Book summary

After eight years of research in the records of the War Department, the State Department, the archives of the individual states, as well as records of the Spanish and the British in West Florida, the author first published this collection of the passports and travel records in 1982. These documents were issued to individuals and families traveling or migrating into the Mississippi Valley area and include all known travel documents for the period of 1770-1823. Each entry gives the names of the passport recipients, the official granting the passport, the date the passport was executed and other identifying particulars. In addition the history of the passport process as it affected the various jurisdictions under consideration is explained in detail. Bridging the gap between history and genealogy, this book includes extensive citations and notes. Coupled with a bibliography of sources and a complete name index, this volume possibly represents the most complete source of information for this time period. [via]
