More Description


This volume contains genealogical extracts from Portrait and Biographical Record of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The original contained portraits of citizens of the past and present, together with portraits and biographies of the presidents of the United States, published by Chapman Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1898. Information was gathered by a corps of writers who interviewed the subjects of the biographies. "In attempting to reduce the size of this material I the editor] have eliminated as much unnecessary wording as possible. The original contains much in the way of aggrandizing the accomplishments of the individual. I the editor] have tried to remove this while retaining some of the unique events and characterizations...." This book includes 775 biographies; with over 11,000 names. Many biographies describe several generations, often back to the emigrant ancestor. "No genealogical data or family relationships have been omitted from the original." An every-name index adds to the value of this work.
