Oneida Community Genealogy Continued

On Sunday, I wrote about the Oneida Community as a part of my Church Record Sunday. At my presentation yesterday at the North County San Diego Genealogical Society I actually met someone with ancestors who were members of the Oneida Community. I almost fell over-mostly because The Oneidas were a small group so the chances are slim of meeting anyone, especially a few days after writing the post.

She told me about a book that would help researchers of the Oneida Community, beyond what I wrote about on Sunday. The book is entitled, The Oneida Family, Genealogy of a 19th Century Perfectionist Commune by John B. Teeple. This book was a limited run. If you go to Calcat (www.calcat.org) you can look it up for the complete bibliographic record. It look as thought the only California library to own a copy is at UC Davis. World Cat shows 8 libraries in the US that own it including the New England Historic Genealogical Society.

This book includes a surname index and photos.

Hello - I found your blog looking for people engaged in genealogy. A colleague of mine and his team of technologists just built a new site - I am helping him introduce it and spread the word!

It's packed with amazing features to record your family history, search genealogy, build a family tree, continue to add family members and invite them in as well, bring your photos into the site from other Web 2.0 tools you already use - it's free, easy, and pretty fun too.

It would be great if you could try it out and let arcalife know what you think!

Neat that you met just after your post! If you are interested in what the Mansion and grounds looks like today, Mrs Mecomber visited last year.
