These pages are a quick reference for collectors and contain the 8,205 silversmiths, jewelers, watchmakers, and other related craftsmen included in my larger, single tree genealogical study of

Included here is the information and images I have gathered as of 30 July 2017.
I would appreciate any assistance that increases either.

I am pleased to note that the work presented here is now being permanently archived by the Library of Congress
