Abstracts of Snyder County Probate and Orphans Court Records (1772-1855). Compiled by Dr. Charles A. Fisher, Selinsgrove, Pa., 1940. 77 pages and Index, 9 pages.
This volume contains the abstracts of wills, where a will is on record. Otherwise the abstracts of letters of administration are given. Surnames most frequently found among the deceased are Boyer, Fisher, Hassinger, Hummel, Kline, Miller, Moyer, Newman, Romig, Schoch, Shaffer, Smith, Snyder, Stock, Stroub, Swartz, Swineford, Wagner, Walter, and Witmer. This volume covers the area before Snyder County was formed. For that reason none of the original records would be found at Middleburg, the county seat of Snyder County. The earlier records are found at Sunbury, county seat of Northumberland County; the late records are found at Lewisburg, county seat of Union County. This volume should be included in genealogical libraries in regions where Pennsylvania families have settled.
Guide to Ten Major Depositories of Manuscript Collections in New York State. Edited by Harry B. Yoshpe and George W. Roach. Published as Volume 38, Number 2, of Proceedings of the Middle States Association of History and Social Science Teachers. Teachers College, Columbia University, New York City, 1941. 57 pages and Index, 20 pages.
This is an indispensable guide book for the student of social science, especially in history, biography and genealogy. In using this book it should be remembered that depositories in New York City are not included and that there are many other depositories in upstate New York. Why can we not have a book such as this for every state?
Neal Family. By Emma E. (Neal) Brigham, Springfield, Mass. Published by the author, 1938. 338 pp & Preface, 16 pp. & Index, 40 PP.
The greater part of this book is a record of the descendants of Samuel Neal and Walter Neal of Portsmouth, N. H. The author calls them brothers and it would seem that they were. The author also gives a certain Walter Neal as their father. Perhaps he was their father but there seems to be no proof given in this book. Scanty records make it a little difficult to reach definite conclusions regarding some New Hampshire families in the seventeenth century. The second part of the book is devoted to the descendants of John' Neal of York Co., Me. The last three parts are devoted to other lines of New England families of the name of Neal which have not yet been thoroughly studied. The author has crowded a great amount of information into the space used. The descendants of daughters of the family are often followed for two or more generations. This feature adds much to the value of the book and helps to give a clearer picture of the intermarriages of early New Hampshire families.
This volume gives some of the descendants of William Gosney, who died in Culpepper County, Virginia in 1767. The book also includes considerable information about a good many families that have intermarried with the Gosney family. Those that should be mentioned especially are Arnold, Baker, Bryan, Caldwell, Harney, Hazard, Hopkins, Lutz, Smith, Van Cleave, Wisda and Yelton. Most of these are families on which very little genealogical work has been done. Hence the book should be very useful. Mrs. Wisda is to be commended that she decided to publish this pioneer volume.
