Herman Webster Mudgett was responsible for the deaths of as many as 200 people. Most of them were murdered during the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, which was held in Chicago. Mudgett confessed to 27 of these killings. So far as I know there has not been a published account of Herman Mudgett's ancestry. The man who became Dr. Henry Horton Holmes came to Chicago from New England. His family migrated from England in the 17th century to Massachusetts, and then to New Hampshire. The book is not of the true crime genre although it has some description of the crimes committed by Mudgett, and his punishment for them. It is interesting to look into the past concerning an individual who became a sociopath. Unlike Charles Manson, who I have published an e-book about, Mudgett's forebears did not have a criminal among his parents. Neither were his brothers and sisters antisocial personalities. Readers will profit from the e-book in a number of ways. Some will be related to persons who have the same surnames as Mudgett's relatives. Others will enjoy the book entirely for the information and photographs Hopefully, the book will inspire many readers to carry out research on their own families. --Provided by publisher
