Question:  I am looking for my Holbrook family from Brockton, Massachusetts in the 1860's.  Can you refer me to a good history of that community to help me?


Answer:  The city of Brockton was not always known by that name.  Until 1874 Brockton was North Bridgewater, Massachusetts.   Bradford Kingman authored a good genealogy of families and history of the community in a volume at NEHGS.  You will want to refer to:

History of North Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts : from its first settlement to the present time, with family registers. (Boston, 1866) Call # [F74.N812 K56 1866a].

A lot of persons fail to recognize just how crucial these Cultural Center are in the lives of persons. Completely nothing like the exploration into one's heritage and if it takes an Cultural center to do so, good!
