The Essex Genealogist, Volume 26, 2006


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. Each volume contains articles related to Essex County or to genealogical research in general. Recurring highlights of the journals include the “TEG Feature Article,” “Queries,” “Research in Progress,” “The Ahnentafel” (family generational charts), and “Moments in History.” The Society has created a new full name index for each volume. Just a few of the many articles in this volume include: “Tales from the Courthouse,” “Researching Your Ancestors on the Internet,” “Writing in Register Style: Concise, Precise, and Flexible,” “Researching Newfoundland Ancestors;” Research in Progress: “David and Dolly Nichols and Their Descendants,” “The Pattee Farm and Ferry,” “Charter Street Cemetery Inscriptions,” “Descendants of Godfrey Sheldon;” Tools of the Trade: “Abbreviations for Queries;” and Moments in History: “Uses and Abuses of Mercury in Diseases of Children.” Other family names featured in this volume include: Alexander, Goldsmith, Kimball, Lancaster, Paine, Swift, Tarbox, and Vining. Charming illustrations and maps augment the text.
