Wyman’s work, compiled over thirty years and originally published in 1879, is notable not only as a comprehensive collection of genealogies of early settlers but also as an abstract of real estate records, church records, gravestone inscriptions, and family records, thus giving us a picture of both the people and places in the town. His compilation remains a reliable and highly detailed source for historians of early Charlestown.
