Below is a list of some of the source materials I have used to create this website.
Numerous resources are available to genealogists working on Delaware families in addition to the wealth of information passed down through the generations including personal stories, bibles, photographs etc.
Churches have always played a central role in any community and are an excellent source of information. Unfortunately some records & graveyards are better maintained than others. In some instances, old markers have disappeared (if they ever existed), some are so weathered as to be unreadible.
A small e-mail group, composed originally of descendants of the mixed blood Kent Co. Delaware community, began several years ago. It has grown to such proportions that a special listserve has been created to service the growing number of researchers.
