Title: <b>Maine and Massachusetts Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis </b>Walter Goodwin Davis, <i>Maine and Massachusetts Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis </i>(Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1996) Family Tree Maker CD #194 Three volume set: I. Allanson to French, II. Gardner to Moses, and III. Neal to Wright. The multi-ancestor compendia compiled and published by Walter Goodwin Davis is one of the major achievements of twentieth-century genealogy. These volumes authoritatively cover 180 families, all of Davis's colonial forebears plus nineteen English families in the immediate ancestry of American immigrants. The Davis opus is undoubtedly the premier work for northern New England, and an often essential companion volume to the celebrated Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, which it considerably expands, especially for many Essex County families with ties further north. Almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry--and as many as 100 million living Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears--will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the families herein.

Title: <b>Pioneers of Massachusetts </b>Charles Henry Pope, <i>Pioneers of Massachusetts </i>1900 (Republished Bowie, MD: Heritage Books, 1991) This descriptive list of pioneers of Massachusetts was taken from colonial, town, church and other contemporary documents. It lists over 5000 persons who settled the colony and were instrumental in its growth. Including settlers from as far back as the Mayflower, researchers will find birth, occupation, marriage and death information along with a list of known descendants. For those seeking ancestors from the colonies of Massachusetts and Plymouth, this can be a helpful source of information. The total number of ,'Pioneers" on record is about 6,000. Of these the occupations of only 1,725 were mentioned; 323 being called tillers of the soil, (including both wealthy landholders and humble plowmen,) 210 house and ship carpenters, 115 tailors, 103 merchants, 91 ministers, 81 shoemakerS, 75 sea-captains, 62 weavers, and so on. We have further some 471 cases in which the records specify the settlers.

Title: <b>The ESSEX ANTIQUARIAN </b>Edited by Sidney Perley and George Francis Dow, The Essex Antiquarian The Essex Antiquarian was published from 1897 to 1909 by Sidney Perley and George Francis Dow, both noted Essex County Genealogists and Historians. The purpose and accomplishments of the Antiquarian are best described in the words of Perley and Dow, as published in the final edition Vol. 13, No. 4, October 1909: "The Essex Antiquarian was purposed to fill a want. It was designed to be a leader in scientific historical research; and to present copies or abstracts of records and compilations in an exhaustive and systematic manner, so that as far as the publication extended further investigation along those lines would be needless. Repeated examinations of records tend to their destruction, and thousands of dollars have been spent locally upon the same records for the same purpose by various persons who were ignorant of costly examinations made by others. This purpose, if prosecuted, would preserve the records and make further expenditure of money and labor unnecessary. This has been the particular reason of the appearance of the genealogies in alphabetical order, the gravestone inscriptions, abstracts of the Salem and Ipswich quarterly court records and files, old Norfolk county records, all wills in the order of their probate, Essex Gazette notes, abstracts of titles to land, etc., as shown in Salem, Haverhill, Ipswich and Marblehead in 1700, and in Georgetown and Topsfield in 1800. During the thirteen years of its existence there have been published in The Essex Antiquarian genealogies of all families from Abbe to Brown; all gravestone inscriptions dated prior to the year 1800 in Amesbury, Andover, Beverly, Boxford, Bradford, Danvers, Essex, Georgetown, Gloucester, Groveland, Hamilton, Haverhill and Ipswich; all wills proved in the county prior to June, 1666; the record of the Essex County Revolutionary soldiers and sailors alphabetically to Brown; abstracts of the old Norfolk records to 1675; Salem and Ipswich quarterly court records and files to 1659; and abstracts of all records in the first ten volumes of the Suffolk county registry of deeds relating to Essex county persons and property, where parties resided or property was located in Essex county, covering the period prior to 1678."

Title: <b>The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown </b>Thomas Bellows Wyman, <i>The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown -- in the County of Middlesex and Commonwealth of Massachusetts 1629-1818,</i> 2 vols. (Boston, MA: D. Clapp and Son, 1879 (reprinted by the New England History Press, 1982]) “A little over a hundred years have passed since the first publication of Thomas Bellows Wyman's The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown in 1879. Its broad scope, the thoroughness of its scholarship and the meticulousness of its detail have made it an indispensable tool for the student of history, and the genealogist alike. It has continuously enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best and most accurate books of its type. Charlestown is particularly fortunate in that almost all of its early records have survived, despite the burning of the town by the British in 1775. What makes The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown superior to most other works of its kind is that the author utilized not only obvious sources of information-town and church records-but other types of documents as well, particularly the deeds, and probate and court files of Middlesex County. For over thirty years Wyman collected material from many sources relating to Charlestown's inhabitants from its earliest settlement to 1818, carefully sifting them for their genealogical value. Correlating the facts from these sources and weighing the evidence in his typically impartial manner, he produced a book whose accuracy has stood up to a century of scrutiny. The result is a monumental genealogical compendium of all families and individuals for nearly the first two centuries of the town's existence. As one of the older settlements in New England, Charlestown is genealogically one of the most significant. Many well established families trace their beginnings to Charlestown. From this base people settled all over New England and beyond, and today thousands of Americans can trace lines of ancestry back to its early families. Thus, the book's importance reaches well beyond Charlestown's borders. In addition to being a "parent" town, Charlestown was a major seaport, attracting a constant stream of merchants, mariners and seamen, some of whom intermarried with the local populace and added to the blend of surnames. The most remarkable feature of the book is Wyman's complete lack of discrimination between the distinguished and less distinguished town residents. Most town histories written before or since typically devote most of their space to prominent individuals or families or those of long-standing residence while only mentioning briefly -- or omitting entirely -- the lesser lights. Wyman's method allowed for no such distinction. He was fond of saying that the persons and families eminent in social station or political preferment were sure of recognition in a thousand ways not open to their less fortunate neighbors, and that his aim had been to gather the scattered memorials of the many, rather than to write panegyrics on the few. The book's plan is straightforward, and the alphabetical arrangement of the genealogies does away with the need for a name index. For the larger families an index for the heads of each individual family group is provided at the beginning of the family sketch. Each sketch is divided into two parts: the genealogies and the estates. It is this latter section in which the author makes his most valuable contribution. By making these records readily available, the need to seek out the often inaccessible or deteriorating originals, is eliminated. Besides the genealogies and estates, several other features contribute to the book's usefulness. Among these arc the chronological schedule of conveyances to 1818, a schedule of the ancient colored inhabitants on record prior to 1800, and an 1818 map of the town.
