How do I fit in? I have been adding to my Rootsweb worldconnect tree from time to time trying to add all the Hord family members I find in one big monster family tree. You may want to browse that tree to see how we might be related or just to see what I might have found about your branch of the tree. My WorldConnect Tree

If you are new to the genealogy business/hobby and are interested in the Hord family, you will want a copy of this sometimes difficult to find book. The Genealogy of the Hord Family by Rev. Arnold Hord as well as the supplement to that book that Rev. Hord published in the early 20th century. Books on Demand is one source that currently carries the first book. Higginson Books carried it at one time. There are some other rare or out-of-print book sites that carry the books and those are provided here as well. If anybody can tell me where else it might be found, I would appreciate it very much. If anybody has a copy that I could scan in and post at this website, that would be even better (I believe it is public domain, if not, let me know that too). My ultimate goal would be to format it in a manner that will make it hyper-linked so that the numbered names will take one back to the origin of that individual and have additional links that go to family webpages with further information. My efforts so far to publish the books on the Hord family genealogy are listed below. Books On Demand
