The Essex Genealogist, Volume 2, 1982


This series collects the quarterly journals of the Essex Society of Genealogists into convenient yearly volumes. Essex County, Massachusetts, is a region of genealogical interest to many people across the country, and the Society’s journal has been an important source of information for its subscribers since it was founded in 1981. Recurring highlights of the journals include the “TEG Feature Article,” “It Happened in Essex County” (local history), “Crest and Shield” (heraldry information), “Tools of the Trade” (advice on genealogical resources), “The Ahnentafel” (family generational charts), “Research in Progress,” “Ask TEG,” “Society News,” “Genealogical Queries,” and original poetry. While there is enough general information and advice included to make this book valuable for anyone interested in genealogy, those with genealogical interest specific to Essex County, Massachusetts, could not hope for a better resource. The Society has created a new, full-name index for each volume. A few of the articles within this volume include: Feature Articles: “Inhabitants of the Saugus Iron Works,” “Urban Research,” “Lynn’s Free Burying Ground,” and “Between Two World Wars;” Crest and Shield: Dodge, Dudley, Eaton, Emerson, Fletcher, Foster, French, Frost, Gould, Greene, Hart, Hutchinson, Hill, and Ingalls; Research in Progress: Doliber/Dolliver, Randall, Elizabeth Phippen, and John Smith of Barnstable. Other family names featured in this volume: Rantoul, Storey, Wilson, Coddington, Putnam, and Tilley.
