This is the basic genealogical dictionary of early New England settlers, giving the name of every settler who arrived in New England before 1692 regardless of their station, rank, or fortune. Alphabetically arranged for each it gives the dates of his marriage and death, dates of birth, marriage and death of his children, and birthdates and names of the grandchildren. According to the author, "nineteen twentieths of the people of these New England colonies in 1775 were descendants of those found here in 1692, and probably seven-eighths of them were offspring of the settlers before 1642."

Owners of this series will also want to purchase the new Female Index to "Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England," which indexes all the females scattered throughout Savage's four volumes by both maiden and married names.

"Probably the greatest work on genealogy ever compiled for the New England area."--P.W. Filby, American & British Genealogy & Heraldry

These volumes are also available on our Family Archive CD 7169.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"There is little doubt that this is probably the greatest work on genealogy ever compiled for the New England area...Essential for those with genealogy and history collections."--AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL (1982).

"We welcome the reprint of this old friend...Comment as to the usefulness of Savage's work is unnecessary. It is a classic."--NATIONAL GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY QUARTERLY, Vol. 65, No. 4.

"In the field of genealogical research certain standard reference works have come to be regarded as foundation blocks. James Savages's monumental four-volume Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, for example,...is a work which must be literally at the elbow of every student of genealogy."--OLD-TIME NEW ENGLAND, Vol. LVII, No. 3.

"...it is one of the best reference works on genealogy, particularly for those tracing New England ancestry. It is also useful for historians and biographers, and should therefore be in most reference collections."--LIBRARY JOURNAL.
