Today we’re announcing four new sketches in our database Western Massachusetts Families in 1790

Helen Ullmann’s lastest book has recently come out: Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, Volume 4 . Learn more about the included sketches!

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 this update possible.

The new sketches are listed below:

Daniel Merrill, Pittsfield
Hosea Merrill, Pittsfield
Mary Merrill, Pittsfield
Freeman Sears, Greenwich
