Researching 17th Century Settlers To New England
The 17th-century colonists in New England are one of the most studied groups on the planet. Prior to 1700, the European population of the area was still sufficiently small and compact enough to be manageable from a genealogical standpoint. In many cases, town vital records, church, colony, court, probate, land, military, and tax records not only have survived, but have been abstracted and published. Through this online seminar, you will learn how to make real headway in your early New England research by using go-to published sources, original records, and targeted research strategies, while gaining valuable historical context to understand your ancestors’ lives and motivations.
This online seminar includes access to 5+ hours of pre-recorded presentations by renowned speakers, authors, and professional genealogists; a live q&a session with the instructors; special offers and virtual “door prizes"; and access to handouts, slides, and other resources until October 31, 2021.
