The ARDA staff consulted more than a hundred different sources when constructing the family trees, but the primary source was J. Gordon Melton’s Encyclopedia of American Religions, Ninth Edition (Gale Cengage Learning). We thank Dr. George Hayward for his leadership and dedication in assembling the final database used to construct the trees.
