The National Society Sons and Daughters of Antebellum Planters (NSSDAP) was organized on October 19, 1997, in Washington, D.C. Its stated objectives include “to identify and honor the memory of ancestors who were ‘planters’ within lands today comprising the 48 states of the continental United States between 1607 and April 12, 1861 . . . [and] to produce and distribute publications of all kinds relating to the history and genealogy of such ‘planters.'” A rich new resource for all researchers searching for pre-Civil War ancestors, their Lineage Book 1 provides the following particulars on each of the 268+ documented planter descendants: full name and place of birth of the NSSDAP “son” or “daughter” and a generation-by-generation pedigree connecting the member to his colonial and antebellum planter, which includes the names and dates of birth and death of spouses in each generation and a reference to the source(s) of the information. Most of the lineages range over eight generations, and in many cases over fourteen or more. The name index to the lineage volume refers to between 6,500 and 7,000 persons in the ancestry of its members. Besides the lineages and index, readers will find much useful information in the front matter to the work, including a brief history of the organization, lists of officers, names of founding and charter members, NSSDAPÔÇÖs stated purposes and admission policies, and more.
