The Third edition of this vital genealogical resource for those with Virginia ancestors. "The purpose of this volume has been to develop the descendants of the following groups: 1. Adventurers of purse who either came to Virginia in the period 1607-1625 and had descendants or who did not come to Virginia within that period but whose grandchildren were residents there. 2. Immigrants to Virginia, i.e. Adventurers of person, 1607-1625 who left descendants. There are 109 individuals who have been identified as qualifying in these groups. The descendants of each of the 109 individuals are presented through three generations, bringing the history of the family of that individual through the seventeenth century." (p. xv).
