Family Feuds, An Introduction to Chancery Proceedings. Susan T. Moore


This booklet is in two parts; the first part is intended to whet the appetite of the amateur family historian by describing why the records of the Court of Chancery and other equity courts are worth looking at, and answering such questions as what sort of cases were brought to these courts, what sort of people brought them, and how easy are they to read? The second part described the records themselves and the indexes and calendars that will enable you to look at them, together with some guidelines on searching them effectively.
