What's In a Cady?
One of the biggest requests I get in e-mail (aside from jumping off a cliff) is whether I am or know a certain Cady. Though it's definitely a worthwhile pursuit, finding Cadys can be tricky business, so I've amassed a few resources here.
A much more tasteful page than mine, Conrad Cady's Cady page is a great source of information.
Conrad has also started a Yahoo Club on Cadys.
To talk to folks, see the Cady Family Genealogy Forum.
There is also a Cady Resource page at RootsWeb which includes an e-mail mailing ist.
Jim Cady published a 400-page Cady Genealogy in 1991and a 200-page supplement in 1995. I have both, and they're very well done. He still has a few copies of the '91 edition ($53) and the supplement ($41), and you can call (903-791-6290), send him e-mail (JCady4100@aol.com), or mail a check to the following address:
An older Cady Genealogy, published in 1910 by Orrin Peer Allen, is now being reprinted by Higginson Books.
