Found: Brooklyn, New York guardianship records (1830s-1852)

Today I have pride in an extremely good deed done by a fellow genealogist. Sandra M. Hewlett (Sandi) returned some missing early Surrogate’s Court records to Brooklyn according to today’s Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The article states, “The record books, Brooklyn’s “Bonds of Guardianship, Vol. 1 through 4,” date back to 1830 and record the details of guardianships through 1852. The historic volumes were found last year at a used bookstore in Philadelphia by professional genealogist Sandra Hewlett.” Sandi is a Board-certified genealogist. 

I am particularly pleased because there might be some clues in there related to my brother-in-law’s family.
