NEHG Register July 2007 Table of Contents

The July 2007 issue (Volume 161, No. 3, Whole Number 643) of The New England Historical and Genealogical Register arrived last week, chock full of New England research articles.

The Table of Contents includes:


* Editorial -- p. 163
* "The English Origins of Edward Jenkins of Scituate, Massachusetts," by Allis Ferguson Edelman and Daniel G. Jenkins -- page 165
* "The Children of Ward Swift (1735-1821) of Sandwich, Massachusetts," by Ellen J. O'Flaherty -- page 167
* "Marriage by Elihu Marvin, J.P., of Hebron, Connecticut, 1785-1812," by Linda MacLachlan -- page 175
* Jemima Preston, wife of John Younglove of Killingly, Connecticut," by Helga Andrews -- page 181
* "Ancestry of Bennet Eliot of Nazeing, Essex, Father of Seven Great Migration Immigrants to Massachusetts," by William Wyman Fiske (continued from 161:91) -- page 186
* Genealogy of Samuel Peirce, First Settler of Zoar, Massachusetts," by Jon Wardlow (concluded from 1612:137) -- page 199
* "Genealogist John Farmer Discovers His Ancestry: The Warwickshire Family of Edward Farmer, Isabel (Farmer) (Wyman) (Blood) Green, and Thomas Pollard, of Billerica, Massachusetts," by Nathaniel Lane Taylor (continued from 161:155) -- page 209
* "New England Articles in Genealogical Journals in 2005," by Henry B. Hoff -- page 223


For some reason, I find very few recent items or articles useful to my research from the Register. Many people have researched most of my New England families, and there have been many helpful articles in earlier volumes of the Register. What is left, for me to research, are the "brick walls" - the women with no known surname, the folks with a common surname in a place with several families of that name and poor extant records, the men that "pop up" in a place without clues of where they've been previously, etc.

As I've noted before, I'm posting these Tables of Contents so that other researchers, who might Google a name of their ancestor, can find out where they might look next in their search. If every periodical or magazine would post their Tables of Contents online, that would help many researchers.
