This quarterly journal, commonly called simply "The Register," is certainly the oldest, and arguably the best, genealogical periodical published in the United States. Within its volumes researchers will find some of the most valuable genealogical compilations and source record transcriptions to be found anywhere. It is difficult, one might even say foolhardy, to attempt to do research on New England families without reference to this important series. However, copies of the original editions of these volumes are becoming increasingly difficult to find, so Heritage Books has reprinted the early volumes of this important serial in order to make them more accessible to the rank and file genealogist. Each volume has an index, and in addition, a comprehensive index to the first fifty volumes is also available. In the description below it is only possible to touch on some of the main articles-each volume also contains much additional material. Genealogies: Ames, Barrett, Bulkley, Gilbert, Hall, Hathorne, Houghton, Jolliffe, Lane, Ludlow, Pope, Roberts, Sedgwick, Tarbox, Thurston. Biographical sketches: Aaron Cleveland, Maria B. Craig, Joshua E. Crane, Capt. John Cutler, Edmund H. Cutts, John Hasey, John Holbrooke, John Jacob, Martha R. McFadden, Nicholas Manning, Otis F. Manson, John Pierce, Jonathan Remington, Nathaniel Reynolds, Augustus E. Sanderson, Paul R. Wentworth, William H. Wentworth, John Wight, John Whipple. Other records: Boston marriages, 1717-1769; Colchester, Conn.; Alumni of William and Mary College and Yale College who have held official position; Town list of volunteers in the War for the Preservation of the Union; Soldiers in King Philip's War; Index to Place Names for Register volumes 1-41; Chart of Cape Cod early in the 1700s; List of American prisoners taken at the battle of Bunker Hill; American graduates in medicine at the University of Edinburgh. (1888, 1996), 2015, 51/2x81/2, paper, index, 438 pp

Finding Your Family in County Sligo This illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Sligo, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Sligo. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Sligo families found in heraldic records. Included you will find a full page county map from the Atlas of Ireland, along with a listing of modern parishes and old townlands, along with the address and location of records for more research. Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Sligo. What this book does This work includes copies of actual records (some worn, torn and faded), from the IGF Library. It also includes rough sketches of family coats of arms and notes from centuries past - seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided here will help research any family in the county, including old Irish families, and settler families from England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This book is a hands on guide for finding your family in Sligo- some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories . (For that see 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small', the first book in the Irish Families series by O'Laughlin.) The Irish Families Project for Sligo The Master book to the 29 volume Irish Families series is 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small'. That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Sligo, and the surrounding areas. " County Sligo Genealogy and Family History Notes", volume 24 in the series, expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Sligo. (In this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research.)
