The ALDRICH FAMILY GENEALOGY by Ralph E. & Pearl L. Aldrich Ralph E. (1902-1984) - - Pearl L. (1903 _ 1991)
This genealogy is a 3000+ page unpublished manuscript compiled and typed by Ralph E. and Pearl L. (Marquis) Aldrich: It is not indexed nor are sources cited. It was started by Ralph in 1959 and, with the help and support of Pearl, continued until his death.
The purpose was to gather only correct information as near as humanly possible on those with the surname Aldrich. It is organized into eleven sections, seven containing genealogical information and the other four other information about the name Aldrich. The sections containing genealogical information are one for George and his daughters, one for each of his four sons, one for probable descendants of George, and one for those probably not descended from George.
Each of the sections is arranged alphabetically by given name, i.e., any descendant of son, Joseph, with a given name starting with the letter M or a wife with the given name starting with the letter M are in section B M; if the ancester was Jacob, the section is E M. These individual sections are arranged by generation from George; he being #1 (one), Joseph #2, etc. Wives are listed with their husbands and individually; husbands are only listed with the female Aldrich.
The Historian of The National Aldrich Society has one copy. Other copies have been given to the NEGHS in Boston, MA and to the RI Historical Society in Providence, RI.
