New Englanders in the 1600s

The Guide to Genealogical Research by Martin E Hollick was published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I bought it because I knew I should be able to find a number of my ancestors listed.

P 17 – Botsford, Henry, b1608, of Connecticut. Samuel(3), Elnathan (2)

p 90 – Fuller, Samuel, Mayflower Passenger, b 1580, d Plymouth, Mass., between 9 August and 26 September 1633

p 134 – Jenks, Joseph, B 1599, d Lynn, Mass., March 1683.

Now, the import part of these citations is not the information that they have, but each one supplied a reference to a major Genealogical publication that would help in the research of these ancestors.

I only listed 3, there are lots more — the big thing about New England in the 1600s was that the population was small and there was a lot of intermarriage between the families.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
