Sherida K. Eddlemon to Publish on FamilyTrackers

Sherida K. Eddlemon, a genealogist with over 15 years of publishing experience has selected FamilyTrackers to publish and distribute her private collection of original and rare genealogical documents over the Internet.

A joint effort announced today by Sherida K. Eddlemon and FamilyTrackers, Inc. will allow Internet users to search a host of genealogical records that have never been available to the public before now. According to Eddlemon, “I have collected these records all of my adult life because I wanted them to be preserved – saved for relatives who may be searching for this information.” The records include extensive collections of information in Illinois, Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and New York in the United States.

Many of the items are non-traditional resources like Masonic records and work histories that include information about the activities of the people mentioned in the documents. Eddlemon says that, “Many traditional sources include just names and dates without much more information about the person. “

The first publication in this series will include images of the pages from the 1925 Masonic Directory from Springfield, Illinois.

“We are delighted to work with Sherida on this important project and happy that she recognizes the unique benefits of publishing on FamilyTrackers. Our system will match these new records with existing FamilyTrackers searches and with new searches entered later. Searches entered now will be compared with Sherida’s additional publications as they are added,” according to Gene Hall, CEO of FamilyTrackers. Membership and searching activities are free on FamilyTrackers. Individual items are priced by publishers according to the rarity and difficulty in extracting the information.

Sherida K. Eddlemon is a genealogist located in Tennessee and has published dozens of books including major works on birth, death, and marriage records in Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi, New York, Arkansas and Tennessee.

FamilyTrackers is a California corporation established as a tool to help genealogists find and track information about their families all over the world.
