FF16:  VERMONT - CRAZY CRATE FF16:  BOOK 3:  B249:  COLLECTING VERMONT ANCESTORS. By Alice Eichholz, Ph.D., Published by New Trails, ©1986.  63 pages, cardstock covers, punched hole binding with round plastic circular binding.  Price $9.  Emphasizing using primary source materials, the chapters of this guidebook are organized to take you through the exciting, and sometimes daunting, process of identifying and locating your Vermont ancestors.  There are three general, and basic, perspectives for helping you to locate records and sources relative to your search.  The first is the uniqueness of Vermont's beginnings, second is the effect of Vermont's geography and economy on its settlement and migrations, and third is how oral history interviews can provide some clues.  There is a section on the use of maps and a fine 11 by 17 inch map of Vermont at the back of the book.  There are comprehensive sections on vital records (including cemetery, church, newspaper, military and other sources), census schedules, town records, probate districts and county sources including court and naturalization records. 
One of the most important aspects of Vermont research, as is true of other New England states, is the importance of the town as a basic unit of government and record keeping.  Another is the importance of Montpelier, the Capitol of Vermont, being the first place to begin your search because four buildings there house the largest, most comprehensive collection of materials in the state.
Nicely done and most effective at saving YOU time, money and effort in locating your Vermont ancestor.  PRICE: Was $9 Now sale priced 20% off at $7.20

By the way, the catamount is real, but the statue of it is not that of a catamount!  Interesting way to spend a half-hour on a quiet Sunday!!  PRICE: Was $2 Now sale priced 20% off at $1.60
