While looking through mounds of paperwork for information on kidnappings I came across this information that I wrote down quite sometime ago.
  I don't know from source this came from because back then I was dummer than now on doing genealogy so I can't help there.

   should have papers w/permission to emigrate.
   1. departure records are generally kept under       jurisdiction of port of departure.
   2. or by the state or natational gov. where the       emigrant lived, such as permission to emigrate.
   Need to Know:
 1.  emigrants state or region of residence
 2.  and/or port of departure

  Hope this information will help someone.  I am still trying to find out about records for kidnappings.  These kidnappings took place for indentured servants.

  Does anyone on the list know what the "Outer Liberties" of Philadelphia entailed in the 1700's?
