The Rollins Family in the New Hampshire Provincial Deeds, 1655-1771, Alden M. Rollins

2 The Rollins Family in the New Hampshire Provincial Deeds, 1655-1771
Alden M. Rollins
1997, 5˝x8˝, paper, indices, 204 pp, Heritage Books
This new research guide is sure to earn a place among the invaluable resources on the bookshelves of genealogists and other researchers interested in the early settlers of New Hampshire. John Rodman Rollins' 1874 book, Records of Families of the Name Rawlins or Rollins in the United States, still stands as a benchmark despite its numerous errors and omissions. With these thoroughly researched and meticulously documented abstracts, however, Alden M. Rollins has provided a much needed companion to the 1874 work. Mr. Rollins strongly believes that deed records are still an under-utilized source of information for genealogists, and he has well supported his claim with the thoroughness of this collection. From the 100 volumes of the New Hampshire Provincial Deeds, Mr. Rollins has examined every recorded document for references to the Rollins family name. If a Rollins was mentioned in any capacityówhether buyer, seller, witness, relative, neighbor, spouse, etc.óthe author has abstracted and partly transcribed the deed. The deeds usually contain such information as hometowns and occupations of seller and buyer, purchase price, a description of the property, signature or mark of the seller, names of witnesses and the date of transaction. The deeds are cited by volume and page number, and the Rollins names appear in boldface. Mr. Rollins has included an elaborate and very helpful introduction, which explains in extensive detail the history, structure and variety of the deeds. He has also provided examples of how the deeds can be used to follow a family line, to confirm information from other sources, and to enhance understanding of the social and economic context of the period. In a few deeds, Mr. Rollins has added a note to explain a connection to a Rollins in the 1874 John Rodman Rollins book. There are three indices. The first allows the researcher to find all references to Rollins family members by indexing their Christian names. The second is an everyname index of all other individuals. The last indices the landmarks cited in the deeds.

Colonel Prentiss Ingraham
(1893), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 354 pp, Heritage Books
Alexander Majors was a man of action rather than words, yet his memoirs are a history of the Wild West and, although many of the scenes are romantic and thrilling, he presents a factual picture of the times and the men who made history with him. His recollection of his seventy years upon the frontier shows a life lived in a period of time "that tried men's souls to the fullest extent…when daring deeds and thrilling adventures were of every-day occurrence." He faced all dangers and obstacles while establishing a successful line of freighter wagons, a mail route from the Atlantic to the Pacific and the Pony Express.

8 The Indigenous Roots of a Mexican-American Family
Donna S. Morales and John P. Schmal
(2003), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, indices, 206 pp, Heritage Books
In their second collaboration together, the authors begin their narration by taking the reader back thousands of years to reveal the complex and fascinating history of Mexico's Indian tribes, and conclude with the story of nine generations of the Indian-Mexican-American Morales family. Prior to the arrival of the Spaniards, an incredible diversity of aboriginal peoples lived in the area we now know as Mexico. After the conquest of the Aztecs, the greatest challenge to continued Spanish domination in Mexico lay in the northern lands of Zacatecas and Jalisco. It was here that the Chichimeca Indians waged half a century of guerilla warfare against the invading Spaniards. In the second half of the book, the ordinary lives and activities of nine generations of the Morales family are followed through three centuries as they evolve from Indian warriors to Indian peasants and, eventually, to citizens of the Mexican Republic. Then, in 1912, as the Mexican Revolution raged, the Morales family sought refuge in the United States and made its home in Kansas City. This history follows the evolution of one family through a series of cultural, spiritual, linguistic, genetic, religious, professional, and personal transformations.

Georgia Willis Read
(1927), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 244 pp, Heritage Books
This volume is a record of a journey overland from Independence, Missouri, to Hangtown (Placerville), California, in the spring of 1850, with a letter from the Diggings in October of the same year and an account of a journey from New York to California, via Panama, in 1862, capture by the Confederate raider, Alabama, and a visit to the Nevada silver mining district in 1863. The author's father was well suited to keep a "dispassionate appraisal of the journey. Trained by his profession to be keenly observant, and born of a family accustomed, from early Colonial days, to serve its country and to bear in mind an ideal of the common weal, he laid aside his practice of medicine to become the captain of a company to cross the plains." His penciled entries in a worn sheepskin notebook tell the story of a great endeavor and a great achievement. An extensive bibliography gives the researcher a great source for further study of the westward expansion, the frontier and the gold rush.

Some Descendants of Rev. Leonard Metcalf of Tatterford Parish, Norfolk, England, Howard H. Metcalfe

19 Some Descendants of Rev. Leonard Metcalf of Tatterford Parish, Norfolk, England
Howard H. Metcalfe
2003, 8˝x11, cloth, index, 768 pp, Heritage Books
This work compiles a record of some of Rev. Leonard Metcalf’s descendants, mainly those of his son Michael Metcalf, who emigrated from England to Dedham, Massachusetts, in 1637. The compilation includes some 11,700 of those descendants. (The Rev. Leonard probably has at least 800,000 descendants alive today in the United States alone.) Encompassing nine generations, the period covered extends to the beginning of the 20th century. Equal attention has been paid to progeny of female descendants. As a result, five out of six descendants recorded in this book in the seventh generation, those of age around the time of the Revolution, do not carry the surname Metcalf. The most frequent (more than 100) descendant surnames appearing in this volume are Carpenter, Metcalf, Sweet, Walker, Ware, Webster and Wheeler. The preface includes several illustrations: a map of Massachusetts and its neighboring counties; a map of the migration over 200 years from Dedham to Natchez of the author’s Metcalf ancestors; photographs and write-ups on the author’s great-great-grandfather, great-grandfather, great-grand uncles, and grandmother. The main portion of this book is organized according to a variation of the Register System. A summary of boundary and population changes of various New England towns of interest is included, as well as a bibliography containing full citations of source works (short citations are given in the register) and an index. Women are indexed under both their maiden and their married names.
