Contains abstracts from the Daily National Intelligencer (formerly The National Intelligencer and Washington Advertiser), Washington, D.C.'s first newspaper. Entries include advertisements, appointments by the President, House of Representatives petitions, passed Acts, legal notices, insolvent debtors, marriages, deaths, miscellaneous notices, tax lists, military promotions, court cases, deaths by accident, prisoners, and maritime information. Items or events which might provide clues as to the location, age or relationship of an individual are included. A quick perusal will turn up an abundance of specialized information not readily available elsewhere, such as contemporary reports of murder and other sensational crimes, the opening of new businesses or the bankruptcy of others, lists of creditors, regimental lists of appointments and promotions in the US Army, naval crew lists, criminal court decisions, and much more. These abstracts are a vital resource for researching ancestors who lived in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, because they connect family names to businesses, occupations, neighborhoods, estates, relationships, associations, and specific dates. The abstracts are arranged chronologically, and the book includes an index of surnames as well as vessels and tracts of land. Newspapers.
