This makes a total of 66 sketches. Based on Clarence Almon Torrey’s work New England Marriages Through 1700, the Early New England Families Study Project follows the Great Migration Study Project, and will treat all heads of families not included in The Great Migration Directory (generally, children of Great Migration immigrants and new immigrants after 1640).
