Genealogies of Early Americans

The genealogy books described on this site are available to you now. The primary focus is on families that arrived in America before 1650. They may be good sources for growing your family tree. The books are prepared following modern standards of format and documentation. They contain obituaries, extensive biographies and many photographs. Genealogies of some of these families have appeared in the past. However, sources of their information are often lacking and many errors were made. In these new genealogies many of these problems are fixed. Another important enhancement is the inclusion of female lines of descent. Features of these new genealogies:
