I suspect than any Brethren researcher would have a different list... but
let me make some suggestions...--
First of all, it makes a difference your geographical area.-- what path did
your families take, if you know...Generally there are histories of many
states -- except the deep south.. each district of Penna.. Virginia,
Maryland.. Ohio,, Indiana,, Ill.. Settlement of the Brethren on the Pacific
Slope by Muir... etc...One that I use often "Miami Valley Ohio,
Pioneers.. by Lindsay M. Brien... Brethren in the Carolina s --
Sappington.. Allegheny Passage by Bittinger and/or Two Centuries of
Brothersvalley by Cooper are key helpers and catch a lot of families..
2nd... There are many family histories... not all accurate... but some are
very carefully done and good guide.
don't neglect to look for the inlaws.. sometimes their family
history gives good clues to follow...
The Brethren Encyclopia is basic... The Messenger obituary index or the
Vindicator index is full of information...Brumbaghs History of the
Brethren... Durnbaughs Colonial History and the European period of C of B
History.. I'm sitting here surrounded by books --full of Brethren
