We publish a 4 volume hard-bound genealogy entitled: John Meader of Piscataqua. It contains details of over 1500 of his descendents.

The “Red Books,” as we call them, began life as the compilations of John Joseph Meader of Providence, RI and Miss Elizabeth Meader Slocum of New Bedford, MA. This original work was expanded on by Alvin A. Meader in 1900, followed by further work and research by Robert F. W. Meader’s 1928 genealogy. The published four volume set was the compilation of Dr. Granville Meader in the early 1970’s.

The Meader genealogy information from the books and supplemental material published by the Meader Family Association in 1975 has been digitized and put into our on-line database on this website.

The Associations four published volumes of the descendants and ancestors of John Meader.
