The Yankee Roots database has been updated.  This update adds Surnames 
C-D from Mitchell's "History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater" to 
the database.  Major surnames in this group include:

This brings the number of individuals in the database to just under 37,000.

As always, local histories can be misleading and the data provided in 
the database should be verified through original source records.  You 
can find many transcriptions on Ray Brown''s and Jane Devlin's web 
sites.  Also, Dale Cook has the full text of Mitchell's Bridgewater 
history on line.

Feel free to leave post-its, but please know that the vast majority of 
family lines in this database are not mine, but rather, this is an 
effort to tie together the diverse families listed in various local 
histories and family genealogies.
