Books

Books, including published genealogies, for Wakefield researchers.

A Frisian Family: The Banta Genealogy

  • Descendents of Epke Jacobse, who came from Friesland, Netherlands, to New Amsterdam, February, 1689. By Theodore M. Banta, New York, 1893.
  • In Craig Township in Switzerland County, Indiana during the 1800s, the Wakefield and Banta families first met and laid the foundation for many marriages between the families. This book is an invaluable resource to both Wakefield and Banta family historians and a book that I have found extremely beneficial to my research. An original book can be found in the Switzerland County Library in Vevay, IN.
  • Note: On page 300 is Jacob J. Wakefield and Susannah Jane Banta.
  • The South Fork of Waken-Fields

  • A book that many Wakefield researchers may have overlooked due to the name. By chance I came across the book in the LDS’s library in Salt Lake City but I am happy I did.
  • Great reference material for the southern branch of the Wakefields.
  • The Wakefield Memorial

  • By Homer Wakefield
  • Published in 1897
  • Focus of material is on the Northern Wakefields who descend from the Massachusetts line. The Southern Wakefield are underrepresented and the information is indeed incomplete.
  • Only 500 copies were printed and I am fortunate enough to have 2 copies.
