New Internet Resource: American Pioneer Series by Jeannette Holland Austin

The American Pioneer Series, an encyclopedic database of more than one million names is being added to Kentucky Pioneers This work is the personal collection of Jeannette Holland Austin, Georgia author of over 100 genealogy books, and was used as personal source of information for almost fifty years. Most persons were not published elsewhere and the tool is of momentous value to researchers, particularly those having ancestors in the original thirteen colonies. The entries are encyclopedic and consist of referenced materials from census, marriages, passenger lists, bibles, military, cemeteries, obituaries, quotations from quarterlies, magazines, books, newspapers and so on. It is a marvelously unique collection of family histories and notes which do not appear elsewhere; some photographs. The American Pioneer Series is now available over the internet for the first time and is recommended as a tool for individuals and libraries. The undertaking to prepare the material for internet viewers was labor-intensive and costly. The final result is published in 26 volumes. Because of its enormous size, Ms. Austin decided not to publish the volumes into books but as agreed to make it available to subscribers of Pioneer Families United States and International copyright laws apply; but subscribers have all rights pertaining to using it for their personal needs, as well as making copies.
