New England Historical and Genealogical Register - Summer 2021 Issue

 I downloaded my digital copy of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register (Volume 175, number 3, Summer 2021. Whole Number 699) today after receiving an email from NEHGS.

Here is the Table of Contents:

The Contents include:

page 195: Editorial

page 197: The First Generations of John Mills of Braintree, Massachusetts, and His Descendants, by Helen Schatvet Ullmann

page 207: William1 Woodbury of Salem and Beverly, Massachusetts, by David C. Dearborn and John Bradley Arthaud

page 223 The English Ancestry of Thomas1 Bell and His Sister Sarah (Bell) Meakins, Wife of Thomas2 Meakins of Roxbury, Massachusetts, by Clifford L. Stott

page 231: Notes on the Family of William1  Gager of Little Waldingfield, Suffolk, and Charlestown and Boston, Massachusetts, by Robert Battle

page 238: Rev. Joseph Gerrish’s Wenham, Massachusetts, Congregation: 1710 Communicants, by Nancy K. Stevens

page 241: The Second Wife of Moses Gile of Hampstead, New Hampshire: Which Mary Clark?, by Derek Doran Wood (concluded from 175:166)

page 247: The Colman and Cutler Ancestry of John1 Thorndike of Essex County, Massachusetts, with the Colman Ancestry of John1 Coggeshall, Muriel1 (Gurdon) Saltonstall, and Jemima1 (Waldegrave) Pelham, by Robert Battle (concluded from 175:192)

page 269: New England Articles in Genealogical Journals in 2019

page 283 Reviews of Books

The only article that has one of my ancestral families this quarter is the Colman and Cutler Ancestry article, which extends the English ancestry of my ancestor, John Cutler (1600-1637) whose family settled in Hingham, Massachusetts in the late 1630s.  

I have subscribed to the Register since about 1994, and have found numerous articles about my New England ancestral families over the entire 175 years of the Register.  American Ancestors has digitized, and indexed, all of the issues and they are available on the American Ancestors website for subscribers.  

I usually download the useful pages with my ancestral families and save them in my Surname and/or family folders on my computer.

Great nudge for checking on my more respectable ancestors, Randy. I joined NEHGS for their seminars, which are very good. They also have free talks on historic architecture and decorative arts. A great help for those of us stuck on the West Coast tracking ancestors in the South and New England. Some seminars include 1:1 time with their staff genealogists; they also have free online question times.
