5 CD: Old Landmarks and Historic Fields of Middlesex [Massachusetts]
Samuel Adams Drake
(1895), 2006, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 458 pp, Heritage Books
Not intended as a history or list of chronological events but rather "a series of historic-colloquial rambles among the memorable places of Old Middlesex," Samuel Adams Drake takes the reader down Colonial highways, recounts traditions and discusses men and events. He concentrates on places and people made famous by the events of the Revolution, especially the eleven month campaign for the possession of Boston. He is proud of the fact that Middlesex has contributed a Vice-President, Cabinet Minister, Senator, and three of the eleven Representatives to which Massachusetts is entitled in its councils. Chapter One discusses the Gateway of Old Middlesex; Chapter Two-An Hour in the Government Dockyard; Chapter Three-Bunker Hill and the Monument; Chapter Four-The Continental Trenches; Chapter Five-The Old Wayside Mill; Chapter Six-The Plantation at Mystic Side; Chapter Seven-Lee's Headquarters and Vicinity; Chapter Eight-Old Charlestown Road, Lechmere's Point, and Putnam's Headquarters; Chapters Nine and Ten-A Day at Harvard; Chapter Eleven-Cambridge Camp; Chapter Twelve-Cambridge Common and Landmarks; Chapter Thirteen-Headquarters of the Army; Chapter Fourteen-Old Tory Row and Beyond; Chapter Fifteen-Mount Auburn to Nonantum Bridge; Chapter Sixteen-Lechmere's Point to Lexington; Chapter Seventeen-Lexington to Concord; Chapter Eighteen-The Retreat from Concord; Chapter Nineteen-A Fragment of King Philip's War; and Chapter Twenty-The Home of Rumford. Numerous illustrations accompany the text including a map of Colonial Boston and its environs of a century ago.

6 CD: Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown, in the County of Middlesex, and the Commonwealth of Massachusettes, 1629-1818
Thomas Bellows Wyman
(1879), 2002, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 1186 pp, Heritage Books
Charlestown was established about 1630 at the beginning of the Great Migration, and was annexed to Boston in 1874. It is situated in Middlesex County which was created in 1643 when Massachusetts Bay Colony was divided into four shires. Originally Charlestown also included Burlington, Malden, Somerville, Stoneham, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn, and parts of Arlington, Cambridge, Medford, and Reading. Its extant records begin in the mid-1630s. This is truly a phenomenal genealogical collection, being probably the most detailed and comprehensive work of its kind. Wyman spent a lifetime collecting and arranging the material for his work, but unfortunately died suddenly of pneumonia shortly before it was published. This work attempts to identify all the residents of Charlestown from its first settlement until about 1818, placing them in a genealogical context. In addition to the genealogies, Wyman provides a concise summary of the real estate transactions which each person was involved in, as culled from the first 139 volumes of Middlesex deeds, Suffolk County deeds, and town records. This collection presents a remarkable synthesis of data from town, church, county, and private records, and belongs in the library of every researcher interested in Massachusetts Bay Colony families. The entries are arranged in a very useful dictionary format.
