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

9 The Rollins Family in the New Hampshire Provincial Deeds, 1655-1771
Alden M. Rollins
1997, 5½x8½, 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.

Alonzo J. Fogg
(1874), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 708 pp, Heritage Books
While technically a history, the author's intention was to bring "time and space into focus" to show the "present standing of the state," offering a glimpse into the present day progress of New Hampshire. While the first two chapters offer a brief journey through the past to the first settlement of New Hampshire and a brief history of the War of the Revolution, the remaining chapters describe life in New Hampshire during the 1870s. Chapter Three presents a topographical history of all the cities and towns in the state and their resources. Chapter Four provides a statistical summary of the counties and state, pertaining to their geographical position and value of their manufactories and businesses. Chapter Five concentrates on Census information in tabular form. Chapter Six details New Hampshire educational, religious and public institutions. Chapter Seven reviews the climate, scenery, geology and mineralogy of the state and offers a poem on New Hampshire. Finally Chapter Seven describes the political climate of the time. A subject and fullname index allows easy access to information. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a “real” book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

13 Some of the Descendants of Thomas and Sarah Webster of England and New Hampshire
Dale D. Webster
2009, 5½x8½, paper, index, 204 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Thomas Webster was born in Ormesby, England, and came to the New World as a child. His wife, Sarah was born in New Hampshire. Their descendants started in New England and migrated west as the frontier opened to these pioneers. This book covers twelve generations consisting of 452 descendants extending across 400 years. This exceptional work is presented in the Modified Register System and has been compiled mostly from primary sources. It includes lots of interesting historical background and, when possible, extensive biographical sketches of some of the more prominent Webster descendents. The great U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, Daniel Webster, was a descendant. There are also five Mayflower Pilgrim family connections: Dr. Samuel Fuller, Capt. Myles Standish, John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, and Henry Samson. In addition, there are several veterans of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Names are indexed for easy reference; women are indexed by both their maiden and married names. There are eight photographs, some dating from the 1860s; and five maps. Dale Douglas Webster researched his genealogy for over twenty years. In addition, he hired professional researchers in New England. Heritage Books has published five of his books over the last seven years. The initial book was on the Webster line. This book is a significant expansion of that book as he discovered more descendants. He has also had articles published in the Mayflower Quarterly and the Journal of the Sons of the American Revolution.

14 On the Road North of Boston: New Hampshire Taverns and Turnpikes, 1700-1900
Donna-Belle Garvin, James L. Garvin.
236 pages, 8 1/2 x 11, maps, illus., paperback, University Press of New England
A favorite regional history is back in print.
First published in 1988 by the New Hampshire Historical Society, and long since sought after, On the Road North of Boston is back in print. This richly illustrated, entertaining book is an invaluable resource for New Hampshire residents and students of the state's history alike. Nine extensively researched and meticulously prepared chapters depict historic taverns and tavern society of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century New England. Donna-Belle and James Garvin vividly reconstruct the physical landscape: the taverns themselves, the network of roads, travel conditions, traffic and commerce. They immerse the reader in the contemporary tavern atmosphere: encounters with fellow travelers, food, drink, entertainment, and hospitality in its earliest incarnations "on the road north of Boston."
On the Road North of Boston contains rare and wonderful black-and-white illustrations of authentic tavern signs and furnishings, broadsides advertising tavern entertainments, early photographs and drawings of tavern buildings, road signs, vehicles, and bridges, portraits of tavern keepers, stage drivers, and itinerant performers. This book offers modern New England residents and travelers rich chronicles and visions of an age long past.

About Author
DONNA-BELLE GARVIN is the editor of New Hampshire Historical Society’s journal Historical New Hampshire. She has co-authored and edited books and exhibition catalogues on New Hampshire history, including Jerald E. Brown’s The Years of the Life of Samuel Lane (UPNE, 2000). JAMES GARVIN has served as State Architectural Historian for the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources since 1987. He is the author of the best-selling A Building History of Northern New England (UPNE, 2001).

"Their book is not one to pick up and read the way you might a novel, and yet once you start it is hard to put down. There is a lot of history in the Garvin book, comments from newspapers, travelers' tales, diaries, official documents, all with ample footnotes. Yet the most fascinating features of the book are the illustrations. . . a blend of text and illustration, worth a slow and careful reading but that is instructive and exciting even when scanned hastily." -- The Cabinet (Milford, NH)

George C. Gilmore
(1898), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 169 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
In George Gilmore's words, "The State of New Hampshire paid a commendable tribute to the memory of the brave men, living or dead, who represented the State in the Civil War, by appropriating thirty-two thousand, four hundred dollars, to prepare and print two thousand volumes of the 'Revised Register of the Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire in the War of the Rebellion, 1861-'66, prepared and published by authority of the Legislature, by Augustus D. Ayling, Adjutant-General.' One city and several towns have published the record containing the names of the men who represented them. The main object in the publication of this small book, too long delayed since the close of the war, is to furnish the people of Manchester with an alphabetically arranged record, copied from General Ayling's Register, for easy reference to the pages as indicated, for all the particulars regarding the men who represented this city in the Civil War."
