Wampanoag Families of Martha's Vineyard: The Wampanoag Genealogical History of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts [2 volumes]


Nineteenth-century New England genealogists largely ignored Native Americans, who, despite centuries in the area, had been marginalized and forgotten. This “missing” history inspired the authors to compile comprehensive genealogies of the Martha’s Vineyard Wampanoag families. Volume II, a massive two-volume set, is a definitive work on these families. All sources, which include deeds, probates, vital records, court records, maritime records, legislative records, missionary records, and many other manuscripts, are cited; also included are an addenda, bibliography, and indexes of persons and ships.

Richard Andrew Pierce and Dr. Jerome D. Segel
