Some score of years since there issued from the New England press Whit more's American Genealogies, with its enumeration of a few dozen titles upon the subject of family history. Today, the thousands of works mentioned in the following pages do not, probably, include nearly all of the pedigrees which have been printed in this country, although it is trusted that the most important ones have been noted. No reference has been made, except in a few instances, to county histories, or to the numerous genealogical periodicals, such works being without the scope of this enumeration. A few chart pedi grees have been included.
Many of the volumes here catalogued are of rare excellence both in con tents and manufacture, whilst others, although well-intended efforts, show a lack of genealogical ability and a surprising preponderance of credulity, especially where an attempt is made to connect the family written about with some ancient English house. It is not, however, the privilege of the compiler to criticize any of the books named, all of which contain much that is valuable. The special feature claimed for the present list is that, wherever possible, the unabridged title page of each book is given, thus indicating, in nearly every instance, the locality where the family resided, and the city or town in which the genealogy was printed.
It is believed that besides being of great value to those directly interested in the genealogy of their family, and particularly to persons connected with the various patriotic heredity societies, the present bibliography cannot fail to be of much use to biographers, historians and librarians throughout the country.
