Published: March 2017
Paperback, 564 pp.
Building on the second volume of Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 that was published in 2016, this third volume contains another seventy-five highly detailed genealogical sketches of heads of households along with lists of their children living in what are now Berkshire, Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties. Sketches are contributed by NEHGS members and skillfully edited and indexed by expert genealogist, Helen Schatvet Ullmann, CG, FASG.
This volume includes entries for the following surnames:
Arnold Barnard Bartlett Berry Birge Bradley Brooks Brown Burch Chamberlin Coss [Corse] Cowles Crafts Dalrymple Davis Donderson Edson Ferry Fowler Fuller Gardner Gibbs Hall Herrick Ingell Joyner Kendall Lilly Lewis [Luce] Lyon Martin Mayhew Needham Newell Norton Payne Peirce Pepper Phillips Porter Powell Presho Safford Shumway Smith Snow Stockwell Taylor Thayer Trask Wells West White Williams Wise WordenYale
“Each [sketch] is like a mini journal article, featuring, in Register form, a good mix of original and derivative sources. What especially makes these sketches valuable, however, is that many of the families . . . have not already been investigated and presented in print.”
