Prior to 1700, the European population of New England was still sufficiently small and compact enough to be manageable from a genealogical standpoint. In many cases, town vital records, church, colony, court, probate, land, military, and tax records not only have survived, but have been abstracted and published. This Portable Genealogist will direct you to the most relevant and useful resources-including study projects, scholarly resources, and finding aids-for tracing your seventeenth-century New England ancestors.
The four-page laminated guide can fit easily in your research binder.
