    Lots of city directories and other records.

    (Not such a great design though.)
    Yes, I agree that the design is off-putting. I will have to explore the site as I didn't quite get the syntax.

    About Us and Copyright Information
    The purpose of this site is to provide a primary source of documentation for all of the Allied prisoners of the Japanese during WWII. Our goal is to determine what each man's unit was at capture then record what camps he was taken to and where he was rescued. Where possible, we will provide rosters of the hell ships, and, if a man perished, where, when and how."

Are census records reliable for genealogy research? - 1 views

    Over the last six months, this column has discussed the "Anatomy" of the federal census for the years from 1870-1930, not including the mostly-destroyed 1890 census. In this series of articles, each column of the census questionnaire was examined, and clues that will aid your research were discussed. If you have missed any of these articles, you can read them again using the links below:

    Anatomy of the 1930 federal census
    Anatomy of the 1920 federal census
    Anatomy of the 1910 federal census
    Anatomy of the 1900 federal census
    Anatomy of the 1880 federal census
    Anatomy of the 1870 federal census

    In a discussion concerning the federal census as evidence for genealogical research, however, one must also consider the question: are census records reliable sources?

About the Digital Library on American Slavery - 1 views

    The Digital Library on American Slavery is a cooperative venture between the Race and Slavery Petitions Project and the Electronic Resources and Information Technology Department of University Libraries at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Digital Library offers a searchable database of detailed personal information about slaves, slaveholders, and free people of color. Designed as a tool for scholars, historians, teachers, students, genealogists, and interested citizens, the site provides access to information gathered and analyzed over an eighteen-year period from petitions to southern legislatures and country courts filed between 1775 and 1867 in the fifteen slaveholding states in the United States and the District of Columbia.

    Reviewed in the Dec/Jan 2010 issue of Internet Genealogy by Diane L. Richard
    The Digital Library on American Slavery offers data on race and slavery extracted from eighteenth and nineteenth-century documents and processed over a period of eighteen years. The Digital Library contains detailed information on about 150,000 individuals, including slaves, free people of color, and whites. These data have been painstakingly extracted from 2,975 legislative petitions and 14,512 county court petitions, and from a wide range of related documents, including wills, inventories, deeds, bills of sale, depositions, court proceedings, amended petitions, among others. Buried in these documents are the names and other data on roughly 80,000 individual slaves, 8,000 free people of color, and 62,000 whites, both slave owners and non-slave owners
