New Englanders in the 1600s: A Guide to Genealogical Research Published Between 1980 and 2010 (Expanded Edition)
Author: Martin E. Hollick
Published: April 2012
This expanded edition of the bestselling New Englanders in the 1600s offers researchers an even more comprehensive source for finding the most recent genealogical writing about seventeenth-century New England families. The new edition includes a full five years’ worth of publications, plus select publications from 2011. Hollick has also added all of MASSOGmagazine from 1980–2010; the three final volumes of the Great Migration: Immigrants to New England 1634–1635; the final volume ofJohn Howland of the Mayflower; and eight other new works.
All levels of researchers, from beginners to professionals, will find this book helpful for finding articles, single- and multi-family genealogies, and other scholarly compendia covering New England immigrants born before the year 1700.
Entries are alphabetized by surname; each entry contains enough information for you to locate the research that has been done on that particular person, and also indicates which publications mention other family members, ties to royalty, full-family genealogies, and/or DNA studies. This new edition includes listings for over 3,600 families.
With so much new and important genealogical research buried in the leading journals and in all-my-ancestor compilations, one of our greatest needs is an up-to-date finding aid providing easy access to this literature. Hollick’s updated volume fills the need admirably.
