List of Kings from the William King Scrapbook

William King Scrapbook

Page 28 – List of Kings

[We have a project at the Scarborough (Maine) Historical Society (SHS) where we are scanning and digitizing scrapbooks.  Most of the pages are newspaper clippings and other documents which lend themselves to optical character recognition (OCR); however, there are also pages that are handwritten.  To make those pages searchable within the final PDF document, I have been transcribing them as needed.]

Scrapbook, accession number 62.74.4, is a scrapbook of William King which was donated to the SHS in 1962. Its contents are mostly newspaper clippings. The clippings go back to 1905 and the most recent clipping appears to be from 1952. The majority of the clippings are undated. The handwritten pages appear to be mostly genealogical lists of individuals that are ancestors of the King family and are also undated. This list is from Page 28, as identified in the scrapbook index. The original was scanned at 2550 × 3509 and is available at the SHS Museum. The original image was duplicated, cropped, resized for the web to 564 × 508, and is displayed here.
