While reserching my surname genealogy a year ago, I discovered a book for sale, "More About The Riggs Family 1590-1973 / Duggan", at www.bookgarden.com
. After purchasing and reading, I had found that it did'nt help in my immediate reserch but what I did find was the knowledge and dedication it takes to put your work into a book form. I have since purchased and am reading four other reprinted Riggs books from www.higginsonbooks.com
. "Genealogy Of The Riggs Family Vol.1 / Wallace / 1901"; "The Riggs Family Of Maryland / John Beverley Riggs / 1939"; "Our Pioneer Ancestors Of Riggs And Allied Families / Henry Earle Riggs / 1942"; "Some Descendants Of Isaac And Mary Riggs / Rich / 1976". At the presant time I've "hit the wall" in Ontario / Steuben Cnty. NY 1818 with James L. L. Riggs, and am not sure where my quest will lead me, but those books are proudly displayed. When ever I look at them I can't help but think we are all cousins that can be proud of the Riggs heritage in America. What other name draws such an intrest? Would'nt it be fun to have a National Riggs Reunion? Rent downtown Chicago, or Woodstock NY?
