The New England Historical and Genealogical Register - Volume 173, Winter 2019

I am a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) and now receive The Record publication via email.  When I get an email from them, I download the journal in PDF format to my hard drive and read it, looking for articles that may include my ancestral families.

The current issue is for Winter 2019:

92 Reviews of Books

The only connection I found to my ancestry is the Overton article - Olive (Welby) Farwell is my 9th great-grandmother.

I hoped that I would be related to Elizabeth Barker, but I did not see a known ancestor in that article.


Disclosure:  I am a paid subscriber to the New England historic Genealogical Society, and have been since about 1992.  I have not received any financial considerations from the Society to my knowledge.
