I am interested in working with people who own (or can get) a copy of "Reliques of the Rives (Rives) by James Rives Childs, published around 1929. It is available for a high price on Amazon - I will provide a link. If anyone knows where to read this for free please let me know.
Goal would be to post all profiles of people in the book to geni, starting just with factual tree information, then with selected excerpts for color. I am not suggesting that "Reliques" will be the ultimate source for master profiles for these people, but Reliques should be a good source to start with, and will help to connect a good number of people in the U.S. with the surname Rives / Reeves / Ryves.
