Bibliography of Going to Palmyra: Sherman Deeds.



of the book
Going to Palmyra; Sherman Deeds

        Because the book, Going to Palmyra; Sherman Deeds, is more than simply a Sherman family history, it also includes many historical events. Thus the bibliography includes a variety of non-Sherman readings that were used during the course of research. However, throughout the bibliography a serious Sherman family historian can find many well know Sherman resources from both past and present. Examples include John H. Sherman, (JHS) Frank Dempster Sherman, (FDS) Roy V. Sherman, (RVS) Bertha L. Stratton, (BLS)  S.V. Talcott, (SVT) and many others. All can be found in most local libraries and/or genealogical libraries. In summary, this bibliography is broken into sections on books, census records, historical societies, genealogists, city, and county offices, library and history centers.
