Chronicles of the Scalf Family
Copyright (C) 1970 Henry P. Scalf

The books by Henry P. Scalf and Elmer D. Scalf are the building blocks that most Scalf researchers use for guidance. Those books pointed us in the right direction. As someone so eloquently said, "all Scalf researchers stand on the shoulders of Henry and Elmer Scalf." They did not have the internet or the tools that we enjoy. They and their assistants drove around the country to the many courthouses, interviewed dozens of individuals, and put in hundreds of hours assembling the information they collected.
