RECORDS OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF CLAIMS

(SOUTHERN CLAIMS COMMISSION)

1871 – 1880

 

Geographical List of Claims

The National Archives

Washington:  1946

 

National Archives Microfilm Publication M87 – Roll 13

 

Introductory Note

 

            The volume microcopied on this roll is labeled on its front cover “List of Claims,” and is numbered 55, the last volume in the numbered volumes of records of the Commissioners of Claims, otherwise known as the Southern Claims Commission. The volume is undated.

 

            It consists of a printed list of claimants, arranged alphabetically by names of States, thereunder by names of counties, and thereunder by names of claimants, with the serial number and amount of each claim presented to the Commissioners. All the claims, totaling 22,298, are included.  The sheets of the volume are ruled to permit manuscript annotations. These are confined to “allowed” and “disallowed,” written opposite a few of the claims. The fact that the action taken with respect to most of the claims is not indicated suggests that the volume was not long used as a record of action taken.

 

            The volume is part of a body of records in the National Archives designated as Record Group No. 56, General Records of the Department of the Treasury.
