We have added seven new sketches to Western Massachusetts Families in 1790. This database focuses on families listed in the 1790 census in historic Berkshire and Hampshire counties, an area which includes parts of modern Franklin and Hampden counties as well.  Sketches are submitted by NEHGS researchers and members and edited by Helen Schatvet Ullmann, CG, FASG.  The following sketches comprise this update:

Joseph French (Sandisfield)

Richard Morton (New Salem)

Denison Robinson (Windsor)

Thomas Robinson (Windsor)

Daniel Sherman (Adams)

Peter Tower (Cummington)

Samuel Wells (Greenfield)

Please note:  This database is available to Individual-level and above NEHGS members only. Consider membership .
