No, I don't think so. These books are now fragile, and have been microfilmed. I read through these time-consuming books because I was trying to find answers to identification and other events of people in these. One drawer had names indexed, though, for ca. 1703 to 1706 while others are of later date and I can't remember which ones had an index in the back and others not. These consist of court entries for all kinds of things, such as selling liquor and spirits illegally, having or siring a baseborn child, or non-payment of debts and that kind of thing. I have done a lot of traveling to Annapolis for the last while and now need to stop because it is just too expensive. I do plan to go back one more time to finish some essential odds and ends but that would be it for this winter. Next spring I might look more. If you can give me an idea of Benjamin Ijams' age along with Sarah Ijams, I could try one judgement book... Otherwise I would recommend that you write to the Maryland Archives in Annapolis and see if they can think of a way to help you? I do know one researcher there and he may be willing to negotiate if that is the only recourse you have at present.
