Every-Name Index for the Two Volumes of History of Frederick County, Maryland, by T.J.C. Williams and Folger McKinsey; by Patricia A. Fogle; Published: 2002; Reprinted: 2008; 220 pp; Paperback; ISBN: 9780806351902; Item # CF9780D
For all of its magnificence, this irreplaceable work has a major shortcoming--it lacks an every-name index. Now, thanks to the prodigious efforts of Patricia A. Fogle, a complete name index to Williams and McKinsey's History of Frederick County, Maryland. Like the work it is based upon, the index is divided into two parts. The index to Volume I (the historical narrative) takes up the first third of Mrs. Fogle's effort, while the remaining two thirds cover the genealogical sketches in Volume II. All told, the researcher will find more than 40,000 individuals named in this index. All individuals or libraries who currently own the History of Frederick County, Maryland will want to purchase Mrs. Fogle's finding aid as an invaluable companion to the original volumes. Those researching Frederick County who do not own the History but can gain access to the base volumes will also want to keep Mrs. Fogle's Index on hand, since it unlocks an enormous number of links to the county's past.
