Evidently there are queries placed in Boston Transcript, a genealogy newspaper. I was looking for Harvey Geer. I came across two entries. One in CT and the other in NY. When I was at the CT State Library, I asked one of staff person how I find the information. The book lists the week and the query number assigned to the query. This information is on micro fische.
