For those of you researching Huntingdonshire Emigrants to the USA I received the following email which may or may not be useful. I cannot prove the authenticity of these details:
I would like to be of assistance to anyone who would like original documents and material pertaining to their family members who immigrated to the United States. While engaging in genealogical research for individuals here in the U.S. and abroad, I realize what an asset it is to be located near the primary National Archive that has original information no other archives have in the U.S. - I have obtained documents and information about members of my family tree from U.S. Censuses, Passenger Ship Manifests, military records of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican War and Civil War, as well as a host of other primary sources at the National Archives, such as:
Documents & Records
U.S. Census, 1790-1920
Mortality Census Schedules, 1850-1880 (Federal)
Military Service Records, 1775-1903
Military Pensions, 1775-1916
Pension Application Files of Remarried Widows
Bounty Land Warrants for Revolutionary War Service
Bounty Land Warrants for War of 1812 Service, 1815-1858
Registers of Enlistments in the U.S. Army, 1798-1914
Passenger & Immigration Ship Arrival Records, 1600s-1800's
Passenger Lists, 1820-1954 (Customs & Immigrations)
Passport Applications, 1791-1926
Land Records, 1800-1974 (in the public land states)
[Many More Categories]
Documents & Records, Civil War
Original Military Pension Records (Union only); compiled Service Records and Troop Movements (Union & Confederate - Field/Staff, Regimental, Unit levels);
Original Union Prison Records and Andersonville Records;
Lists of Soldiers Captured at Vicksburg.
[Many More Categories]
I can provide service to those who would like such information (photocopies of available original documents, records, or otherwise) at reasonable rates as I live in Washington, DC and have ready access to information in the U.S. National Archives, much of which is not available in county, state, or even regional national archives.
There are no legal concerns about copyrighted material because the information in the National Archives is in the public domain for all the American people.
After examining the many areas of resources available on my Webpage, could you be so kind as to put a link on your Webpage(s) to my Website at -
Thank you for any consideration you may give.
