Abbreviation: The American Genealogist
Title: The American Genealogist
Author: Daniel Lines Jacobus
Publication: New Haven, CT; Joel Munsell's Sons; 1922-Present
Note: The American Genealogist was founded in July 1922 by Donald Lines Jacobus as the New Haven Genealogical Magazine. The first eight volumes consist primarily of the editor's compendium, Families of Ancient New Haven. When that project was completed, the journal became, with the July 1932 issue (the first number of the ninth volume), The American Genealogist and New Haven Genealogical Magazine and was dedicated to the elevation of genealogical scholarship, through carefully documented analyses of genealogical problems and through short compiled genealogies. In 1937 the subtitle was dropped, and the journal became simply The American Genealogist, usually abbreviated as TAG. After forty-three years as Editor and Publisher, Donald Lines Jacobus was succeeded in January 1966 by Dr. George E. McCracken (1904-1986) of Des Moines, Iowa, who continued the high standards set by TAG's founder. With the April 1983 issue, Dr. McCracken was succeeded by Robert Moody Sherman (1914-1984) and Ruth Wilder Sherman (1929-1992) of Warwick, Rhode Island. Dr. David L. Greene of Demorest, Georgia, joined Mrs. Sherman in editing TAG, beginning with the April 1984 number, and Robert Charles Anderson of Derry, New Hampshire, became Coeditor with Dr. Greene in 1993. In 1999 Joseph C. Anderson II of Dallas, Texas, joined David Greene and Robert Anderson. The American Genealogist is published four times a year. Editions 1-4 edited by William H. Whitmore, 5th edition prepared by the publishers

This source ties John Briggs to the children, Joanna, Richard, William and Hugh. Samuel belongs to another father (see source added to Briggs-1528), and likely thomas does as well: NEHGR 125:80.
