My paternal ancestors come from the Goodenow family of Sudbury, Massachusetts. Can you tell me if their might be a resource that may save me sometime? I do not know what may have already been researched.
The family in question had two settlers in the 17th century in Sudbury – John Goodenow (c.1596-1654) and Edmund Goodenow (c.1611-1688). A recent publication that may include some of the more recent generations in your family was written by Theodore J. F. Banvard, Goodenows Who Originated in Sudbury, Massachusetts 1638 A.D. : They came from Wilts. And Dorset, England Across American They Roamed and Multiplied. (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1994). This book is available on the shelves of the sixth floor reading room at NEHGS under call number [CS71 /G649/1994].
