Author: Samuel G. Drake; foreword by Henry B. Hoff
Published: December 2012
First published in the Register in 1860, this volume, much like Hotten’s The Original Lists of Persons of Quality , compiles passenger lists and other documents from the British Archives relevant to early migration to New England.Although some of the contained transcriptions may overlap with Hotten's work, it is important to review this volume for additional information and research avenues, and to compare and/or confirm how a name appears.An influential figure in the early years of NEHGS and editor of the Register off and on between 1847 and 1861, Drake and his works continue to be a go-to source for researchers of early New England. Includes comprehensive indexes by passenger, person, place, and ship.
