Seth C. Cary, JOHN CARY, THE PLYMOUTH PILGRIM, (1911) 2009.
Seth Cary has compiled a genealogy of the family and descendants of John Carey, who had settled in Duxbury, Massachusetts, by 1637. The author made an effort to follow female as well as male lines. In the early generations, this generally extended to the children and sometimes grandchildren of a Cary daughter. In the later generations, and especially in the accounts of those living in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this coverage was quite extensive. (more...)
=== New Data CDs from the Great Britain ===================
The following data CDs from Great Britain are now available from WhollyGenes.com:
KELLY'S POST OFFICE DIRECTORY OF SURREY 1867.
Republished here on full-searchable CD-Rom is the 1867 edition of Kelly's Post Office Directory of Surrey. Containing nearly 450 printed pages, which includes a map of the county. As with most other directories published by Kelly's, this 1867 Surrey edition, although primarily a directory, also serves as a gazetteer. Originally issued as part of a joint publication for counties Essex, Herts, Middlesex, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, this is one of the earlier editions of Kelly's Directory of Surrey. (more...)
THE PARISH REGISTERS AND PAROCHIAL DOCUMENTS IN THE ARCHDEACONRY OF WINCHESTER.
Published in 1909 by the Wykeham Press, The Parish Registers and Parochial Documents in the Archdeaconry of Winchester was edited by the then Archdeacon of Winchester, William Andrews Fearon, D.D., and the Curate of Burghclere, John Foster Williams, M.A. Containing some 204 printed pages, the title of this publication, as the authors themselves admit, is a little misleading. On the first count, this publication is, although fascinating, an inventory of the Hampshire parochial records held in the Archdeaconry of Winchester; and on the second count, the inventory conducted by Messrs Fearon and Williams ceases in 1812 for parish registers and 1800 for parochial records.

BULMER'S HISTORY, TOPOGRAPHY AND DIRECTORY OF WESTMORELAND, 1885.

(more...)
BAGSHAW'S, HISTORY, GAZETTEER AND DIRECTORY OF SHROPSHIRE, 1851.
Samuel Bagshaw's 'History, Gazetteer & Directory of Shropshire' was published in Sheffield in 1851 and the beginning of the full title of the work provides a clear indication of the scope of the publication: History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Shropshire; Comprising a General Survey of the County with a Variety of Historical, Statistical, Topographical, Commercial and Agricultural Information, Shewing The Situation, Extent and Population of all The Towns, Parishes, Chapelries, Townships, Villages, Hamlets and Extra-Parochial Liberties; containing more than 700 printed pages and republished here on fully-searchable CD-Rom, Bagshaw's Gazetteer and Directory of Shropshire is one of the best reference aids for the county from this period.
