Jean Wilcox Hibben, Phd, MA - America:  Land of the Farm, Home of the Plow
Farmers have been the backbone of America from the first settlers until the present day. Without these important people, and their families, there would not be food to eat . . . yet genealogists frequently use the phrase, “My ancestors were JUST farmers.” Just farmers? Then they were the necessary part of the population so everyone else could survive! Learn some about the farming occupation along with how to locate records of these important people; understand the vital role of your farmer forefather (and foremother . . . and all the forechildren!).
