Described as "The Genealogist's Resource for Interpreting Causes of Death," Rudy's List of Archaic Medical Terms is a collection of archaic medical terms and their old and modern definitions. The primary focus of this web site is to help decipher the Causes of Death found on Mortality Lists, Certificates of Death and Church Death Records from the 19th century and earlier. This web site will be updated often and as new information is received. My intention is to collect and record old medical terms in all European languages. The English and German lists are the most extensive to date.

When we search for our ancestors, we often come across terms that are rarely used anymore and some that were never particularly common. We may find Latin terms in church books, medical terminology in death records (he died of what?), abbreviations on tombstones, and legalese in court records. Modern dictionaries do not always help, particularly if the word is archaic as these are often only found by searching for the modern equivalent which brings to mind the old saying “if I knew how to spell it I wouldn’t need a dictionary” although in our case the spelling could change from record to record, it is the meaning we need in order to understand the information we have uncovered. With these things in mind we have collected and selected terms from various sources and fields of study that you may come across in your genealogical research. These lists are added to and edited as terms are added and definitions are refined. Think of them not just as research aids, but as living lists of dead (or almost dead) words.

Since the first census in 1790, the U.S. Census Bureau has collected data using a census "schedule," also called a "questionnaire” or “form." Between 1790 and 1820, U.S. Marshals conducting the census were responsible for supplying paper and writing-in headings related to the questions asked (i.e., name, age, sex, race, etc.). The PDF of the report may also be directly accessed at https://www.census.gov/prod/2002pubs/pol02marv-pt2.pdf

This site aims to extract and preserve the records from the various parishes and to provide online access to that data, FREE of charge, along with other data of value to family and local historians conducting research in the County of Lancashire. An OnLine Parish Clerk should not be confused with Parish Clerks, who work for parish or town councils. All the data provided through these pages has been compiled and transcribed by volunteers. OnLine Parish Clerks have often become involved in their particular parish because of their interest in the town or village where their ancestors lived. While some may live in their chosen parish, many do not, indeed many live in other Countries. All OnLine Parish Clerks welcome enquiries and will do their best to help, but please remember their time will always be limited, and that many will be busy transcribing records for their chosen parish. Data and records are presented from the earliest records that can be found up to approximately the end of the 19th century. At that time there were almost 400 parishes within the pre 1974 county boundaries of Lancashire. Data is gathered from a multitude of sources, including, though not limited to, parish registers, census records, cemetery records, churchwardens accounts, overseers accounts, land tax records, wills, business directories, postal directories, church and village histories, etc. This data is provided in a convenient manner totally free of charge for personal and private use only. This data may NOT be reproduced for any commercial purpose. No warranty is implied or given concerning the accuracy of data on the associated pages, as any transcriptions may be subject to error for a variety of reasons. Sources should be given for all data and users of this data are encouraged to obtain these sources to verify the accuracy where appropriate.

The Rogue Genealogist is an online community designed specifically for genealogy outsiders. It was founded in recognition of the need for a welcoming and supportive place for those who often feel left out, overlooked, or out of place in more typical genealogy societies. As members of the Gen X and Gen Y generations, we will likely appeal the most to this age group. However, we realize to focus solely on this age group is to leave out those from other generations who feel the same way as members of this group, as well as over-generalizes the Gen X and Gen Y generations. Who are the genealogy outsiders? The rogue genealogists? We consider rogue genealogists to be those who are misfits, rebels, and dreamers. Those who can be in a room surrounded by others who share a passion for genealogy, but still feel disconnected or they don’t fit in. Those who are not afraid to challenge the status quo when needed, who see things differently than most, and who do not shy away from asking questions about how and why things are done.

We agree. So, this month we're going to talk search tactics. Some of them make the haystack smaller, some make the needle larger, and some work like a magnet.

A project of the William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture at The Newberry Library in Chicago, the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries is a powerful historical research and reference tool in electronic form. The Atlas presents in maps and text complete data about the creation and all subsequent changes (dated to the day) in the size, shape, and location of every county in the fifty United States and the District of Columbia. It also includes non-county areas, unsuccessful authorizations for new counties, changes in county names and organization, and the temporary attachments of non-county areas and unorganized counties to fully functioning counties. The principal sources for these data are the most authoritative available: the session laws of the colonies, territories, and states that created and changed the counties. Maps can be downloaded as PDF's or GIS files. Take time to explore the "download maps" and "using the atlas" links. It is well worth the effort.
