American Families

Although new evidence enables some traditional American families to be connected to English families, family numbers have been maintained in accordance with Family Tables of Racehorses as far as possible. For example, Family A4 probably connects to Family 21, so Family A4 is shown as connecting to Family 21 for those who wish to pursue the dam line.

Most sources, like Family Tables of Racehorses, rely on the American Stud Book in which pedigrees were reconstructed from available data. While stud book compilers like Bruce and Edgar did an amazing amount of work and deserve endless credit, they didn't have access to all the information. In the early part of the twentieth century Fairfax Harrison hired an army of researchers to sift through old magazines and newspapers and from these he discovered new information, often presented in stallion advertisements, that recorded the pedigrees of early horses. Based on this information he suggested a number of corrections. These corrections are included in the family tables.

American families a40 to a80 have been recently classified for research purposes according to the number of descendants reaching into the twentieth century. You are welcome to use these numbers if you wish. The tables are presently under construction.
