Old, But Still in Use

I have been working on my Hotchkiss, Lee, Munn, Tilden, and Other Related Families project and am now in the process of going back and adding in the author’s text. I had previously gone through the work and built the lineage into Family Tree Maker to understand what was being said.

In entering the text, I reacted to some of the situations that were called out in the text. Some of the ones were specific – Savage’s Genealogical Dictionary, Vol III, p 75 and another was more generic – History of Guilford.

I looked at my bookshelf and see the four-volume set of A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England by James Savage. OK, so I pulled Vol III and looked on page 75 and found the exact citation mentioned in the text which was written almost 90 years ago.

I also found History of Guilford, Conn. by Hon. Ralph D Smith on another of my shelves and there on page 194 was the item referenced. I will be adding the full quotation into my finished version.

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.
