About the Book
This is the latest version of "Adams: A Family Album" completed November, 2010. It's primarily a compilation of hundreds of priceless old family photos dating to the late 1800s. In an effort to bring the subjects to life for the viewer, I've incorporated a brief history of my Adams lineage that covers many of the photo's subjects as well as early Adams dating back to the 1600s. I also included a comprehensive family tree that records 12 generations of Adams. I concluded the book with maps (showing the route traveled by early ancestors), information on the final resting place of several primary family members, and images of several old documents (wills, mortgages, etc.).
This book is very comprehensive in regards to my family history but, without a doubt, it will be a life-long project. As I acquire more documents, information and photos the book will be updated.
