While a complete Harris family genealogy cannot be presented here, a guide to the myriad of names and the attendant relationships is necessary. The following list has been compiled in order to aid the researcher in the identification of relatives who correspond with Richard T. Harris and his family and of those whose photographs are in the collection. These notes do not identify any other individuals in the papers.
