HE purpose of this work is, principally, to register in a convenient and simple form the pedigree of any one person, and thus record for all time many important facts in the history of families which would otherwise be lost. Another primary object is to publish here the ancestry of a person as complete as it is known, as a means of obtaining additional information regarding it. It is also designed to be a convenient work of reference, to show the origin of the various American families. However indifferent some may affect to be regarding this question of ancestry, those who have a good pedigree will usually have a natural pride in it. Many lineages must of necessity contain nothing but simple records of uneventful generations, but they will preserve facts of great interest to descendants which would otherwise in many cases be lost in the history of a family. The plan of the work is somewhat similar in idea to the well-known English works, but altered to suit the conditions of American society, and in detail is as follows: The surname or family name is given first, with the given name, residence, birthplace, and date of birth. This is followed by remarks of a brief biographical character, giving the principal events in the individual's life, such as occupation, college degrees if any, author ship, public service, experiences, and if married, date, wife's name and parentage, with remarks relating to her ancestry. If the individual whose lineage is given had brothers the same facts may be stated respecting each of them, in order of their birth, commencing with the eldest. 'this completes the first generation in tracing back the lineage. Next is given the father's name, followed by same class of facts, and so continued back in male line as far as can be traced. The name of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed in black type. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to mention them here.
