On Sunday, I wrote about the Oneida Community as a part of my Church Record Sunday. At my presentation yesterday at the North County San Diego Genealogical Society I actually met someone with ancestors who were members of the Oneida Community. I almost fell over-mostly because The Oneidas were a small group so the chances are slim of meeting anyone, especially a few days after writing the post.
She told me about a book that would help researchers of the Oneida Community, beyond what I wrote about on Sunday. The book is entitled, The Oneida Family, Genealogy of a 19th Century Perfectionist Commune by John B. Teeple. This book was a limited run. If you go to Calcat (www.calcat.org) you can look it up for the complete bibliographic record. It look as thought the only California library to own a copy is at UC Davis. World Cat shows 8 libraries in the US that own it including the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
This book includes a surname index and photos.
