Land Records
I wrote the bulk of the above essays (Chapters 1-15) in 2019 and the first few months of 2020. My goals were, first, to learn something about my family genealogy and, second, to better understand the process of immigration that took place before the US Civil War. After these essays were complete, I discovered the Erie County Deed Index and the digital microfilm images of the deeds. The data found in the deeds turned out to be extremely valuable, and I spent the second half of 2020 mining that archive. The following group of essays contain many of those findings.
