Patriotic and hereditary societies require that all persons applying for
membership to their organizations provide proof of descent from a particular
person living at a particular time during a particular event. By virtue of their
own stringent requirements, hereditary societies such as the Daughters of the
American Revolution, the Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, the Order of the
Crown of Charlemagne, the General Society of the War of 1812, and the Colonial
Dames of America have become repositories of a class of records that document
the pedigrees, or lineages, of their members. Over the years these lineage
records have grown into a formidable body of genealogical data, much of which
has been published in the form of lineage books, pedigree charts, membership
rosters, and indexes. In the process of linking society members to a colonial
forebear, a Revolutionary War patriot, or a descendant of the Emperor
Charlemagne, or some similar personage, these published lineage records provide
a wealth of detail few other records can rival: name of ancestor, dates of birth
and death, name of wife, colony or state of residence, and names of descendants,
to mention only a few of the most significant details.
The best of these lineage books have been published by the Genealogical
Publishing Company, and they are all now available on this CD, which also
contains an electronic index to all 440,000 persons named! Like other CDs, it is
designed to simplify genealogical research by combining the images of pages of
selected volumes published by GPC with a single name index, which allows you to
search all the volumes quickly and effortlessly. A search on a single name will
turn up all references to that name found in any of the following volumes:
*Pedigrees of Some of the Emperor Charlemagne's Descendants. 3 vols.
*Lineages of Members of the National Society of Sons and Daughters of the
Pilgrims. 3 vols.
*Index of the Rolls of Honor (Ancestor's Index) in the Lineage Books of the
