Babb Families of America (2009) 4th Edition

This electronic only edition of the Babb Families of America was produced upon the successful digitization of the 3rd Edition of Babb Families of America by Jean A. Sargent. It was a 3 year project and I was pleasantly surprised to find the high caliber of Jean’s work.

She famously shunned computers, never had an email address and did all her work on an Electronic Typewriter. 99% of her work checked out and it would be 5 more years before I was able to begin stepping out of her shadow and making major discoveries of my own.

Designed for Researchers who want unlimited access to the collected papers of Jean A Sargent, who researched the Babb Families of America and Ian Henry Babb (who did the same for the Babb Families in England). In all 23,000 pages of documentation and correspondence. from their combined 60 year body of work. This collection forms the backbone of my book series “Babb Unabridged” and will include older editions of the books themselves as they become.

Let’s build something together.
