3 January 2016: I restored the Victoria Australia BMD page which you deleted about October 2016. It looked like it was probably to fix the breadcrumb trail. This is to let you know so that that specific fix can be made. We need the content that is on that page to help answer a research question that came to the Facebook Research Community.Darris G.

New Parish Registers Page

Hello,

My name is Ridge Wallace, and I want to let you know that I have posted a new article about parish registers. I am informing you of this because I see that you have worked on most of the articles dealing with parish registers, and I just want to assure that I did not mean to step on any toes by posting the article. This new article does borrow some information from the other parish register articles, but it presents it in a way that is more geared to work specifically with the Historical Records articles my team writes. Please let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,

Ridge

Headright Grants

Hi, just wanted to give some feedback that might improve your already-wonderful U.S. Land Records Class Handout. The Headright Grants section, as currently written, seems a bit unclear as to whether the sponsor or the immigrant received the 50 acres after the immigrant worked out his indenture. The first sentence makes it sound like the English government wanted to reward the sponsor with the 50 acres, but a later sentence indicates the 50 acres was a reward for the immigrant. The first sentence says "an individual received a grant of 50 acres for bringing people over from England," and the later sentence says "The person whose passage had been paid would serve as an indentured servant for seven years, receiving his freedom, 50 acres of land, and a certain amount of money...."

Keep up the great work,

Michael Ritchey
