Southern Family History Genealogies #1, 1600s-1800s

The six volumes that make up Notable Southern Families are among the best known works on Southern genealogy ever published. Begun in 1918 and completed in 1932, Notable Southern Families is a collection of family histories that include thousands of individuals of Cavalier, Scotch-Irish, and Huguenot heritage.

Historical Southern Families contains genealogies that cover a broad spectrum of Southern genealogy. Each volume in the series, compiled by John Bennett Boddie, contains a number of lineages that run from a few pages each to several hundred.

Depending on the original genealogy, what you can learn about each listed individual varies. For the most part, however, you can learn an ancestor’s birth date, baptism date, marriage date, occupation, and death date. Articles include general information on entire families including information on education, residence, and wills. With this information, you will be able to gain a more complete understanding of your ancestors and their lives.
