     The Honorable Hiram Carleton was a prominent Vermont judge and six time president of the Vermont Historical Society. About 1900 he was commissioned by the Lewis Publishing Company to prepare this wonderful collection of illustrated biographical and genealogical essays of noted Vermonters and their families. The arrangement and contents of these two volumes established a pattern for which the Lewis Publishing Company would become famous over the first quarter of this century. The Introduction explains Vermont's unique place among the states and draws attention to milestones in its history. The sketches or essays that follow trace family history forward from the oldest known ancestor of the line to the family member featured in the sketch, for whom, in turn, a biography often with photographs provided. This is frequently followed by additional collateral lines linked to the subject of the essay. Many of the lineage's go back to 16th century England, still others emphasis connections to Massachusetts and the other New England states.

About Our CDs

      Many of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject areas.  Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications.  Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages of research information.  The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher.  Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire  hence often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the cost of  a CD. The average cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable to as many home researchers as possible.
