Now equities may be in there, assets, or injunctive most states combine especially in the older relief (ordering a person law and equity and treat newspapers about the area. to do something) to both under "one cause prevent irreparable of action” (The Free Things that you may find are damage.

In essence courts do the courts of law, and fair thing by court orders Marriages in Older Newspapers All of us at some time or another have picked up a newspaper and looked at the names of the brides and the names of those engaged to be married several months from that date. I can only imagine that one might have found a distant relative getting married. Many papers in the older times included marriage announcements. Examples of these from the Camden, South Carolina newspapers in the during the years 1870 and 1880. The Kershaw County 1910 Census In the 1910 census, there James G.

On these ads, such things as acreage, where located, and sometimes neighbors next door might be included. Here are some examples in the newspapers from the 1870 to the 1880’s in the Camden, Kershaw County area. This is a Sheriff’s Sale from the newspaper. Much land sold was carried out by the Sheriff in the county. ******************************************************************************************************************* Identifying German Names If you know a little German, you will be able to recognize names more easily; however, if you do not know German there are a number of clues to look for. Look for names which begin with sch, the consonant cluster and sound represented in English by sh, like in shoe: Schaefer (Schafer, Schaeffer, Schaffer, Shaffer), Schlitz, Schluter, Schmid (Schmidt, Schmitt, Schmitz), Schneider, Schrader, Schroeder, Schul(t)z (Schulz, Shulz), Schumacher, Schu(h)mann, and Schwar(t)z. Look for names with ue (ü), oe (ö), indicating umlauts; beginning with Kn: Knopf, Knecht, Knefler, Kno(e)del; beginning with Pf: Pflaume, Pfrommer, Pfister, Pfizer; beginning with Str: Stroh. Names with ei are mostly German (but not all): Reichmann, Reimann, Reimers, Eisenhower, Heilemann, Klein, Weimer, Weiss. Neu is German for new: Neuman(n), Neuberger, Nieman(n), Nauman(n). If a name ends in -mann, -burg, -berg, -lich, -stein, or -t(h)al, it is a likely indication that the name is German. But in certain settlement areas, these endings could also refer to Swedish and Russian Jewish backgrounds. There are German place names ending in -burg (castle), -bruck (bridge), -furt (ford), -berg (mountain), -reuth, -rode (clearing in woods). Many German names have their roots in the Germanic middle ages. The process of forming family names began around the year 1100 and extended through 1600. All social classes and demographic strata aided in the development of names. First Names (Rufnamen) identified specific persons. Over time the first name began to be applied to the bearer's whole family. At first through verbal usage, family names (Familiennamen) were later fixed through writing. Until the 17th century, first names played a more important role. In East Friesland, family names originated the latest. The earliest family names derived from the first name of the first bearer (Patronym). Later names derived from the place of dwelling and location of the homestead. If a person of family migrated from one place to another they were identified by the place they came from. Of more recent origin are names derived from the vocation of profession of the first bearer. These names comprise the largest group and the most easily recognizable, for they tell what the first bearer did for a living. Another group are names derived from a physical or other characteristic of the first bearer. Finally, there are names which tell you the state or region a first bearer and his family came from; the age old division in tribes and regions (low German, middle German and upper German) is often reflected in names. For non-German speakers they are at first hard to "localize." Names from along the Dutch border, and some of the names from Northern Germany, sound much like Dutch or English names, respectively.
