Heritage Quest Resources
Heritage Quest On Line just got a huge boost with a brand new data bank. You can now read digitized applications for Revolutionary War service from your own homes. The data is searchable by last name and state, so if you are searching for a veteran of the Revolution with a common last name, it may take a little while, but it is well worth it.
Heritage Quest has digitized the “select” papers, the ones considered to have the most genealogical information. In them you will find details of the person’s service, marriage information, sometimes children and perhaps an account of the places the family has lived. Occasionally there are even whole pages torn from family bibles or accounts by fellow soldiers verifying the person’s service.
Bounty Land Warrants are also included in this set, although they give little information other than the name of the veteran and the number of the warrant.
Heritage Quest also has images of almost all of the census records for the United States, as well as thousands of digitized histories and genealogies. The Index to Genealogical Publications allows you to order them through interlibrary loan. All of the databases are searchable by name and sometimes by location.
You can access Heritage Quest by going to our website and clicking on “on-line databases”. You’ll need the number on the back of your library card to complete the connection.
