New England Marriages Prior to 1700

(Annoucements, Sales) Permanent link

Torries Image“Torrey’s New England Marriages” is an essential reference for any genealogist with New England ancestors. Owned by NEHGS, Clarence Almon Torrey’s twelve-volume manuscript enumerates an estimated 99% of all pre-1700 marriages of New Englanders and is now published for the first time in a three-volume set. These records also include those individuals married in Europe before migrating, as well as those couples for whom no marriage record exists but whose marriage can be inferred from other evidence.


This new three-volume set includes Torrey’s complete text, listing all his sources, and for the first time a comprehensive every-name index.


Please note that this set will not be available for shipping until late December, 2010. Any orders for this set will be held until the books are ready to be shipped.
