This reference book documents advertisements published in eighteenth- and early nineteenth- century newspapers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, New York, and the District of Columbia for missing relatives and friends. This is a very unusual type of genealogical research source but provides some very interesting family history and details about an individual’s life and when their location was last known. It could prove to be a very worthwhile source if a particular person is mentioned in the collected notices.
