Through the generosity of a number of individuals, three new and unique family collections have recently been added to our Free Databases Family Files and Resources. The first is Burden Family Reunion, minutes from annual meetings from 1899 to 1939. The Forbing Family Photos, earth twentieth century photographs (with identifying information from the reverse of the photos included) and post cards for the Frank Forbing family.

The third collection is the George Ely Russell, Jr. Collection, whose research collection was donated to The Genealogy Center. Russell, a well-respected genealogist, maintained a collection of cards which recorded information on the wives and daughters of the extended Russell family. Russell Wives and Daughters is a searchable index to these scanned cards. This first installment includes more than 6700 cards, but more will be added as they are scanned. We thank George’s children for donating, and allowing us to make available, this valuable collection.
