The Essex Genealogist, Volume 25, 2005


This series collects the quarterly journals of the Essex Society of Genealogists. Recurring highlights of the journals include the "TEG Feature Article," "Research in Progress," "Our Readers Write," "The Ahnentafel" (family generational charts), "Genealogical Queries," and "Moments in History." 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.

Just a few of the many articles in this volume include: TEG Feature Articles: "Seventeenth Century Scottish War Prisoners," "Irish Resources," "Immigrant Research Strategies," "Understanding Early New England Gravestones;" Research in Progress: "Abraham Parker," "I Told You I Was Sick," "Records of the Third Church in Salem, 1817–1820," "David and Dolly (Chase) Nichols and Their Descendants;" Our Readers Write: "Charter Street Cemetery Inscriptions;" The Ahnentafel: "Jonathon Stanwood," "Eunice Hodgkins," "David Burnham," "Elizabeth Marshall," "Nathaniel Lufkin;" Moments in History: "Ordination of the First Missionaries, February 6, 1812 [Salem, Mass.]," "Organization of the Town (Salem)," "Salem, June 12, 1930," "Old Meeting House, Lynnfield, MA, 1714." Charming illustrations, maps and a full name index augment the text.
