Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.

A major collection of compiled genealogies is the Nevada Centennial Commission's Collection for Early Day Families at the Nevada Historical Society. This collection has information about the state's pioneers and their descendants.

Various chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the American Colonists have made transcripts of Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, death, obituary, and probate records. Some of these transcripts are on Family History Library films 869278 and 176645. Others are in Mrs. Chester A. Paterson, ed., Genealogical Records (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1953-58; Family History Library book 979.3 D2d; film 1425613 items 6-8).

Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons:

  • It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information.
  • It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common.
  • It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess.
  • It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
