Caperton Society Blog
I have begun adding passort applications to the Vital Records section of the Collections. These applications frequently contained the names and birthdates of fathers, mothers, spouses etc. They also contained interesting tidbits like where the applicant was going or trying to come back from as well as their photograph! for those of you into Google Earth, many of the applications have home adresses, so if you are interested in seeing where your ancestors lived then you can google the address. but don't be surprised if their house is a high rise or a freeway. I have searched several of the addresses and it appears that our ancestors frequently grew up on land that has now become re-developed. I hope to have the complete collection posted over the next several weeks.
