BOOKS OF INTEREST: Three more books from the Provincial collection of Winston De Ville are important for researchers and especially genealogists with ties to Louisiana.

 

 

After the Civil War, Congress was bound and determined to have a federal tax levied on Louisiana.  It is ironic that after having waged war to save the Union and free slaves, Washington politicians made the sale of slaves for tax payment a part of this new tax structure.

The Civil War Tax in Louisiana 1865 contains the names of persons who paid the tax and the amount of the 1865 assessment for each.  Arrangement is by parish, except for Calcasieu Parish, where no tax was collected, and some of the parishes are not always in alphabetical order.  During a chaotic time in post-Civil War in Louisiana, this book is an excellent first reference for locating lost ancestors.

Containing 355 pages, Claitor’s Publishing has made this one available again to researchers for $48.50.  It is an important collection of information and needs to be available in all major genealogical collections.

The second book is History of Baptists in Virginia, and this too is extremely valuable for genealogical researchers.  This volume has been out of print but is now available again in this new reprint from Claitor’s Publishing.

 

 

This book contains some 2,000 entries and includes the names of some of Virginia’s first families.  This huge volume was originally compiled by Robert B. Semple and revised by G.W. Beale with a preface by Joe M. King.  With this new preface, the subject is placed in historical perspective.

This book is priced at $83.50.

 

 The third book is Mississippi Territorial Papers Index: 1798 – 1817 by Clarence Edwin Carter with an introduction by De Ville.  Carter is responsible for the multi-volume Territorial Papers of the United States which has served historians for many years.  With this Mississippi volume, researchers can take advantage of a source long neglected by family historians.  He actually devoted two large volumes to this region in which so many Anglo-American frontier families became lost within a former Spanish colony.

This book gathers the two indices into a single volume.  With over 10,000 entries in this two-part index, virtually all early (pre-statehood) families are named.  Major research centers have copies of the texts, and copies of specific original documents are available from the National Archives.

 

 

This new edition from Claitor’s Publishing contains 145 pages and priced at $38.50.
