Friday Finds – 01/29/10

Weekly column sharing genealogy-related things that I’ve learned or found.

Article – Apple, over at Apple’s Tree, posted a perfect example of why it’s important to seek out the original record, even if you have a transcription of it from another source.  Read about her important discovery in, Finding the Original Pays Off!

Website – The Connecticut State Library has a wonderful website providing a great deal of information to their historical and genealogical holdings.  I found two research guides particularly helpful:  Research Guide to Probate Records at the Connecticut State Library and Research Guide to Connecticut Land Records.

Research – It turns out, there is an entry in the Cook County Circuit Court records index for a divorce proceeding for Emil and Hulda Miller.  This is a huge find, and the file is being ordered to find out more.  Thanks to Cynthia of Chicago Genealogy for providing this lookup service on Genlighten.
