Passenger arrivals at the Port of Charleston, 1820-1829 by Brent Holcomb( Book )

Official passenger lists for the port of Charleston--be they Customs Passenger Lists or State Department Transcripts--exist only for the years 1820-1829. This work, compiled by South Carolina genealogist Brent Holcomb, captures this unique body of genealogical data on the several thousand people who managed to slip into Charleston through a relatively narrow window of time. Most were from Great Britain and Ireland, and most were young, most were male, and most were unskilled farmers and laborers. The lists themselves are arranged in the order in which they are found in the original, and all names in the lists are accessible by means of the name index at the back of the volume. The data in each entry, arranged in tabular format, is as follows: name of vessel, name of passenger, age, sex, date of arrival, occupation, where the passenger is from, country to which he belongs, and country which he intends to inhabit.--From publisher description

Marriages of Orange County, North Carolina, 1779-1868 by Brent Holcomb( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the appearance of this work, researchers of all stripes can set aside some of their concerns about the lack of published reference materials on Orange County, North Carolina. Marriages of Orange County contains abstracts of all the marriage bonds issued in Orange County from 1779 until 1868, when marriage bonds--as prerequisites for marriage--were discontinued. These marriage records were abstracted from a microfilm copy of the original marriage bonds on file at the State Archives in Raleigh and refer altogether to some 20,000 persons, including bondsmen. In keeping with the format established by Mr. Holcomb in his other volumes of North Carolina marriage records, the data are arranged throughout in alphabetical order by the surname of the groom; and each entry includes the name of the bride, the date of the bond, the name of the bondsman, and, from 1851, the date of the actual marriage" -- publisher website (August 2007)
