Unfortunately reseaching pre 1850 in the USA, because we do not have the
Parish records and the British Isles civil register starting in 1837, to
the degree the British have, we must look and find any and all kinds of
records to help put together the puzzle of our anscestors . Most of us that
have ancestory dating in the 1700's and 1800's in the USA need to some how
prove relationship in the event of the lack of church and civil records
Here in the USA we have a great abundance of land records that can prove
relationships. So understanding what each of the different records were,
that our ancestors created, helps to understand who they were and what they
did, and very important can give us leads to other records that could help.
I hope that answers your question at lest partial.
