Researching the JONES surname can be a problem for many genealogist. Having references which deal with this surname can be a real help. The following pictures show the cover of such a help called "JONES JOURNEYS".
It was started May 1973 by Mrs. Darla M. Jones, of Rialto, California. Volume 1, No. 1 begins with "Jones Deaths of Mercer Co., Ky. 1852 - 1858" p.4, and ends with Volume 19, Summer, 1991. Lots and lots of JONES family information in between!
Finding this reference can also be difficult. A complete set can be found in The Joseph Wheeler Jones Memorial Library, Danville, Ky. Anyone know additional locations please post.
Picture above is of volume 2, May 1974. The cover of volume 1 was in very poor shape.
The publication changed cover and appearance over time. The final issues were printed by Van Volumes, Ltd., P.O. Box 567, 400 High St., Thorndike, MA 01079. Anyone know if this group still exists?
