"What's New"
A new feature has been added:
New Databases for both Ancestry & Family Search
April: 2021 - Use this Link




Family Search: Historical Images
Records that are not available with the traditional FS Search
The Explanation:
The Resources are wonderful, but the search parameters 
and functions can be intimidating to the novice FS Catalog Researcher.


The Types of Information:

Births, Biographies, Cemetery, Church Records, Citizenship Petitions, 
Court Records, 
Deaths & DC's, Deeds, Docket, Ct Orphan Rec's, 
Grantor / Grantee Rec's, Land Records, Marriage & Marriage Licenses, 
Military Discharge Rec's, Naturalizations, 'Soldier Rec's', 
Tax Records, Probates, Warrants, Wills 


Locations & Time Frame: 
Baden, Beaver County proper : 1775 - 1969

So...
The following will help you get a handle on information that 
could be of value to your search for Family data.

Use the chart linked here for the Film #
To access the Historical Images, log into your FS Account:
Click on Search, then at the top of the page: Historical Images:
You can begin with the search, but if you get lost or cannot figure it
all out, then use the chart linked above.

So...Then...

Backtrack to Search, Catalog, and plug in the 
DGS Film number of interest 
from the Chart in the 'Fiche-Film' slot.



"Gleanings"
The Chart below represents Indexes I have created over the years.
All of the files are on Google Drive and can be read online or downloaded.
