  1. Some years ago I found an ancestral grandfather’s name in a book of abstracted orphan’s court records which listed the names of minor children & two older brothers that had been passed down from Bible records showing the two older brothers assigned as guardians of their siblings after their father’s death – giving the father’s name. A cousin used the father’s name & found records for several further generations back. Much thanks to the lady who worked in those courthouse records and had her results printed in multiple books.
