I like the accounting that included bed linens and other household items that could be used by the wife and then passed to certain children.

I haven't found anything on wills or deeds. All I have found is census and marriage information. I can find date of death through my grandparents on my Dad's side and grave information on his grandmother. That's it.

I haven't done any searches like that, but my grandmother kept an account book of sorts, which included how much items cost when she purchased them and also listed family member's milestones or other such happenings. It was neat that my mom kept them, and now I have them here. :)

I also have old account type books that my grandmother and her friends have recipes written down in that they had exchanged.

Oh! Guess what! My daughter (for her birthday) received a spiral notebook (5x7 ish inches) and the front cover was a PHOTO of her and her cousins! It was ordered through Shutterfly.com.

I was thinking this would be AWESOME to do for genealogy! You could order one with an ancestor's photo on it, and keep all your information in it about them! Wouldn't that be cool!
Especially if you personally knew the family member and remembered things they were famous for saying, things like their opinion, or advice or stories they would tell about their ancestors.

And we all lived happily ever after...

It's Worth Living.

Oh wow, I used to live near a family of Avery's, but not in CT.

One of the things that I found interesting on a will was a sewing machine valued at $5.00, which I guess was a lot back then.

As for land deeds, I still think it's funny they list, 500 feet to the big pine or the boulder or what have you. LOL

I'm amazed and saddened when I read a will that mentions omitting a child, or second or third etc son or particular person or just a female from benefits of the will.

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I knew I had quite a few relatives just outside New London Conn. One of my relatives was given a lot of land for services rendered. He gave each of his children, male and female and grandchildren land who gave their children land. The family name was Avery, so the area became known as Avery's Hive. Even today 80% of the people that live in that area are related to the original Avery
