William Dollarhide is best known as the co-author and cartographer of Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, a book of 393 census year maps, and one of the bestselling titles ever published in the field of genealogy. Mr. Dollarhide currently lives in Utah. He has written numerous guidebooks related to genealogical research.

With this series of genealogical guides, William Dollarhide continues his long tradition of writing books that family historians find useful in their day-to-day United States research. Bill’s Name List guides give a state-by-state listing of what name lists are available, where to find them, and how they can be used to further one’s research.

Name lists are key to success in any genealogical endeavor. Name lists, be they national, state, county, or even city or town in scope, can help nail down the precise place where one’s ancestor may have lived. And if that can be done, further records, usually found on a local level, will now be accessible to research. But success depends on knowing where the ancestor resided. This is where Dollarhide’s Name List guides can make the difference.

Not only does this volume give a detailed bibliography of Name Lists available for the state, but links to websites, FHL book & microfilm numbers, archive references, maps, and key historical information make this volume invaluable to the researcher looking to extend their lines and fill in the family tree.

I recommend it to any genealogist, beginner or advanced, that had ancestors in the state. – Leland K. Meitzler, Editor – GenealogyBlog.com, Publisher – Family Roots Publishing Co., LLC

This book is also available in a PDF eBook format only.

    A while back, Family Roots Publishing was able to obtain a limited number of an extremely valuable set of three large hardcover books titled Massachusetts and Maine Families – in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis. I was familiar with the set, and when I heard they were about to go out-of-print, and by buying them all I could get a good price – that’s exactly what I did. The set is important, in that a huge percentage of Americans will find their ancestors within these volumes. Do you have New England Roots? If so, you just may find them here.

    The subtitle of the book – “in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis,” throws people off in that they immediately see this as meaning that the book does not apply to their family. Wrong… The genealogies found in these volumes deals with the ancestry of a huge percentage of Americans – and these ancestors could very well be yours!

    Following is a review written by Andy Pomeroy. We have added a compiled surname index that covers all three volumes following the review. Be sure and click on the Read the rest of this entry link to see the full index covering 5045 surnames!

    A Review of Massachusetts and Maine Families – in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis

    I couldn’t tell you why, but lately I keep coming across books worthy of serious attention but have titles that would make most think these treasure in disguise are not for them. Massachusetts and Maine Families: In the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis is just such a book. The title would have been just fine without all that “in the ancestry of” stuff. Why? Well, “almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry—and probably 100 million contemporary Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears—will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the 180 families herein.”

    Massachusetts and Maine Families is a reprint, into three volumes, of an original seventeen volume twentieth-century genealogy. The work was created by Walter Goodwin Davis as a compendium of his ancestry, plus the inclusion of Thomas Haley of Winter Harbor and His Descendents. There are 2,300 pages, plus an index. In all, there are 180 families covered, plus 19 English families in the “immediate ancestry of American immigrants.” Most of the families lived in Massachusetts, 114, with 29 in Maine and 18 in New Hampshire.

    The introduction to the 1996 reprint was written by Gary Boyd Roberts, who now retired was then working as the Director of Special Research Projects at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Roberts writes glowingly about Davis’ life long dedication to genealogy and his contributions to the practice. Boyd refers to Davis as “the third pillar of two triads of genealogists that revolutionized both local (i.e. northern New England) antiquarian studies and national genealogical standards overall.”

    The original 17 volume set covered Davis’ sixteen great-great-grandparents, plus the inclusion of Thomas Haley of Winter Harbor and His Descendents. This reprint consolidates these seventeen volume into three, indexes the whole set, and  rearranges the contents into alphabetical order. The sixteen g-g-grandparents for whom Davis focused each original volume where:

    • Nicholas Davis, 1753-1832, of Limington, Maine
    • Charity Haley, 1755-1800, wife of Nicholas Davis
    • Joseph Waterhouse, 1754-1837, of Standish, Maine
    • Lydia Harmon, 1755-1836, wife of Joseph Waterhouse
    • Joseph Neal, 1769-c. 1835, of Litchfield, Maine
    • Sarah Johnson, 1755-1824, wife of Joseph Neal
    • Annis Spear, 1755-1858, of Litchfield, Maine
    • Sarah Hildreth, 1773-1857, wife of Annis Spear
    • Dudley Wildes, 1759-1820, of Topsfield, Massachusetts
    • Bethia Harris, 1748-1833, wife of Dudley Wildes
    • Abel Lunt, 1769-1806, of Newbury, Massachusetts
    • Phoebe Tilton, 1775-1847, wife of Abel Lunt
    • James Patten, 1747?-1817, of Arundel (Kennebunkport), Maine
    • Sarah Stone, wife of James Patten
    • Lieut. Amos Towne, 1737-1793, of Arundel (Kennebunkport), Maine
    • Sarah Miller, 1755-1840, wife of Lieut. Amos Towne

    Each volume has an index for that individual book; though, the book itself is arranged by surname of each ancestor. There are pedigrees charts for each of the 16 g-g-grandparents on the first few pages. This will help the reader identify where each individual actually falls in the family with one quick glance. Volume I covers the surnames Allanson to French. Volume II covers Gardner to Moses, and the third Neal to Wright.

    Massachusetts and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis

    cf1400dI couldn’t tell you why, but lately I keep coming across books worthy of serious attention but have titles that would make most think these treasure in disguise are not for them. Massachusetts and Maine Families: In the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis is just such a book. The title would have been just fine without all that “in the ancestry of” stuff. Why? Well, “almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry—and probably 100 million contemporary Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears—will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the 180 families herein.”

    Massachusetts and Maine Families is a reprint, into three volumes, of an original seventeen volume twentieth-century genealogy. The work was created by Walter Goodwin Davis as a compendium of his ancestry, plus the inclusion of Thomas Haley of Winter Harbor and His Descendents. There are 2,300 pages, plus an index. In all, there are 180 families covered, plus 19 English families in the “immediate ancestry of American immigrants.” Most of the families lived in Massachusetts, 114, with 29 in Maine and 18 in New Hampshire.

    The introduction to the 1996 reprint was written by Gary Boyd Roberts, who now retired was then working as the Director of Special Research Projects at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Roberts writes glowingly about Davis’ life long dedication to genealogy and his contributions to the practice. Boyd refers to Davis as “the third pillar of two triads of genealogists that revolutionized both local (i.e. northern New England) antiquarian studies and national genealogical standards overall.”

    The original 17 volume set covered Davis’ sixteen great-great-grandparents, plus the inclusion of Thomas Haley of Winter Harbor and His Descendents. This reprint consolidates these seventeen volume into three, indexes the whole set, and  rearranges the contents into alphabetical order. The sixteen g-g-grandparents for whom Davis focused each original volume where:

    • Nicholas Davis, 1753-1832, of Limington, Maine
    • Charity Haley, 1755-1800, wife of Nicholas Davis
    • Joseph Waterhouse, 1754-1837, of Standish, Maine
    • Lydia Harmon, 1755-1836, wife of Joseph Waterhouse
    • Joseph Neal, 1769-c. 1835, of Litchfield, Maine
    • Sarah Johnson, 1755-1824, wife of Joseph Neal
    • Annis Spear, 1755-1858, of Litchfield, Maine
    • Sarah Hildreth, 1773-1857, wife of Annis Spear
    • Dudley Wildes, 1759-1820, of Topsfield, Massachusetts
    • Bethia Harris, 1748-1833, wife of Dudley Wildes
    • Abel Lunt, 1769-1806, of Newbury, Massachusetts
    • Phoebe Tilton, 1775-1847, wife of Abel Lunt
    • James Patten, 1747?-1817, of Arundel (Kennebunkport), Maine
    • Sarah Stone, wife of James Patten
    • Lieut. Amos Towne, 1737-1793, of Arundel (Kennebunkport), Maine
    • Sarah Miller, 1755-1840, wife of Lieut. Amos Towne

    Each volume has an index for that individual book; though, the book itself is arranged by surname of each ancestor. There are pedigrees charts for each of the 16 g-g-grandparents on the first few pages. This will help the reader identify where each individual actually falls in the family with one quick glance. Volume I covers the surnames Allanson to French. Volume II covers Gardner to Moses, and the third Neal to Wright.

    Copies of the three volume set of Massachusetts and Maine Families: In the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis are available from Family Roots Publishing – now at 50% off the original MSRP!

    Maine Probate Court Documents Going Online

    The following teaser is from an excellent article written by Judy Harrison for the December 26, 2013 edition of the Bangor Daily News.
    Susan Almy, registrar of probate for Penobscot County talks about the current filing system Oct. 30 at the Penobscot County court building. The Probate Court in Penobscot County is one of three in the state that is part of a pilot project to create an electronic case filing system in state courts.  Photo by Brian Feulner / Bangor Daily News

    When Dana Hanley was elected probate judge in Oxford County 17 years ago, the registrar and clerks were using typewriters to fill out standard forms and to prepare orders for him to sign. Under Hanley’s leadership and in consultation with and cooperation from all 16 counties, the probate courts are the first in Maine to move into the 21st century.

    Slowly but surely since 2006, the courts responsible for dealing with estates, adoptions, conservatorships, adult and minor guardianships and name changes have been working toward going paperless, Susan Almy, registrar of probate for Penobscot County, said recently.

    Eventually, nearly all probate court documents will be available on www.maineprobate.net

    True Stories of New England Captives Carried to Canada During the Old French and Indian Wars

    hbb0420In a day and age where selecting the perfect title for a book, a movie, or even a magazine article is often more a marketing question than a practical one, it is nice to find books whose titles declare exactly what the contents are. Of course, when I do find such a title it is often the reprint of a book originally published 100 plus years ago. So it is with True Stories of New England Captives Carried to Canada During the Old French and Indian Wars.

    New England Captives was written by C. Alice Baker, and originally published in 1897. In her preface, Baker mentions reading the words “Carried captive to Canada whence they came not back.” These words peeked Baker’s curiosity. What happened to those captives? Curiosity turned to mission and this book is the result of C. Alice Baker’s efforts.

    These pages provides detailed accounts of attacks on the following towns:

    • Well and York, Maine
    • Dover, New Hampshire
    • Hatfield, Haverhill, and Deerfield, Massachusetts

    These stories focus on the points of view of just a few individuals, but offer extensive genealogical and biographical data. In particular, the following family names are treated:

    • Baker
    • Nims
    • Otis
    • Plaisted
    • Rishworth
    • Rising
    • Sayward
    • Sheldon
    • Silver
    • Stockwell
    • Stebbins
    • Wheelwright
