The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Volume 53, 1899
Heritage Books, Nov 25, 2015 - History - 522 pages
This quarterly journal, commonly called simply "The Register," is certainly the oldest, and arguably the best, genealogical periodical published in the United States. Within its volumes researchers will find some of the most valuable genealogical compilations and source record transcriptions to be found anywhere. It is difficult, one might even say foolhardy, to attempt to do research on New England families without reference to this important series. However, copies of the original editions of these volumes are becoming increasingly difficult to find, so Heritage Books has reprinted the early volumes of this important serial in order to make them more accessible to the rank and file genealogist. Each volume has an index, and in addition, a comprehensive index to the first fifty volumes is also available. In the description below it is only possible to touch on some of the main articles-each volume also contains much additional material. Genealogies: Elwell; Noyes; Yale; Hoar; March; Adams; Axtell; Parmelee; Gaylord; Barker; Fowler; Stone; White. Biographical sketches: Hon. William A. Richardson; Henry Thayer Drowne; Hon. John Cummings; Capt. Edmond Blood; John Fuller of Ipswich, Massachusetts.; President Edwards; Dr. John F. Pratt; Leonard Thompson; John Oulton; Lt. John Skinner. Family Records: Lee; Brewster; Saltonstall; Gurdon; Sedley; Knyvet; Robinson; Gage; Bushnell; Blynman; Gaylord; Goddard; Frost; Barrett. Other records: Deaths at Edgartown, Massachusetts; South Hampton New Hampsuire. Church records: Inscriptions at Great Barrington, Massachusetts and more. (1899, 1998), 2015, 51/2x81/2, paper index, 540 pp
