Babb Families of New England (1987)

This book is Jean A. Sargent’s first foray into assembling the larger Babb tree. She co-wrote the book with Ina Mansur who passed away before the 2nd edition which was titled Babb Families of America.

She had yet to realize how vast the tree actually was and focused on the descendants of Phillip Babb of the Isles of Shoals (1) and Benjamin Babb of Middletown, CT (2).

There are serious problems with some of the research and I submit it here as a way to see the progression of her work over time.

I strongly recommend that you NOT use it to incorporate into your tree without further research.

Future editions were far more accurate and are part of this collection as well.

The Babb Family Association owns the copyright to this and all of Jean’s works. For this reason the book will be watermarked with a 2D tag that identifies the subscriber’s contact information and should not be shared outside of your immediate family.
