    Southern Claim Commission Fich

    Bevan Lindsey Newbie

      I have found Mile R Lindsey Commission #16521 Office 51 /8/ Year1878 D (cong 6632)

      Would I be correct to request Fich 2766?

          Hi Bevan,

           

          Yes, you can request that microfiche. These aren't our records, but it looks like the claim is on ancestry.com if you have a subscription or can visit a library or archives that has access.

           

          Through a quick search, it looks like the SCC file was removed by the Court of Claims (RG 123). Many disallowed claims were then appealed to the Court of Claims. You can contact Civil Reference at Archives 1 (downtown DC) for the file:
