The Link Family, Antecedents and Descendants of John Jacob Link, 1417-1951


This work is a treasure trove of Link history and genealogy. The history section opens with a discussion of the early history of the Link family, followed by an examination of why the family patriarch John Jacob Link left Germany and migrated to America, and his arrival in America. This section includes individual chapters devoted to over a dozen significant Links, including “Ida and Her Sons—the Eisenhowers.” The bulk of the text is devoted to a detailed Link genealogy, spanning eight generations. Facsimile reprints of original documents, portraits, maps, appendices, a bibliography, and a full-name index enrich this work.
