CD: The Browder Connection

CD: The Browder Connection - Helen Sides Dye. Now available on CD-ROM! First published in book form in 1995, this major work was six years in the making and is intended to give a comprehensive history of the Browder family. Edmund Browder, a tobacco farmer in colonial Virginia, came to America sometime before 1693. The author believes this progenitor was of Irish descent (O'Broder, O'Broudair, etc.) but probably lived in England before coming to America. Some Browder lines are followed for ten or more generations. Information generally covers the subject's name and vital statistics, spouse's name and parentage, children's names, residences and occupations. Other families who will find connections to the Browders include: Bolling, Bowman, Byrd, Cleveland, Clift, Crump, Cunningham, Cate, Dickey, Eldridge, Erwin, Gilliam, Grisham, Heiskell, John/Johns, Lovelace, Pickel, Privett, Sides, Smith and Winton. Special features of the book include all Civil War vouchers with Browder names form VA, TN, AL, KY, TX, MS, LA, NC and SC, and twelve original letters form 1863-1870 which are published in their entirety for the first time. The books are presented as graphic images, so the user sees the works just as they were originally published. They are intended to look and function very much like "real" books, i.e., the user looks for entries of interest in the table of contents or index, and then turns to the page cited and scans it for the desired information. Numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to navigate through the books and indexes, and to jump from one book to another. 1999, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 440 pp. 101-CD1260 ISBN: 0788412604
