Bob Nelson's List of Reference Works
As with any researcher, the genealogist stands on
the shoulders of those who have gone before. The data in my database
owes a hege debt to those who, often without the benefit of modern technology
communications, compiled, organized, and published information concerning these
The following is a list of sources my collaborators and I have found useful. Not all of them have been
fully incorporated into my data base, but when I have brought them in,
I have attempted to include all birth/death/marriage/burial
dates and locations. To each such piece of data, a source record is attached,
indicating on which page number the datum was found. This allows researchers
to request individual pages of interest through inter-library loan. Where sources
conflict, I have either included both pieces of information, or added a note indicating
which one was not included and mentioning why.
The list of sources below shows those works I have used and those I plan on incorporating
later. Those with an asterisk (*) in front of the title have been added. Those with a "+"
are in the process of being added. If you have a recommendation for additions to this list, please contact me.
Note: You might try
for some of these volumes. I have no connection with this company, I've just ordered
from them in the past.
