The Taylor Family Books By Ardis Taylor
My friend, Ardis Taylor has kindly given me permission to scan and post the TAYLOR series of books she wrote during the time period of 1980 through 2012 on this website. Please note the following:
1. None of the books are still in print. Please do not phone or write the author, Ardis Taylor, as she has no books available and is unable to reply to queries about the books or their contents.
2. All of these books are copyrighted. You may download a book in part or in it’s entirety and use it for your personal research purposes but you may not: (a) alter any of the text, (b) post online to message boards, ancestry pedigree pages, etc. (c) sell or market the data.
3. I am sorry, but I just don’t have the time to do “lookups” so please do not ask as I will not reply! Also, I am sorry and don’t mean to be rude but, please do not send me questions, comments, or arguments about the contents of the books. I will not reply.
4. About information accuracy ….. The author, Ardis Taylor, writes that she knows there were some errors in the earlier books and she attempts to correct or clarify them in the later books. REMEMBER, these books/excerpts are secondary sources as they were not created at the time of the events.
5. I personally would caution you about relying on the information concerning the ancestors of William Taylor Sr., especially about George Taylor of Carlisle being our Immigrant Ancestor and his g-grandson, Francis Taylor III, being the father of William Taylor Sr. as I believe that recent y-DNA analysis identifies this information as being “questionable” if not completely in error! I will post more about this soon.
