I am very pleased to say that I am selling my book on the Shoemakers, Averys, Browns, Duarts and Packards, etc. It’s great to see what a little advertising will do for sales. I may even have to have a second run of the book. Thank you.
This week I met with the Executive Director Emeritus, Dr. Ralph Crandall, from the New England Historic Genealogical Society of Boston and they were glad to get a copy of this book as well as the Harrisburg Chapter, NSDAR book ” Revolutionary War Patriots’ Historic Houses of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania”. This was compiled by our Historic Preservation Committee of the Harrisburg Chapter.
Dr. Crandall is interested in family records or books from anywhere, that you would be willing to donate. They are branching out to cover more than just the New England States, as many of the settlers moved south and west from Boston.
If you would like to have a wonderful week of genealogical research, “Coming Home to New England” is a great time. I went last August and can’t wait to return. I advanced my family to the Mayflower on two lines and connected with Princess Diana, with the help of resident expert Gary Boyd Roberts. Gary is an incredible scholar, author and NEHGS treasure who took my family lines back many generations, all from his abundant knowledge of New England genealogy.
All that research was great, but it still didn’t confirm what I went to find, the parents of Ebenezer Avery and Joel Packard. If you are reading this and are researching either of these lines, HELP!
