Welcome to today's webinar on using NEHGS resources to help you find your seventeenth-century New England ancestors. My name is Ginevra Morse, Online Education Coordinator at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I'll be moderating today's event. NEHGS is a nonprofit organization supported by our members and donors. We provide resources and expertise on nearly all aspects of family history, and are pleased to offer this webinar today for our members and friends around the world. And, just as a quick note of clarification on today's topic, when we say seventeenth-century we do mean the year 1601 to 1700. And when we say New England, we're referring to the area that's presently made up of Connecticut, Maine Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Giving today's presentation will be David Dearborn, Senior Genealogist at NEHGS. He's been a genealogist at the Society for nearly 40 years and is an expert on early New England, especially the northern states, New York, England, Scotland and more. David will actually be retiring next month so you're very lucky you could join us today and benefit from his years of experience. David will give a quick overview of settlement and migration patterns within New England. Then he'll highlight some of the resources and records available at NEHGS. While many of these resources are accessible as databases on American Ancestors dot org, David won't go into too much detail on how to search each one as that has been covered in previous webinars and you can watch those at American Ancestors dot org slash watch. At any time during this presentation, please feel free to write a question in the panel to the right of your screen. David will answer as many of those as he can in the last 15 to 20 minutes of the hour. As a reminder, this event is being recorded and the video will be posted to our website in the next couple of days. So without further ado, let's get started. David take it away. Welcome everyone, thank you Ginevra, and welcome everyone It's very good to have you all here this afternoon. What I would like to do in this hour is to highlight some of the most popular and reliable sources for researching your seventeenth-century New England ancestors. The New England Historic Genealogical Society since 1845 has been at the forefront of collecting and preserving records of historical and genealogical interest. Seventeenth century New Englanders are probably one of the most studied group of people that you would find anywhere. It's a fairly small self-contained area and those people who arrived during the so-called Great Migration Period, that is from about 1620 to 1640, which is when the majority of seventeenth-century New Englanders arrived, were basically arriving in a genealogical vacuum, except for the Native Americans with whom there is very little interaction in terms of marriage and so forth. They were arriving here basically on a clean slate. Before you really get started into the sources I think it's important to understand the settlement and migration patterns because these can help you in your genealogical research to understand the context of who your people were during the seventeenth century. I know that many of you are not from the New England area originally and you may be unfamiliar with the geography of the area. New England of course is in the northeastern corner of the United States. If you look at the map here, you'll see that the area of New England now consists of Massachusetts and Connecticut, Rhode Island down in the southern part and, in the northern part, just above western Massachusetts, what is now the state of Vermont, but does not really fit into what we have to say today because it hadn't been settled yet by New Englanders and then, to the northeast, we have the present state of New Hampshire and, further east, the state of Maine. It's important to understand that Massachusetts has always figured very largely in New England not only because of its central position geographically, but because of its population. It's far and away, and has been since day one, the largest of the New England colonies. It probably would be hard to find any one of you with New England ancestors in the seventeenth century who do not have ancestors living in Massachusetts. Number two in terms of population would be Connecticut, then Rhode Island. New Hampshire and Maine were much smaller. Northern New England in general, even though it's a bigger area, is a much smaller area in terms of population. You'll see that throughout this map which shows most of the major towns that were settled by 1700, that there are very few north of Massachusetts. Most of the settlements regardless tend to be along the coast which is what we would expect. There were also settlements going up and down the Connecticut River Valley and, to a lesser extent, up into the Merrimack Valley as well. If you look at the map, down at the very bottom, you'll see Long Island which even though Long Island technically is not part of New England, it was genealogically because the eastern three quarters of Long Island was settled by people from mostly Massachusetts Bay who went down there in the 1640s and 1650s and, from there, some of them went on to settle places like Newark, New Jersey, Piscataway, Cape May and other places and all this was prior to 1700. What is now Maine was actually part of Massachusetts until 1800 which isn't really going to affect record-keeping very much because the basic type of record that many of you'll be looking for, that is town records, will still be in the towns of Maine regardless. Even today, county records will still be in the county. There will only be records of a colony-wide basis since the state of Maine did not yet exist. Records would be in Boston. What's now Massachusetts was divided into two colonies: Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Plymouth Colony prior to 1686 taking up the southeastern part of Massachusetts. The two colonies merged at that time amicably and have been the same ever since. There are some surviving records for the Plymouth Colony. Rhode Island and Connecticut also were two different colonies prior to a certain date. It's useful to know and understand all of that as you are getting into your research - just where people were from. The diagram that you see here illustrates the approximate rate of migration as it was year by year between 1620 and 1640, the period of the Great Migration. 1620 of course signals the arrival of the Mayflower and 1640 is the period when political changes going on in England, that is the changes in Parliament with the takeover of Parliament by the Puritan faction which is in opposition to the King. The subsequent outbreak a few years later of the English Civil War meant that those people who are living in England who might have thought of immigrating realized that things were happening and so the immigration pretty much stopped. You'll see that, even though the period of this Great Migration covers approximately twenty years, the vast majority of our ancestors actually arrived in this great bubble of 1633 to 1640. This reflects the period when Archbishop Laud became the Archbishop of Canterbury who was great persecutor of Puritans causing many of them to emigrate. You'll also see the spike in 1630 which coincides with the arrival of the Winthrop Fleet in Boston. This is a full decade after the arrival the Mayflower. You can see looking at the earlier years that relatively few people were actually living in New England prior to about 1629 or so. Settlements were very, very tiny and really kind of just scraped along for that 10 year period. It's really the 1630s when one most our ancestors actually arrived. This is a book that I would suggest that you look at if you're interested in knowing more about how the unfolding of settlements in New England took place, how it was populated. This book, "The Expansion of New England", was written in 1909 by L. K. Mathews. It was reprinted a year or two ago by NEHGS and even though the book is now over a century old, it still is, to my mind, a wonderful piece of scholarship. It has very, very many specific examples of specific towns in New England, who the settlers were, what towns they came from previously, the migration routes that they took and so forth. The book is illustrated with a series of maps showing the areas of settlement as they were in New England at different times. Over on the right you can see two different maps: one showing the area of settlement as of 1675, and the other at about 1812. You can see from the 1675 map how, as I said earlier, the area of settlement was pretty much confined to southern New England with this little strip going up the Connecticut River Valley, more or less hugging the coast with just a rather tiny little strip of settlement right along the northern coast going up a little bit on Casco Bay and that was it. 1675 was significant because that was the year of King Philip's War, and after that time, by 1677, the area of settlement was drastically reduced. Pretty much all of the area where the arrow is pointing to along the coast of New Hampshire and Maine was basically abandoned and people kind of pulled their horns in and we find settlement was pretty much down in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. That situation went on for maybe about another 30 years or so until the population had grown significantly and people felt really strong and safe enough so the push to expand geographically took over again. In the second map you can see that by 1812, the area of settlement had taken up pretty much all of the southern part of New England with really only the northern part of the state of Maine remaining unsettled as it is for the most part even today. If you're going to be looking at New England, it's a matter not only of knowing what to do, but where to go. The "Genealogist's Handbook for New England Research" which the Society has published now in several editions is a book that I refer to just about constantly, not only as I'm going about New England doing research on my own family, but in answering questions of patrons in the library. This book is pretty much up to date and contains chapters for each state with how-to information for the different counties and towns and states, contact information, addresses, hours, websites and so forth. It's gone through so many editions because, of course, this information is constantly changing and we're updating it all of the time. So it's really where to go if you want to get your feet wet in New England research or are planning a trip here just to understand what records exist and where they are. For each New England state, we're also given a list of towns in that particular state. The columns are given to an alphabetical list of the towns including their dates of incorporation, when they were founded, what county the town is in, whether those towns were created out of some parent town or towns, whether other towns split off from them, and any other particular notes. For example, whether the town might have been created earlier or incorporated but not actually settled until later or earlier. And then way over on the right whether there are vital records easily available in some form for that town, whether they've been microfilmed (denoted by an "M"), whether they've been published, whether they constitute a website on American Ancestors dot org, and the same thing for church records. And this exists for all six of the different New England states. The book also has over 80 maps which are very handy for showing both the county and the town boundaries. Here we see Washington County in the State of Maine and you can see that there are certain areas marked in bold that are actual incorporated towns. Those areas that are lightly shaded indicate unincorporated areas. It's useful not only for knowing what the towns are but where they're located and what the neighboring towns might possibly be. To learn more about New England towns, you can go to American Ancestors dot org slash town hyphen guides to get a full list of information on New England towns with additional references and links to various sites on American Ancestors where you can learn more information. It will give similar information as to what you'll find in the "Genealogist's Handbook for New England Research". Finding Aids: I want to now get into kind of the nitty-gritty of how to actually look up your ancestors. If you're looking for somebody in the seventeenth century - where do you start? The first source that I would suggest looking at would be Clarence Torrey's "New England Marriages Prior to 1700". This is a monumental work that contains references to approximately 38,000 couples who either were married in England or in the old country who arrived as married couples here by the year 1700 or who were married here. It includes not only instances where we actually have the marriage record of the couple and know the full identities of both the husband and the wife but also cases where we may not know the wife's maiden name. We may not know her identity or the exact date of the marriage. Yet there may still be information on that couple that might be useful. Mr. Torrey was simply a private genealogist. He was not employed by NEHGS but he used the library as a patron and in the nineteen thirties, forties, and fifties he went from one end to the library to the other examining every single book that he could put his hands on. And not only monographic books on various families but also genealogical periodicals such as the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, the American Genealogist and other journals, also town histories and local historical, genealogical and antiquarian journals. Anytime he found a reference to a couple who met his criteria: that is, married by 1700 or approximately, he would include a reference to that source next to that couple's name. The society published this guide back in 2011 and it also has been available in several editions including CD-ROM, and on our website. Here we see a typical citation from Torrey. Here we have Henry Adams and his wife Elizabeth Paine and, next to Henry, we see in parenthesis his dates of birth and death: 1610 and 1676, and the same kind of information for his wife. Following that, we have the date that they were married and then the place where they were married and/or their places of principal residence. Following that, within the curly brackets is where we get into the meat of it, the sources that Mr. Torrey looked at that indicates some reference to this particular couple. Some of these may be redundant to one another. In order to save space, Mr. Torrey abbreviated his sources drastically to fit everything in. So when he refers to something called Bartlett-Jenkins that's some genealogy on the Bartlett and Jenkins family followed by the page number and so forth. If you use Torrey a lot, after a while you will become familiar with what these sources are but you don't really have to worry about that because, as you will see in a moment, we can get to the list of the sources to find out what those are. It's important to remember that Mr. Tory died in 1962 and therefore the genealogical scholarship for the last 50 years or so is not going to be included but it will include all the classical sources up to that time. If you visit American Ancestors dot org, Torrey's marriage index is one of the databases that is offered. If you just click on "Advanced Criteria" and go to the list of databases, you'll see Torrey's marriage index indicated. We can do a search here. I can put in my own last name "Dearborn" and when we click on the "Search" button, we get 10 hits here. And then by clicking on that first one, we get the specific citations, in this case, to someone that I might want to look at: Godfrey Dearborn who was born in 1603 with a question mark indicating that that year is not certain and here we see his first wife, whose name is just blank - we don't know who she was - it just says "Blank Blank" - but it turns out she's the mother of his children and we see that she was living in 1650. That's all that we know. And when it says "in England", that doesn't mean that she was living in England. That's where they were married in 1632 and then they settled in Exeter, New Hampshire. And then following that, as in the example previous, we get different references to where we can go to find out more information about Godfrey Dearborn. And then by clicking down below, it says "read the full introduction to the Torrey Source List". If any of you are interested in learning about Torrey and how he put that together, I would suggest that. But to find the list of the sources, you go down just below that and click where it says "Read the Guide". And that's going to open up a PDF document such as this which will list his abbreviations to the different sources that he used. Mr. Torrey didn't actually put this list together - this is simply a list of the sources he used. He did this manuscript - we don't really know why - whether it was just for his own amusement - but certainly it's monumental and a value to us all, but he often uses rather cryptic abbreviations. We can see over here there are a couple of them here which when we try to figure out what did his abbreviations mean we weren't able to identify them. Obviously there were sources that the library had at one time but that was over fifty years ago, and some of these we have not been able to identify. The great majority of the sources he lists are indeed to published books or journal articles or town or local histories that are readily identified that we have right here in the library. And in fact for many of you living elsewhere, you might be able to find these books either online through Google Books because the books are now out of copyright and have been digitized. You might be able to find them in some other library. After Torrey, the next source that I usually look at to find out about seventeenth-century families is the book "Founders of Early American Families" by Meredith Colket. Meredith Colket was a great genealogist of the 20th century. He published this book in, or I should say there are three different versions of this book that have appeared. Mr. Colket passed away in 1985, just as the second revised edition of this book came out. There was a third edition of it in 2004 done by someone else, but I would say it was a very slight improvement over the 1985 edition. Basically what this book is is an alphabetical list of those known settlers who arrived in what's now the thirteen colonies of the United States prior to 1657, that is, within the first 50 years of settlement after Jamestown, with enough information to identify who these people are. This was done in 1985, so the beauty of this is that it kind of picks up in a way where Mr. Torrey left off, and kind of takes in the next 20 years' worth of scholarship. It does include people from the other colonies outside of New England. You are going to find your early New York Dutch in there, some of your early Virginia planters but, by and large, I would say probably about eighty plus percent of the individuals who were listed in "Founders of Early American Families" are actually New Englanders. But they had to have been here by 1657. But that will include all of the Great Migration individuals. As I said earlier, there were not that many people who arrived in New England post 1640, so for most the families that were here by 1700, their ancestors were already here by 1640. Unless the family was really small, obscure, has never been written up, at least, as of 1985, you could see whether there was a book or article that might talk about them. Since that time, the slack has been taken up by another work called "New Englanders in the 1600s" compiled by Martin Hollick and published by NEHGS. The second expanded edition goes all the way down to 2010. And this basically picks up where Colket left off except Martin was a little more broad in his definition of who he wanted to treat. It wasn't just people who were here by 1657 but all the way down to the year 1700, but only including the last thirty years' worth of scholarship, in other words, anything published between 1980 and 2010. As you can see, many of the references are to journal articles. If we look here at Bernard Capen then, for example, we see a reference to NEHGR, the New England Historical and Genealogical Register. And one of the beauties of this is that many of the sources that are listed in here or, I should say many of the more important sources, tend to be journal articles that you'll be able to find on American Ancestors. You don't have to go hunting around for these regardless of where you live. If you're in an NEHGS member, you can go on to the website American Ancestors dot org and you can actually look up these references. So if you take the Torrey and Colket and Hollick together you really have a very good literature search of what already has been done on New Englanders in the seventeenth century. Now refining that a little further, Robert Charles Anderson has taken it to the next level. NEHGS back in the 1990s and 2000s sponsored his research into re-looking at or re-evaluating what had been done for the Great Migration Period - - looking at these people again and the second generation, their offspring. Between 1995 and about two years ago Mr. Anderson produced a series of ten volumes covering all known immigrants to New England between the years 1620 and 1635. Volumes 1 through 3 covering those who arrived by 1633 A to Z, and then the last seven volumes covering just those who arrived in 1634 or 1635. You can see the great disparity: three volumes for thirteen years, and seven volumes for just two years, which illustrates that great hump that I showed you in that chart earlier of when people actually arrived. The great majority of them arrived in the middle to late 1630s rather than in the 1620s. In each case, he includes a biographical and genealogical sketch. Here we have Edward Rossiter. I chose him as an example because the entire sketch fits very nicely on two opposing pages. We are given for him his basic biographical information - if it is known, where he came from (and in many cases we don't know where the person was from) and then biographical information, further about this individual, and then finally down below we get the begats - born, married, died - and a list of children. For practically every statement listed we get an abbreviated source of where that information is coming from, in this case, MBCR, which refers to the Massachusetts Bay Colony records, which are in print. And of course, in the front of the book, he includes a bibliography or I should say a list of the abbreviations that he uses within this book. Again, many of them are published works. Again those of you with seventeenth-century ancestors, it's such a small group of people, relatively speaking, compared to the eighteenth-century, that many of the sources are already in print. A lot of the time I will get the question "why don't I see my ancestor listed in the Great Migration volumes? According to the genealogy of the X family, my ancestors were supposed to have been here in 1632." Well, maybe the genealogy says that, but where's the evidence? Mr. Anderson looked at this in a very dispassionate way. He looked at the records just as they were and if your ancestor shows up in a record then he included them and, If not, then they simply didn't make the cut. He says there's no evidence showing that the ancestor was here that early. The Great Migrations series, both the "Great Migration Begins", covering 1620-1633, and the next volume, "The Great Migration", continuing to 1634 -1635, are available as databases on American Ancestors dot org. As are the Great Migration newsletter, and ancillary volumes that he published: "The Winthrop Fleet", "The Pilgrim Migrations", and so forth. For those of you who are interested in further information about the Great Migration Study Project or would be interested in signing up for one of the Great Migration tours to England, something I'd love to do myself, you can go to the website GreatMigration dot org. We're continuing with our research at NEHGS into seventeenth century families by instituting the Early New England Families Study Project, which is being undertaken by the eminent genealogist, Alicia Williams. This information is unfolding even as we speak. It's available online only on American Ancestors dot org and only for our members. Just about every week Alicia is rolling out a new sketch of a new early settler and you can find those on the website . To date, she's posted sketches of 34 different immigrants. And you can see from the format that the type of information listed for these individuals is very similar to what you find in what Bob Anderson pioneered in the Great Migration volumes: basic information categorized by types of migration, residences, parentage, birth, baptism if known. In this case, we have John Allen, born about 1610, based on his age as given in his will in the eightieth year of his age. We don't know where he was from, he dies in Swansea, Massachusetts, married; his bride's name was Christian (we don't know who she was), and so forth. Nevertheless, this may be a more complete sketch of John Allen than has appeared anywhere else. So this is something that I would highly recommend that you look at and continue to look at as the new sketches unfold. Whenever you're doing your genealogy in the seventeenth century, because there is so much literature already in print, it's always worthwhile to see what already has been done before you start going around to reinvent the wheel. A lot of it is already there. Here are a couple of books that I recommend that are worth looking at see what might be readily available. All three of these books were recently re-issued in paperback by NEHGS. Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" was originally published in 1900, and he tries to go beyond what Savage's genealogical dictionary did which was published back in the 1850s. Mr. Pope tried to take the next fifty years of scholarship that had been done, encapsulated just for Massachusetts. As I said earlier, because Massachusetts was the largest state or colony in terms of population, just about everybody either lived in or passed through Massachusetts at some time in the seventeenth century. Many, many families did. Pretty much all of us are going to be interested in this. It's a very worthwhile book to look at. Goodwin's "Genealogical Notes" on some of the first settlers of Connecticut and Massachusetts Bay is a lot older, but certainly for what he has to say about the Connecticut people, is certainly worth are looking at as a source. And then finally for those of you with northern New England ancestors, The Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire" really is a must read book. It is certainly the most detailed and comprehensive of the three. It was published in parts by three eminent genealogists between 1928 and 1939. It has been reprinted many times, most recently by NEHGS just a couple years ago. It includes genealogical information in a very, very condensed form. Here's an example of anyone who was in Maine or New Hampshire by 1699 with several generations of their descendants. Here's a typical sketch of my own ancestor, Godfrey Dearborn. You'll see here that each of these sketches is numbered so we see Godfrey is number one, we see Henry here as number two, and you can see after his name they would possibly continue, depending upon how many names there are. And you'll see after Henry's name, the number one in parentheses - that means that he is the son of number one, that is number one, being Godfrey up here. For each individual, we're given a brief, very condensed sketch - where this person's from - in this case, we have his origins, who his parents were. The book is heavily abbreviated so you'll get this GRJ standing for Grand Jury meaning he served on a Grand Jury. And then you'll see references to these lists which are again a way of saving space. These are at the front of the volume. If you're really serious about knowing more about your ancestor, usually in a biographical sense, these lists are very worthwhile. The book is the result of the scholarship of three very, very eminent genealogists. Even though this book is now about ninety years old, it has really not been superseded in any way. If you have any questions about ancestors in the seventeenth or early eighteenth century, in Maine or New Hampshire, this book probably is going to answer them. It's important also not to overlook periodicals. Oftentimes, people don't go through them because of the perceived difficulty of use. Who wants to trudge through umpteen volumes of a journal and maybe not even find what it is you're looking for. However, they are useful because a lot of the best and most scholarly and up-to-date research appears here. The material that appears in journals such as the "New England Historical and Genealogical Register" and its various sister journals such as the "American Genealogist", "New York B&G Record" and so forth - these are all articles that have been written by genealogists such as you and me but that have been vetted by an editor and, therefore, have to meet the highest critical standards. What's nicest is that more and more of these journals are being digitized and placed online American ancestors dot org website at the moment offers more than 25 different periodicals, these being just a few of them. The register of courses is completely online, the New York GNP Record - you can search now from the beginning of 1870 all the way down to 1923, the American Genealogist all the way down to 2007. All you need to do is go on American Ancestors and just go into journals and periodicals. There will be a list of those journals which you then click on and search to see whether an ancestor appears. When you do this you're going to see the actual page from the journal. So here's just an example of what you might find. In this case, something from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, you'll see up there at the top for the year 1853 there's an article on early settlers of the counties of Essex and Old Norfolk Massachusetts with a list there from whatever source it was they were taken from. What kind of records survive from the 17th century? Fortunately our seventeenth-century ancestors were really quite scrupulous record keepers. Obviously not everything survives from that period or really from any period. Records either were not always kept up to 21st century standards, or records have been lost. But here we have a list of the types of typical records that you should look at and be aware that would exist for the 17th century. Obviously Vital Records are probably the principal type of record - records of births, marriages, deaths which, for many instances, exist on the town level from the earliest days. Church Records which can be a great adjunct to Vital Records, remembering that in the seventeenth century, for the most part, it was kind of a one company town. It was basically the Puritan church which later on became the Congregational Church. In most towns in the seventeenth century there was only one church and your ancestors either belonged to that church or at least paid lip service to it, so they show up in those records. Town Records can be useful for listing town officers, records of town meetings, tax rolls, warnings and so forth. Court Records can be particularly useful. In many cases, your ancestors might have given depositions in court, in which they would list their occupation and their age. In many cases you get very interesting and often unflattering biographical vignettes of your ancestor. Maybe he was called into court for drunkenness. This might not actually be the reason why you went into genealogy, but nevertheless it does illustrate that our ancestors were indeed human beings just as we all are. Military Records - I've mentioned of course King Philip's War. Anytime we have a war, of course, this is unfortunate but it's good from a genealogical standpoint unless of course records were destroyed. But in many cases, when there's some sort of military conflict or campaign, it actually creates records, so we're fortunate to have surviving lists of soldiers or people who served in the militia in the colonial wars. Probate Records - wills. In most cases, these records happily survive and are something we should be using. And then finally Notarial Records which will again shed both biographical and, in some cases, genealogical light on our seventeenth-century ancestors. As I said, Massachusetts is kind of the hundred-pound gorilla in New England in terms of its importance and significance for genealogy. Most of our ancestors are going to have lived at some point in Massachusetts. And this book, whose title you can see is "Custody and Condition of the Public Records" is a very, very useful book because it is an official report to the government of Massachusetts in 1889 that goes county by county, town by town, and church by church of what records existed as of 1889. I don't know how many you have gone say to a Town Clerk's office and been told "oh we don't have any records". By referring to this book, you can say "well you did in 1889 - what happened to them?" The book is divided up into several sections, one section has to do with churches and this is sliced and diced two different ways. You can look up what churches existed by town so that we can look, for example, in 1889, in the town of Sharon in Norfolk County, and we can see that there were several different churches that existed in the town. At the earliest, of course, there was the Congregational Church and you can see the Unitarian Church is listed as 1740 also. That's basically the same church - it was split into Congregational and Unitarian factions. There's also a separate section in the book which is arranged by denomination. And over on the right hand side, we get the civil part, the records for different towns. So here we're looking at in the middle of the page - the town of Stoughton and we can see here that in the Town Clerk's custody are volumes of town proceedings, births, marriages and deaths, selectmen and assessor's records and miscellaneous - the number of volumes, the years covered, who exactly in the town has custody of these records, whether they're indexed, their condition, and so forth. So if you go to a town hall and the Town Clerk tries to buffalo you about records, you can say "well, some predecessor of yours apparently lost them or you're not looking hard enough, because these records did exist as recently as 1889." And following the town records, we are given a chronological history of the town from its creation down to the time of this book's publication, in terms of its geographic evolution. To look a little more specifically at the types of records, as I said, Vital Records probably are arguably the single most important type of record that we can look at. Many, but not all, survive for the seventeenth century. Even when they do survive, they're often incomplete, that is not everything was recorded. Oftentimes, this was the fault not of the Town Clerk but of families who either didn't know that they were supposed to record things or simply didn't care so a lot of people fall through the cracks. But fortunately for us, many of the records that survive for the seventeenth century have been transcribed and published. For those from Massachusetts, for example, prior to 1850, 158 towns out of the 351 have been published. These books have all been digitized and the contents are available as a database on American Ancestors dot org. We can see here an example of one other pages. This is from the town of Dedham, where we can see, starting in 1635, the very first record. You can see that this is a transcription showing the records exactly as they were. So you can see here where it says "Mary, Daughter of Jn. & Hana Dwight" born the 25th of the fifth month in the year 1635. So this, of course, is using the old style dating of months where March was the first month, so therefore this child would have been born on the 25th of July in 1635. Maybe you can't find that vital record that you're looking for. So you might want to consider substitute records, remembering that sometimes maybe something wasn't recorded at all, or it was recorded but in another town. My suggestion would be to try such things as gravestones, Church Records, which often act as a substitute for the Vital Records, Probate Records where you might have a will that might name children, Land deeds, where relationships might be stated, Court Records, or any other type of record that might give genealogical relationships, or might simply show that the person existed and was alive on the date the record was created. Another type of record which again people are aware that they exist, but may be afraid to look at them because they just don't feel comfortable or don't understand quite how Probate Records work. Normally, these records are arranged by county, and of course realizing that county boundaries have changed over the centuries. They may not be the same now as they were back in the seventeenth century. If you're looking at wills and Probate Records, you have to remember that if you're dealing with Rhode Island that instead of being kept by county, they are kept by town. In Connecticut, they're kept by probate district, but certainly in Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire, they were kept by county as you're going to find them in most of the United States. Recently, NEHGS posted a database of original probate documents from Essex County, Massachusetts, the area north of Boston. You can see the actual images. Here we see the will of Anthony Morris Jr. of Newbury made in 1678. This particular database covers Probate Records for the year 1638 to 1840. As I said it is on American Ancestors dot org. It includes over 30,000 cases. There were over four hundred thousand individual file papers within the database. So it's just a very, very, very rich database for those of you with ancestors up on the north shore. One of the most common questions that I get regards passenger lists, is "how can I find my ancestor's passenger list?" If you're talking about the seventeenth century, you have to remember that passenger lists were not kept in the same way as they were in the nineteenth century. Many of them simply no longer exist. What does survive is basically already in print. So for those of you that of course who had ancestors who are known to have arrived by 1635, you can simply refer to the Great Migration volumes to see whether it is known that that ancestor's name appears on a passenger list or not. These three books are the books that I recommend that you look at for actual passenger lists. Coldham's "The Complete Book of Emigrants', a four volume set, although the later volumes cover a later period of time after 1700, and cover, in many cases, people who went to other colonies particularly Virginia, the southern colonies, Barbados, and so forth. Hotten's "The Original Lists of Persons of Quality", which the Society recently reprinted. And then finally Charles Eugene Bank's "Planters of the Commonwealth" which is by far the least helpful of the three because he often took the original records and made editorial comments to them that really sort of muddied the waters a bit, whereas Coldham and Hotten tried to adhere much more to the original. You have to remember that there were never any official records kept in the New England colonies about the arrival of ships. It just simply didn't happen. The records that we know about of people coming over mainly come from two sources that have survived from England: the port books that have survived and the licenses to travel overseas. Fortunately, for the year 1635, for the Port of London, we have a very large collection of licenses to travel overseas. That's how we know about so many people who arrived in New England during that year of 1635. Obviously, as we already know, similar numbers of people were arriving in the early years, but the licenses and the port books just simply haven't survived. So all we can say about these people, even if they fall outside of the period of Bob Anderson's Great Migration project, is that they simply pop up by a certain period. Their name suddenly starts appearing in records and we probably will never know exactly what ship the ancestors came on. This goes to a later period of time, all the way down into the early 1700s. We simply have to resign ourselves to knowing what is already known. But having said that, that does not necessarily mean that you cannot find the person's English origins over in the old country. To find out about what we have here in the library whether for any particular family, or any other subject that we might have, you should go to our online catalog. This has everything that we have. The default is to search by keyword. But if you know a particular book that you're looking for, or if you want to search by subject you can do it that way - you just go in and type in "Dearborn family", for example. or Hampton, New Hampshire or whatever it is that you're looking for and you can see whether we have that item. There are other ways the Society can help you as well. You can find a list of resources, videos, and other how-to tips and subject guide in our Online Learning Center. Finally, you can also schedule a consultation with an expert, or you can hire our research team. And remember that both the consultations and the research service can be done remotely. You do not have to visit the Society in person - you can do all of that long distance. Here's a little checklist review of some of the databases that I've mentioned and which of these are available to NEHGS members and which to non-members. And with that, I would like to thank you for your attendance. This has been a great experience for me to be able to reach all of you today and I hope that this has been worthwhile. I will stop and take a few questions. Thank you. Thanks David for that wonderful presentation. A lot of people have already entered questions into the question panel. If you have a question for David on anything that he's covered in this presentation, please feel free to type it into that question panel. Q: So David, we have a question from Linda who asks "are most records from this time period held at the town level?" A: Yes and no. Records are kept on really any level. They're going to be kept on the town level; they're going to be kept on the county level; they're going to be kept on the state's / colony level. You have to understand what the records are. What you always want to do whenever you're searching, regardless of the century, start with the lowest level, that is the town, which all through New England is the basic jurisdiction. Here you can find your Vital Records: your births, marriages and deaths. You're going to find your town records, your town meeting records if your ancestor was elected to a local office, tax rolls, all the property taxes which your ancestors paid, all that was on the local level. At the county level, and this goes at least for Massachusetts, but not necessarily for the other colonies, this is where you're going to find things like your land records, your probate records, and your court records. And finally, at the state or colony level, you're going to find things like military records, petitions, the General Court, which is the colonial legislature and things like that. Thanks David and thanks Linda for that great question. Q: Wayne asks where would you find the Vital Records for Maine towns that were once part of Massachusetts? A: Okay, first of all you can look at the Genealogist's Handbook for New England Research. Look at the chapter on Maine to see whether the records prior to 1892, which tends to be the cut-off date in Maine, whether they're already available in print. If you are talking about seventeenth-century, if there are any Vital Records, they probably already were looked at and are going to be listed in the genealogical dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire. That would basically be my answer. And then I guess the final thing probably would be, for the specific town, you can look on Family Search dot org and look at their catalog under the specific town to see whether they might be microfilmed. NEHGS has microfilms of maybe about half of the towns in Maine. Q: We have a few questions about Notarial Records: what are they and where could they be found? A: Notarial Records - there aren't really very many of them, but when they exist, they're very useful. There were two notaries that were active in Massachusetts in the seventeenth century. Thomas Lechford and William Aspinwall - just remember these two names. Basically, what they did - they were just like a notary public today. If you had some sort of a document that you wanted recorded officially, you would go to a notary and tell or dictate that document and he was a person who would take a deposition and it would be certified. And what's lovely about Lechford and Aspinwall, not only is that their record books survived and have been published, but they were dealing in the period of the 1630s and 1640s, a time where we're talking about people who actually had come over from England and, in a great many cases, the depositions that they were taking down had to do with affairs that the colonists had, basically tying up loose ends in England. It might be that when they came over, they might have been in their 20s, 30s, 40s, relatively young. They may have left elderly parents behind. When they came over, there wasn't just a one-way street. There was still communication back and forth. If you remember all the ships that brought people over to the colonies, what happened to those ships when they went back either empty, I suppose, at least of passengers, or more likely they might be bringing some people back to England, but they probably would bring in cargo of various kinds: lumber, fish, whatever it might be, but they also carried mail and messages, so there was communication back and forth. And it might be that word got back to the colonists here that maybe elderly parents had died and left them a bequest, so they would go to the notary to have documents notarized or recorded that might have to do with that. So there were a great many clues, some of which have not been thoroughly explored, to English origins in the records of the notaries. Q: Jerry asks "what is the scope of the Early New England Family Study Project? What families are being covered and what is the year range for that project?" A: Okay, it's pretty open-ended. It's really anything from where the Great Migration period that Bob Anderson did in 1635 stops and coming forward to about 1700 or so approximately. There was an article in American Ancestors - I can't quite read the date - I think it was about the last year. If you look at the American Ancestors magazine I think in 2012, there was an article in there by Alicia Williams on the Early New England Family Study Project that talks about scope. But I believe it's basically the 17th century. Q: Great - and we have a question from Kathy: "Does the drop off in immigration in 1640 apply to those arriving in Long Island New York?" A: Well it dropped off because of what was going on in England in terms of colonies. Now what was happening in the other colonies, let's say Virginia, I don't know. But if you read and study about the English Civil War, the decade of the 1640s a lot of people in England were Puritans, certainly not the majority, but a great many of them were. They were becoming increasingly radicalized by the suppression of the King. They were being heavily taxed which they thought was for no good reason. Animosity broke out and eventually the Puritan faction took over Parliament and, of course, the King had to go to Parliament to get money to fund his government. Parliament said no, and eventually conflict broke out. Those people who were still in England who were of the Puritan persuasion could see the writing on the wall, that their day was coming. So therefore, there wasn't any reason to leave England, since the main reason for leaving England and coming to New England was gone. And this is why the migration basically dried up, not completely, but about 95 percent. Q: Thanks David. We're almost out of time so I'll just ask one more question. Again thank you everyone for your questions and your feedback throughout the presentation. Anne asks "does your library catalog include diaries, letters, and other personal materials?" A: Yes, absolutely. My suggestion if you're looking for any particular subjects such as that, is go into the catalog and click on the subject tab, and then you can simply type in the word "diaries", "letters", whatever, and see what pops up. Then you can filter from there and oftentimes what you'll do if you get a subject which is really very broad as you'll be given a number of different subjects. For example, it might say "diaries - seventeenth century diaries", "diaries - eighteenth-century diaries" or it might say "diaries - Massachusetts", "diaries - Connecticut", "diaries - Boston", what have you. You can also use the Advanced feature: you'll see a tab way over the right at the top that says "Advanced" and by clicking on that you could do a Boolean search. What you can do in a case like that is you can then put in a field, you can put in a subject - for example, "diaries" and then you can specify that you only want to search unprinted works in the library which you might also have seen elsewhere, but manuscript items. You can narrow down your search to manuscripts. That goes not only for diaries, but if you just want to know for example, what we have on a certain family, rather than looking at all the books, you can see just what manuscript material that we might have. Thanks again everyone for your questions. If we haven't gotten to your question about how to find your seventeenth-century New England ancestor, feel free to contact us at library @ NEHGS dot org. Also, if you have more detailed questions about the specifics of your research, how to locate records or ancestors or how to a break down some of those genealogical brick walls, you may want to consider scheduling either a consultation or hiring our research services team.
