King Egbert Sources and References

Sources and References

When I started working on the Egbert Family History, there were many parts of the family with legends that they were descended from King Egbert of England. So, being a curious person, I started studying the king and his family. There were only brief mentions of him in books, none that I found were focused on him. That was when I decided to put together whatever I learned about King Egbert.  During this research there were several computer crashes, and a few hurricanes, besides the usual distracting situations that life throws my way. As a result there was some loss of source information needed for this list. There were other websites, books, periodicals, journals, and dissertations studied, and other graphics found. While it may not all be listed here, it was all a benefit to this study. To all the contributors,  thank you.
