This week’s Wonderbase at WorldVitalRecords.com includes70 family histories and pedigrees from Godfrey Memorial Library. These databases will be launched throughout the week.

Some databases feature the movers and shakers of 18th and 19th-century United States of America, including former presidents and military men. You may know the way they changed the shape of world history, but through our offerings you can also learn about their personal and family lives.

Andrew Jackson, Seventh President of the United States and The Great Impeachment and Trial of Andrew Johnson, President of the United States.
Stonewall Jackson’s contribution to American history is undoubtedly significant. Read about it in Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War (Volumes 1 and 2). Our ancestors could be great even if they are not famous throughout the world. The Descendants of John Brockett, One of the Original Founders of New Haven Colony shows that even without fame or money, people could be great, and forever change the lives of their descendants and community.
