  1. Thank-you so very much for all your hard work and efforts – it is so very much appreciated!!

    J. Record

  2. I love this work. When you write that more updates “await the next update to the website,” I’m reminded of how the kids felt, waiting for the next _Harry Potter_ book.

  3. I notice the family of Thomas Dibble on the list. I wonder if, with this fresh look at the Dibbles, anything more has been found regarding Mr. Richardson’s discovery that a Dorothy Dibble married a William King in 17 Jan 1621/2 in Yeovil, Somerset (“Additions and (a few) Corrections to Ancestors of American Presidents” by Gary Boyd Roberts, New England Ancestors vol 4, nos. 5-6, pp. 38-40, item 6.)

    This Dorothy certainly appears to be a promising candidate for the wife, Dorothy ______, of the immigrant Wiliam King: They were married about 2 years before William’s first child was born, the William King family and the Thomas Dibble family both came on the same ship (Marygould — Hotten pp. 285 ff), and many others on that ship came from Somerset.


    1. Hi Howard, I did not do any new research on the origins of Thomas Dibble. Early New England Families are summaries of what has been published, in some cases with additions like probate and deeds and commentary about problems. Thanks for the suggestion about Dorothy. I will file that under King, although I won’t be dealing with that family until it is time to do William2 King who was married in 1652, probably a decade from now!

  4. If I might be so bold…… is there any thought to a sketch of David Sage of Middleton? He may not qualify…..but I thought I’d take a chance to ask.

    Best regards,

    J. Record

    1. Jeff, David Sage “qualifies” but the catch is that we are working on sketches by marriage years and are still at 1641-1642. Since David’s first marriage was about 1669/70, it will be a long time before the project reaches that milestone.

  5. I’d love it if you’d publish your “short” list, ie the names you will be working on over the next 1-2 years. I have about 15 ancestors I’m watching for. (Thomas Hammond, George Clark, Joseph Wise, Alice Freeman, Mary Ward & brother John, John Fletcher, William Kelsey, William Thrall, Sarah Bearding (wife of Thomas Spencer) & father Nathaniel, Thomas French, John Bishop, Henry Goldman, Allen Breed, John Stevens, George Weekes, Thomas WIlmarth)

    1. Carol, I understand, but the list isn’t that simple at this stage. Hopefully, I will be able to post some advance lists in short sections as we go along. In the meantime, I’m working on a formula to help people determine whether their ancestors are going to be covered by Great Migration or Early Families to be included in an upcoming post.
