SOURCES

A PARTIAL list of suggestions. Compiled by Gloria Barnes Harper (Mrs. N.V. Harper), Honorary President General, ADEAW, April, 2000


The best sources are the original records, such as vital and court records, from the towns and state.


Family trees by family name can be good secondary sources, if the book uses original sources. Example: The Barnes Genealogy, Thomas Barnes of Hartford and Farmington, Connecticut.
