Today we’re announcing three new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790. The new sketches feature Perez Cook (Granby), Ichabod Hemenway (Williamsburg) and Heman Hitchcock (Conway).

This study project focuses on individuals enumerated in the 1790 census in historic Berkshire and Hampshire counties, also including modern Franklin and Hampden counties.  Sketches for this project are submitted to editor Helen Schatvet Ullmann, CG, FASG by NEHGS members and other interested researchers.  If you are interested in submitting a sketch for Volume 5, please review our project home page.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making these updates possible.
