Fellow Genea-blogger, Randy Seaver, asked anyone if they were related to the Barber line. Yes, I am, I replied. What an adventure my Barber line has been!
I decided to look up the beginnings of what I have learned about the man called Moses Barber of Rhode Island.
I pay for a subscription to Genealogy.com just because they have offered access online to some important Rhode Island Records.
I discovered that, for some reason, the images that I found there are not available at this time, so I have to pull the large binder and scan the pages (with references) so Randy and I can see how we are related.
The RI Genealogical Society offered me copies of some, but not all, of the bound copies of the RI Genealogical Register. I gratefully accepted. I have been looking at them a volume at a time, when I have the time. These books are referred to as Beaman because Dr. Alden G. Beaman and his daughter compiled them. I am lucky in that two of my families are "featured".
I thought you might like to see Vol. 1 and 2 and the exact reprints of the beginning of the part about Moses Barber.
