Today we’re announcing one new sketch in Western Massachusetts Families in 1790.  The new sketch focuses on Nathaniel Abell of Goshen.

This study project focuses on individual 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.

We’ve also updated Timothy Bush of Norwich‘s sketch in Early Vermont Settlers, 1700-1784.

Scott Andrew Bartley’s study project tracks heads of families who lived in Vermont prior to the Revolutionary War.
