Outten Genealogy Sources

The John Perry Outten Collection. By far the most extensive source of Outten information I have found is the body of work written by Rev. John Perry Outten. Rev. Outten wrote a series of short biographic sketches on early Outtens.

In addition to Rev. Outten’s work, the list below represents the primary sources that I have used for my research. I have also been helped by close to 100 people who have shared their family histories with me.
