Babb Unabridged (2015-2017) 1st Edition

Babb Unabridged, the book series, supersedes the Babb Families of America and Babb Families of New England — And Beyond. The name change became necessary as we had outgrown the US and incorporated the learnings of Ian Henry Babb who spent his life researching the Babbs in England.

This series only discusses the Babbs of English origin wherever we find them. Much has been learned since this edition was started and you will note two different styles of books. The first volumes were produced manually in Microsoft Word. I later discovered a tool that did the book assembly for me and put it to use starting with Volume 9.

I wanted to go back and redo the first editions to match, since it gives a much improved research experience. As I sat down to do that in late 2018 I quickly realized just how far we have come since then and had to reshape the series and it has become the 2nd Edition which will be for sale on this website.

Unlike Jean A. Sargent, I embrace technology and run a completely digital operation. It allows me to move swiftly as the tree continues to grow exponentially and issue new additions with the updated information.

We have learned an amazing amount about the Babbs in America since Volumes 1-6 were produced and those changes will reflect in the 2nd Edition.

I hope you enjoy your first look at the digital version of Babb Unabridged!
