These pages are a quick reference for collectors and contain the 8730 silversmiths, jewelers, watchmakers, and other related craftsmen included in my larger, single tree genealogical study of

American Silversmiths

Included here is the information and images I have gathered as of 04 June 2024.
I would appreciate any assistance that increases either.

I am pleased to note that the work presented here is now being permanently archived by the Library of Congress
