All people typically leave records of births and deaths, marriages, education, employment, religious and political affiliations, military service, property ownership, and relationships to government and the law, ranging from paying taxes and registering a business, to annuity rolls, and church records. The Gale Family Library has many of these records, as well as additional valuable items.
