About the Data

This data set contains images of the pages from all twenty-three volumes of Historical Southern Families and all six volumes of Notable Southern Families. Originally published by the Genealogical Publishing Company, these volumes contain information about approximately 132,000 individuals.

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. Compiled by Zella Armstrong, most of the family histories trace lineage to the author of the genealogy.

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.

These volumes were provided by the Genealogical Publishing Company of Baltimore, Maryland.
