Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788420607, Paperback)

The researcher will find many famous and recognizable names in this work, several of which also relate to the early days of Virginia. This remarkable book contains more than 200 genealogies of persons admitted into membership by the Society between 1905 (the year of publication of the first volume) and 1940. Arranged in alphabetical order by member, most of these genealogies go back seven or eight generations. Many of the lineages are traced well beyond the qualifying Colonial Wars ancestor to that individual’s predecessor in the colonies and the mother country—sometimes ten or eleven generations in all. As many as 30,000 persons descending from, or ascending to, the qualifying ancestors are to be found within these pages. Most entries contain name, date of birth and date of death. Some entries also include date of marriage; a few entries consist of name only. An additional useful feature of this book is a directory containing the ancestor’s service record which qualifies for Colonial Wars Society membership, other services or honors pertaining to the ancestor’s career, and the names of the descended members.
