Today we’re announcing three new sketches for two of our New England study projects: Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 and Early New England Families, 1641-1700.

Two new sketches were added to our database Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, highlighting Enoch Weller of Pittsfield and Samuel Hurlbut of Westhampton.

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’ve also updated Early New England Families, 1641-1700adding one new sketch featuring Samuel Stratton (m. 1624, 1657) of Watertown.

Early New England Families, 1641-1700 is written by Alicia Crane Williams. This study project highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700. Be sure to read Alicia’s most recent Vita Brevis post about this project, “Clustering” Salem.

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