Slowly, this website is taking shape with material that began as a “simple” project that I referred to in the beginning as merely A COLLECTION OF FAMILY HISTORY NOTES.  It has evolved into an accumulation of thousands of documents, records, photos, articles, books and other material gathered mostly from secondary sources available in libraries or digital archives (many of which are stored on my web server and available for downloading, copyright considerations permitting).  In addition to the source material, I have written hundreds of pages of narrative to tie these materials together in a semblance of an ordered state.

The Hylbom Family Ancestry Project does NOT purport to be a work of original research.  I am an amateur geneaologist and historian, and what I have learned has been winnowed imperfectly and is only as good as the secondary sources I have consulted.  The links below will connect you to library items stored on my web server.  Some of these files are rather large and may take a while to download.  I have also included bibiographical citations (without links) to certain important references that are still under copyright protection.  I have posted an article entitled “Copyright Fundamentals for Genealogy” which explains how various aspects of copyright law may apply to a genealogical blog, such as the one you are reading.  If any reader has a concern regarding the use of material on this website in relation to these issues, please contact me directly using my Contact Form.

Hugh Jones’s most well known work is based on his first several years of residence in America, and remains a primary resource for Virginia’s colonial history. The book was occasioned, he wrote, by his finding that “few people in England (even many concerned in public affairs of this kind) have correct Notions of the true State of the Plantations [Colonies], and having been eagerly applied to frequently by Persons of the greatest Figure, Experience and Judgment in political and national Concerns, for Information concerning all the Circumstances of Virginia, [he] was requested to digest methodically and publish what [he] knew and thought of these Matters.”

  279. Young, Raymond Chester (ed.). Westward into Kentucky (The University Press of Kentucky) 1981.  In his youth Daniel Trabue (1760-1840) served as a Virginia soldier in the Revolutionary War. After three years of service on the Kentucky frontier, he returned home to participate as a soldier in the Yorktown campaign. Following the war he settled in the Piedmont, but by 1785 his yearning to return westward led him to take his family to Kentucky, where they settled for a few years in the upper Green River country. He recorded his narrative in 1827, in the town of Columbia, of which he was a founder. A keen observer of people and events, Trabue captures experiences of everyday life in both the Piedmont and frontier Kentucky. His notes on the settling of Kentucky touch on many important moments in the opening of the Bluegrass region. Chester Raymond Young (1920-1999) was professor of history and chairman of the Department of History and Political Science at Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Kentucky. Daniel Blake Smith is professor of history at the University of Kentucky. This volume contains a less edited version of Daniel Trabue’s journal than the book by Harper.

    I was trying to find a large image of page 569 of a publication by Mr. Walter Goodwin Davis and found it here at number 64. Thank you.

    William Webster Gunnell wasn’t in Fairfax County, Virginia; rather, he went west.
    Gunnell’s Church met at the home of progenitor William Gunnell (d 1760) at the edge of now Falls Church.

    Bookhouse in Arlington, Virginia has 1500 genealogy books available for use by visitors.
