"A List of Genealogies Being Compiled"

Privately Printed by Seymour Morris

Chicago, 1896

This is a transcription of a rare booklet listing persons who were compiling information, writing, or planning to write genealogy books and monographs, mainly pertaining to old New England families, back 110 years ago. Some of their projects may have been published or privately distributed to family members and interested subscribers. Despite the researchers' good intentions after years of collecting data and writing and receiving letters, "things happen" and some books and manuscripts were probably not completed or written up. Whatever the outcome, in the mid-1890s the individual researchers listed below were corresponding with descendants of their families and surnames of interest, and likely had accumulated letters and piles of notes, as well as been given access to or copies of original documents & family bibles, long-lost public and church records, photographs, etc.

What happened to all of this material? Some of their accumulated research material was likely passed down in families or donated to an historical society, library or museum over the years. We all dream about discovering papers and pictures that might still be out there, stored in attics or drawers after generations, or sitting uncatalogued and forgotten on institutional shelves or in unsorted boxes of papers. My intent in purchasing this booklet to type up for online researchers was my belief that awareness of the names and locations of these 19th century researchers could assist 21st century researchers in seeking extant caches of documentation that survived backyard bonfires or being tossed out at the curb. If one knows that there's something to look for, and has the clues of name / place / time period, it just might turn up.

All spellings, punctuation, and obvious typos or misprints are exactly as in the original and will not be changed. Addresses given may be home addresses or work addresses, as well as post office boxes. Thank you in advance for not emailing the transcriber, who has no information about the results of any of these researchers' efforts or whether books or articles were ever written, widely published, or otherwise distributed.

If you are a member of any of the Families herein mentioned, it would be an excellent idea to write the genealogist of that family telling him all you know about your ancestors and others bearing the name. By so doing you can assist in advancing the date of the publication of the work.
