A couple cousins and I have thought in talking through emails that some of the more important (and actually ANY record) of the Harrods should be published here in the GenForum since the best Harrod sites are no longer in existence or concentrate on their particular line.
The records I will be putting up are some Draper manuscript records, Rachel Henton's notebook transcriptions (see next post); and over a period of time: the Filson Club Quarterly's publication of Bernice Swainson's two Harrod Family articles; Indiana records from the WPA indexes (Indiana is very fortunate that these were well published, mistakes and all, but still every county done (not all were done, for instance Scott County, very important for two Harrod family branches, was not indexed, however in that case the County Historical Society and others have published those indexes or records); some DAR Bible Records; Revolutionary War information, War of 1812, Civil War information, Pension application info for those wars, some obits, some county history biographies, etc., mostly these things will be for Indiana and Ohio but Kentucky and Virginia should be represented too, and not just records for my immediate line, but other families regardless of connection if any.
And I am calling on all the cousins and all Harrod relatives to publish here in the GenForum for everyone's use those Bible records, obits, county histories, biographies you wrote for people, biographies grandma or auntie wrote, letters that contain genealogical information, wills, ANYTHING that is important to you and gave you accurate info for your files WILL BE important to someone else and may help them. So please join me in publishing the Harrod family records that still exist before it's too late. Our beloved Cousin Christine Biship Smith sent out a similar call when she still had her webpage and almost no one answered the call. Let's fix that now ! As always, Take Care, Cousins.
P.S. Please post said records as a new post with an appropriate heading, and not as a post in answer to this one.
