This periodical is published quarterly by the Essex (MA) Society of Genealogists (ESOG), and concentrates on records and families of Essex County, Massachusetts.

The feature article, transcribed from the 16 September 2006 presentation by Laura Prescott to ESOG. Her lecture was intriguing because it touched on resources that many of us, myself included, don't really consider when we are researching family history. Laura's examples were excellent. She really made the point to me that "you never know what a repository holds until you research there."

I also found that I am a distant cousin of both people who submitted the Ahnentafels, since I have a significant number of Essex County ancestors in Lynn, Marblehead, Ipswich, Salisbury, Amesbury and Newbury back in colonial times.
