We are Record Keepers

Mankind has recorded his activities since Adam and Eve. Adam kept a "Book of Remembrance" and the patriarchs kept records down through the ages. It is a question of how it was written, papyrus, clay jars, stone, copper, brass, etc. During the early days of the colonies, political records and a vast correspondnce was kept for the Mother Country as well as church records. And the colonist wrote a regular stream of records to their relatives and friends. If we had but some of the correspondence concerning the colonists in the British Museum or elsewhere, more of the genealogy puzzle would unfold.  Even though many American court houses burned, there are still records to be found. Take, for instance, the country churches which occupied the frontiers.  While some of these old churches have their buildings on the National Register of Historic places along with their books of baptism, etc., it is also true that you can still track down other churches simply through enquiring of neighbors. It is rather enjoyable to get a county map and search out the old churches and cemeteries.
