Today we’ve added new sketches to both Early New England Families, 1641-1700 and Western Massachusetts Families in 1790

Alicia Crane Williams’ Early New England Families, 1641-1700 highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700. We’ve added two new sketches to this database, Richard Norcross (m. 1650, 1673) and William Shattuck (m. 1643). Both of these men lived in Watertown–Richard Norcross married William Shattuck’s widow, Susanna.

We’ve added one sketch to Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, which focuses on individual enumerated in the 1790 census in historic Berkshire and Hampshire counties, also including modern Franklin and Hampden counties. Helen Schatvet Ullmann, CG, FASG is the editor of this project. The new sketch features Noble Baggs (Belchertown).

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help adding these sketches to our database.
