a little “librarian” lingo…

as Rush Limbaugh used to sayI miss the guy

Traci the Librarian and I have struggled, to say the least, to find Chowan DB B-1 in the website.

For any of you brave enough to enter into the fray or ruckus… this may help with your sanity.

A clue to the psychology involved may be found at Image 279 of 627 in Deeds 1714-1735… where you will find a helpful hint by one archivist, I assume, by the name of James Sutten where he lets loose with some angst!.. and informs us that he “thinks” he is dealing with some “Letter_____ C” records.

Of course there is another added note, seemingly by another archivist, who just seems to ramble on a bit, obviously confused by the whole miserable quest. If any of you puzzle solvers want to tackle this garbled response..carry on… I just scratched my head. But be warned… this note may be a symptom of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Be careful in there!… smiling

an update… from PogMo

Wow!! the old boys were MIFFED when they used the term “Scallawag Times”… that is pre Civil War lingo right there for all to see.

  1. Book B.
    I found (what I interpret to be) Book B records at FamilySearch, within Film # 007513263. For example, see image 67/769 for the record of Bryant to Braswell of 1715.

    Film # 007513263, Deeds 1715-1719, also has similar cryptic messages as the one found on image 768/769, “Book F, Records for Chowan County began this 18th day of February in the year of our Lord 1812 – by James Sutton, Public Register “Long in Service much labour and poorly rewarded by a miserable lot of Legislators”

    Also, beginning at image 673/769 (same said Film), appear to be court minute notes of deeds and other court recordings (beginning with date 18 Jan 1719 (poor quality images).
