Three RIGGS volumes electronically published

I have just placed online for download three volumes of my RIGGS family researches, fully sourced. These are 3 of 5 volumes I have created on this family.

Vol. 1 is in print (only). The family of BETHUEL RIGGS, first five generations. Not online.
Vol. 2 is in electronic form (only). The family of BETHUEL RIGGS, next five generations.
Vol. 3 is not yet published.
Vol. 4 is in electronic form (only). The family of Isaac and Mary Riggs of Northern KY.
Vol. 5 is in electronic form (only). The family of Thomas Riggs of Gloucester MA.

The electronic versions look like books but act like webpages. That is, they are highly hyperlinked for easy traversal.

Each volume is from 500-900 pages long, fully indexed, fully hyperlinked, fully sourced, 1000s of Riggses.

These are the Riggses either descended from Edward Riggs of Roxbury MA or descended from the same ancestor as he.

These are (except for vol. 1) not complete. Whenever I am in doubt about a proof, it is in red. Electronic publishing allows me to make corrections in future while still letting the public have access to all the proven records. This represents about five years of labor.

Go to the homepage of Alvy Ray Smith and click on the image of the Bethuel Riggs volume (it says Jacobus Prize across it). Follow the links to the various volumes.

Hope you enjoy this, Riggs researchers!
