Graveyards can often supply facts that cannot be found in town records. Unfortunately, gravestones frequently disappear so it is especially important to preserve this information before the primary source is lost. The inscriptions within these pages were transcribed by C. Alice Baker at the request of the New England Historic Genealogical Society of Boston. After Miss Baker's death, this task was completed by Emma L. Coleman. This work consists of exact transcriptions of the epitaphs from the Old Burying Ground at Deerfield, Massachusetts. The text of each transcription is arranged on the page... View more info

The Planters of the Commonwealth came to the New World “to plant…the seeds of a new nation whose fruit should become another England, with its traditions, culture, and laws.” Who were these planters? Where were they from? Why did this “Great Emigration” occur? In this book Col. Banks explores the answers to these questions and shows what it must have been like for the passengers on these ships. Using records from both England and America, Col. Banks has compiled the most comprehensive collection of passenger lists for this period—3,600 passengers on the 96 ... View more info
