This is the final stretch for working with the William B. Bogardus Collection. These last few posts will deal with files that cover vital records (birth, marriage, death) of persons named Brewer or Brower. Most of these records (or more accurately, transcripts or extractions of records) are from the 19th-century. Some of the death records take us back to persons born in the later part of the 18th-century. There are 74 files and I will divide them and present them over the course of several posts. This first one being those files that cover records in the State of New Jersey.
I will simply present each file with as concise and descriptive as a title as possible. This will also serve as the link to the file's location online. I have not investigated or researched any of these files any further. That's largely because my self imposed time limit with working at making this large collection available to all, is over. It's been a five year effort and I am eager to move on.
The files vary in size, in some cases there are a lot of individual entries, in many there are just a few, and in some, only one. I will not mention any specific records or persons by named found in each file, and simply leave it to you, the reader, to decide which ones you wish to open the file and explore further. As always, I recommend that you also consult the original source for the info found in each file. The sources are found on the first note card in each file, and although most are not in compliance with modern source citing standards, there is enough information there that you should have no trouble locating the source elsewhere. I will not hunt down each one individually (as I often did in the past), but I suspect that most, or all, can be found somewhere, either with the Family History Library, Heritage Quest, Internet Archives, Google Books, or even a general webwide Google search.
