- Pedigrees of Some of the Emperor Charlemagne's Descendants, Volumes
A distinguished collection, these volumes detail pedigrees of descent from
Charlemagne that can be proven without a doubt. The progeny of Royal Houses
of Europe that trace back to Charlemagne are listed in chronological order
under their respective Houses. Each line is carefully documented, generation
by generation, and has been verified and approved by Timothy F. Beard, Genealogist
General of the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne. Each chapter is headed with
the name of the immigrant ancestor through whom the descent is traced, followed
by each family name in the line of descent in America. For each member of
the family included here, you'll learn information of their birth, marriage,
children, connecting lines, station, distinctions, and honors. Among the lineages,
you'll also find a chapter on "Charlemagne and His Children," by Professor
J. A. Cabannis, and a lengthy survey of contemporary genealogical scholarship
by Timothy Beard.
- Lineages of Members of the National Society of Sons And Daughters of
the Pilgrims, Volumes I-III
In more than 1000 pages, these volumes record the lineages of thousands of
members of the National Society of the Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims.
Generation by generation, descent is traced from the earliest immigrant ancestor
to the present member of the Society, the sole condition of membership being
that the ancestor must have arrived in the colonies between 1620 and 1700.
Each of the lineage records contains the names of all ancestors in the direct
line of descent complete with birth, marriage, and death dates.
- Index of the Rolls of Honor (Ancestor's Index) in the Lineage Books of
the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Volumes
Published by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution,
Lineage Books include abstracts of the pedigrees of members. These show lines
of descent from one or more ancestors who contributed to the Revolutionary
cause. By 1940, the National Society had produced some 160 volumes. Each volume
contained approximately 1,000 lineages and included an index to the Revolutionary
ancestors (called the "Roll of Honor") as well as an index to the "Daughters"
whose pedigrees were included in the volume. Recognizing the need for a convenient
key to the lineages, the Daughters of the American Revolution (between 1916
and 1940) produced indexes to the 50,000 Revolutionary ancestors in the "Rolls
of Honor" and their 160,000 "Daughters." This work is the quickest guide to
Revolutionary ancestors and their descendants.
- Founders and Patriots of America Index
This volume contains information gleaned from lineages submitted by members
of the National Society of Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America.
Each lineage lists the name of the Founder ancestor who arrived in one of
the Colonies between May 13, 1607 and May 13, 1687, and a Patriot ancestor
who gave military service, civil service, or other aid in establishing American
independence in the period from 1775 to 1784. More than just an index to the
lineages, each listing gives: date of birth/death of each Founder and Patriot;
date of marriage; spouse's name; name of the State in which the Founder settled;
and volume number/name where the full lineage record showing descent is detailed.
The Founder and Patriot of a given lineage are linked by volume and page number.
This index links the Founder ancestor to the Patriot ancestor and serves as
a reference to the lineage record showing descent from both.
- Ancestral Records and Portraits: Colonial Dames of America, Volumes
I and II
A standard reference set, these two volumes embody a valuable collection of
pedigrees and collateral pedigrees of members of Chapter I of the Colonial
Dames of America who trace themselves back to the Colonial Period. Since Chapter
I was the Baltimore chapter, most of the members were residents of Maryland.
Even though, the records include families from all of the original Colonies.
The records are arranged in alphabetical order according to the names of the

many of the Americans whose lineages are included in this work were members
of the various state societies of the Colonial Dames.
- Hereditary Order of Descendants of Colonial Governors
This work lays out the 323 proven lines of descent from the 87 men who served
as Governor of one of the colonies of British North America. Each lineage
furnishes a brief sketch on the member, the name of the Colonial Governor
ancestor, the details of the line of descent, and, in a number of instances,
supplemental lineages approved by the Genealogist General of the Order.
- The Order of Americans of Armorial Ancestry, Lineage of Members

is based on the right to "bear coat armor" in the country of their origin.

of 300 coats-of-arms. Preceding the arms themselves is a very helpful glossary
of heraldic terms.

- The Roster and Register of the General Society of the War of 1812
This three volume set represents the most important collection of lineage
records relating to the War of 1812. Society membership is solely based on
proof of descent from an ancestor who rendered service in the War of 1812.
Founded in 1894, the purpose of the Society of the War of 1812 is to commemorate
the veterans of the war, to perpetuate their memory, and to collect and preserve
artifacts and records of the war. Typically, each lineage gives the name,
date and place of birth, date of marriage, spouse's name, and date and place
of death. The lineage then fills in the pedigree of each member going back
at least to the 1812 Patriot from whom he is descended. Most of the lines
in the pedigree give the names of the male of the line, his wife's maiden
name, their dates of birth and death, and their date of marriage. All the
pedigrees have been authenticated by the Society of the War of 1812. In addition
to lineages, you'll also find a history of the Society, lists of founding
veteran members, chronicles of state societies (each a mini-history in itself),
and a list of archival sources drawn on in the compilation.
