Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 – Five new sketches.

Added this week, sketches of Luther Pomeroy, Chester, MA; Nathaniel Porter, Great Barrington, MA; Christopher Bowen, Partridgefield (Peru), MA; James Cody Apthrop, Partridgefield (Peru), MA; and Jonathan Remington, Adams, MA.

This database contains genealogical sketches of families enumerated in the 1790 census for Berkshire and Hampshire Counties (in what now also includes Franklin and Hampden Counties). Each sketch begins with the head of household, their genealogical information, followed by their spouse and any further biographical information. Following this is the information about their children and their spouses. Many families migrated into western Massachusetts only to migrate further west, often through New York, and elsewhere. These sketches were submitted by NEHGS members and staff and edited by Helen S. Ullmann, FASG.

Our bookstore also offers Western Massachusetts Families in 1790 in print.
