Abstract: The McCallment Personal Papers is a compilation of the author's personal family history research. Items include correspondence from Paul Hans Anderson (dated 1968-1994), notated copies from the author's original source materials, a travel journal with snapshots from various graveyards, marriage, census and deed notes. Prominent surnames within the collection include Huff, Vandemark, Alderman, Seay, Leavens, Anderson and Beatty. According to the research contained in this material, the families hailed originally from Germany and Norway before migrating to Rhode Island and New York State. The author's notes evidence that the families later split, some migrating north to Canada, while others journeyed west to various parts of the central United States and eventually to Washington and Oregon.
