Santo Tomás Apóstol De Abiquiú Church, Abiquiú, New Mexico - Burial Register Extractions 1777-1827, Samuel Sisneros

University Libraries Staff Publications

This dataset was created as part of a recovery project of several New Mexico Catholic Church registers that were missing since 1933 or perhaps earlier. The registers contain entries of parishioners being baptized, married and receiving burial rites at the church of Santo Tomás Apóstol de Abiquiú, Abiquiú, New Mexico. The Center for Southwest Research (CSWR) at UNM digitized the registers, at which time a surrogate microfilm copy was made and the originals were transferred to the Archives of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. The microfilm edition has been catalogued in the UNM library system. Extractions of the registers were ...


York County Probate Records 1700-1800, Wendy E. Lucas 4505624, Noel D. Campbell Oct 2016

York County Probate Records 1700-1800, Wendy E. Lucas 4505624, Noel D. Campbell

The Magazine of Early American Datasets (MEAD)

We organized this data set to investigate whether gender had a significant impact on how appraisers conducted probate court estate inventories. If society drew a distinction between a man’s world and his work and a woman’s world and her work, then it may have associated different goods with the different worlds. This could have created ‘men’s possessions’ and ‘women’s possessions,’ ascribing gender to material objects. Acting within this set of cultural assumptions, probate appraisers might have wittingly or unwittingly inventoried estates differently on the basis of female involvement with the estate.

We used the York County ...

Williamsburg Brickmaker Humphrey Harwood's Ledger (1773-1793), Wendy E. Lucas 4505624, Noel D. Campbell

The Magazine of Early American Datasets (MEAD)

This file contains processed data from Humphrey Harwood’s Ledger B, folios 1-102. Entries in the ledger suggest that at least 128 folios existed in Ledger B, as well as Ledgers A and C.

For this file, we extracted and processed most of the data available in the ledger, but we were unable to understand the activities recorded in a handful of small accounts, which we omitted. Therefore, this file technically is a processed extract or ...

George Washington's Shipping Invoices From London Factors 1754-1772, Wendy E. Lucas 4505624, Noel D. Campbell

The Magazine of Early American Datasets (MEAD)

From 1754-1772, Washington marketed his crop on the consignment system. He shipped his tobacco to British 'factors' who would sell it for him on the British market, often for re-export to continental Europe. With his tobacco (and at other times during the year), Washington would send correspondence including a list of items he wished his factors to purchase for him with the tobacco revenues and ship to Virginia. The factors would attempt to fulfill Washington's purchase requests, based on product availability and their knowledge of his tastes and willingness to spend. After deducting shipping costs, insurance charges, duties and ...
