Western Massachusetts Families in 1790: 4 new sketches

Map of Massachusetts showing Dalton (red) in Berkshire County (pink) and Belchertown (dark purple) in Hampshire County (light purple), adapted from maps by Justin H. Petrosek.

Today we’re announcing four new sketches in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, featuring heads of families from Dalton and Belchertown.

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.

The new volumes are listed below:

Benjamin Chamberlin (Dalton)

Benjamin Chamberlin, 2nd (Dalton)

Eliphalet Chamberlin (Dalton)

Orlando Root (Belchertown)
