years between census. They also contain the kind of personal Genealogy data that often can not be found any other way by giving you a window into the daily lives of your ancestors. It is often quite amazing what one can find in some of the books. Store owners might record the death of a customer who owes money to the store. A farmer may note the birth of a neighbor's child. You just never know what you will find.
For a small fee I will do a lookup for your ancestor. For
each ancestor I find I will make a quality reproduction of his records on the
ledger page and send that to you. If he is in the ledger
book more than once I will send you every
instance of his name (and details) found in the book.
Please remember that these books are not indexed and the
small fee is non-refundable. You are paying this small cost
for my time spent reading through the books to find your
ancestor's name (and straining my eyes over some of the
I also provide links to other sites that do lookups as well.
