Today you’ll notice not one, but two new projects! The Middlesex, (England) Criminal Registers, 1791-1849 and the New England Naturalization Indexes.
In reading the Middlesex, Criminal Registers you’ll likely become engrossed in the stories of the criminals – what were they convicted of, how old were they, how long was their sentence. And not only are there interesting stories there is also interesting handwriting to decipher.
The New England Naturalization Indexes is a series of index cards, there are three on each image, that provide excellent vital information. Since people were coming from all over the world you get to read a lot of unique names.
In addition to these two new projects keep your eyes peeled for the return of the Nebraska State Census project later this week. A month ago we ran into some problems with the quality of the images, they were virtually unreadable, so we took the project offline while we reworked images.
