|Summary Note||Summary: "This series is designed to identify the kind of material that is available in the absence of church registers and will supplement the church registers when they are available. Volume One deals with the county of Argyll, a location from where may of the pioneer emigrants who settled in colonial North Carolina, upper New York, Jamaica, and the Canadian Maritimes originated. The book does not claim to be a comprehensive directory of all the people of Argyll during the mid-eighteenth century but rather is an attempt to demonstrate the range and quality of material available." |
