Updated Index to the "Phelps Family in America"

Places, Maiden Names Add 250 Pages to Phelps Family Index

Well-known to many Phelps family researchers is the two-volume book, The Phelps Family of America and Their English Ancestors, by Judge Oliver Seymour Phelps and Andrew T. Servin.

About the Phelps Family in America Books

The books trace the descendants of primarily two immigrants, William Phelps and George Phelps, who came to America from England. Starting with the first generation on American soil, it traces the descendants through 1899, when the book was published.

The book The Phelps Family of America and Their English Ancestors by Phelps & Servin erroneously concluded based on nothing more than an approximate birth date for William that both he and George Phelps were from Tewkesbury, England. William and George Phelps are not brothers and are from Crewkene. For details, see Origins of William and George Phelps of Dorchester.

Updated Index Adds Value to 1899 Books

While the original books were published with an index standard for its time, the index is largely restricted to male surnames and is of limited use to many researchers. An expanded index containing place names and the maiden names of all female spouses adds a lot of value to the original volumes. The updated index is free at Updated Index to the Phelps Family in America. To get your own reprints of the original books, order The Phelps Family in America and Their English Ancestors.
