Book Description

September 9, 2009 0786439904 978-0786439904 2
Designed for both professional and amateur genealogists and other researchers, this index provides a detailed guide to materials available in the extensive Records of Ante-Bellum Southern Plantations microfilm set. By using this index to identify specific collections in which materials pertinent to a specific family name, plantation name, or location may be found, and then reviewing the details in the appropriate Guides, the researcher may pinpoint the location of desired materials. The items indexed include deeds, wills, estate papers, genealogies, personal and business correspondence, account books, slave lists, and many other types of records. This new edition also includes a list of all of the manuscript collections included in the microfilm set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great plantation resource! June 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There's so much data in this book that I've yet to go through it all. The jewel would be to find a plantation that my ancestors worked on and then research from there. That's my hope and I think I'll accomplish it with this book. The price was also unbelievable. I was recommended this book by the staff at the Library of Congress. I looked everywhere and it was at least $100.
