This three-disk set contains images from the pages of all seven volumes of Frederick Virkus’s “Compendium of American Genealogy.” The Compendium–perhaps the most famous work in all of American genealogy–contains the lineage records of the first families of America, with records extending in both male and female lines from the earliest-known immigrant ancestor (giving his place and date of origin) to the then (1925-1942) living subject of the record. According to the first census there were about 650,000 families living in the United States in 1790, practically every one of which was of colonial or Revolutionary ancestry and thus entitled to be numbered among America’s “First Families.” Every lineage record in the Compendium, therefore, spans at least eight or nine generations.
