Friday Finds – 06/25/10

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

Women and the Naturalization Process – A great article from Jen at Family History Research Tips.

Ancestry.ca Completes Collection of Canadian City and Area Directories, 1819-1906 – Miriam posted some good news at her Online Historical Directories blog.  Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything for one of my brick walls, but I have plenty more to search for when I get some time.

Land Ownership Maps – Ancestry has indexed over 7 million names in this map collection.  I haven’t had a chance to play around with it, but would love to hear if you have explored it and what your experience was.

Oakland County, Michigan Deeds – Two films came in this week so I will be busy transcribing more deeds.  This batch of films contains a lot of relevant records, so I will be up to my ears in deeds for a week or so.  I plan to write a post about a missing BLM land patent, yet there is a reference to the purchase from the US in a deed between the original land owner and the new owner.
