  • Kentucky Family Histories #1, 1700s-1800s
    This database contains images of the pages from the three-volume series Genealogies of Kentucky Families, Volumes I-III. These books contain family history articles collected from The Filson Club History Quarterly as well as articles from The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society, published between 1903 and 1965. The latter set of articles includes every Bible record and genealogical fragment published in the register.
  • Southern Genealogies #1, 1600s-1800s
    The six volumes that make up Notable Southern Families are among the best known works on Southern genealogy ever published. Begun in 1918 and completed in 1932, Notable Southern Families is a collection of family histories that include thousands of individuals of Cavalier, Scotch-Irish, and Huguenot heritage.
  • Index to Griffith’s Valuation of Ireland, 1848-1864
    This database is an index to one of Ireland’s premier genealogical resources, Griffith’s Valuation. It references more than one million individuals who owned property in Ireland between 1848 and 1864. Since no Irish census of the nineteenth century has survived, Griffith’s Valuation is a record of extreme importance. It is, essentially, the only detailed guide to where in Ireland people lived during the mid-nineteenth century and what property they possessed. In effect, Griffith’s Valuation can be used as a census substitute for the years before, during, and after the Great Famine.
  • Colonial Family Histories #1, 1607-1920
    This data set contains images of the pages from the all seven volumes of Colonial Families of the United States of America. Originally published by the Genealogical Publishing Company, these volumes contain information about approximately 142,000 individuals.
