Collecting records before statehood in Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma has challenged me, as I try to gather documentation of my great-grandparents as they moved west with the frontier.
Arkansas does have some early records online at familysearch.org. I was really happy to find the marriage records for my great grandparents Green Berry Holder and Mary Minerva Tyler from Searcy County, Arkansas.
Then I was able to scan the marriage records with my brand new Flip-Pal scanner and import into this document. Life is good today and, on my genealogy field trips to collect the rest of those records, I’ll be able to scan documents and pictures on site with the Flip-Pal.
Notice, I’m working on creating better citations – studying Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence! Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing: 1997. and Thomas W. Jones’ Mastering Genealogical Proof. Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society: 2013.Copyright © 2013 Andrea Musgrove Perisho
