CD: History of Ipswich, Essex and Hamilton, Massachusetts

CD: History of Ipswich, Essex and Hamilton, Massachusetts - Joseph B. Felt. The towns of Ipswich, Essex, and Hamilton, Massachusetts, are depicted from their inception. This history discusses the towns' physical characteristics and resources as well as the development of commerce, industry, and educational systems, and the creation of organizations and institutions such as libraries, post offices, alms houses, societies, and the local bank. A great deal of genealogical information is included: births, marriages, and deaths, several obituaries, biographical sketches of town figures, and a list of the first settlers of Ipswich. Religion was important to the residents and much space is dedicated to a description of the area's churches, ministers, and ecclesiastical concerns. This book offers a fascinating glimpse of the day-to-day lives of early New England residents. New full name index. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book.
