Pages

My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Descendants of Nathan Gillett of Connecticut -- Surname Saturday

While going through copied pages from various books made years ago, I discovered I had another direct line to William Gillett of Connecticut. My tree was done for William's son Jonathan Gillett, see HERE, but I had little on the other son, Nathan, and didn't even know he was an ancestor! I found out when I read the below statement, and saw my Dinah Gillett and Joshua Higley as descendants that I got thrilled. Thanks to The American Genealogist's article "Nathan Gillett's Earlier Descendants" by George E. McCracken. Vol. 56 : 129 (July 1980).

"All writers on the Gillett family listed in our recent Bibliography are unanimous in stating that Jonathan1 Gillett had with him in Windsor, Connecticut, a brother named Nathan1 Gillett, yet the great majority of them, having once mentioned Nathan, drop him like a hot potato, and the few exceptions give brief and faulty accounts of him. It is therefore high time that some attention be given to Nathan's earlier descendants."

As long as researchers continue to dig for the truth, we are never done trying to find new bits of information. It never ends, as I've proven quite a few times. My direct lines are in All Caps. If you would like to see my sources, please write me.
