Cabbages & Kings

We have added a group of “articles” to our website which may be of interest to genealogists. You will find lists of ships that came to the early American colonies, lists of pastors of churches and superintendents of schools, and rosters of Confederate soldiers. As the Walrus said, “Now is the time to talk of cabbages and kings.” Take a look at the list below and click on the link which may interest you.

All of these items are submitted by members of Root Seekers Genealogical Society in Mabank. Since so many things can be found on Ancestry or through a search engine, we are focusing on original items or items that are of special interest to the individual member but which may be of interest to other researchers as well.
