I am all about the Woo- bin. :). Woburn, Cambridge, Cambridge Farms (now Arlington), Lexington, Newton, even as far west as Concord.
Salem puts you in Essex county, another axis, and somewhat covered in the Salem Witch Trials Project.
So let's think of an interesting event to build a project around. For instance, we've done "founders of Newbury" based on a monument.
What's put there for Middlesex county?
It actually should be Charlestown, not Woburn, I think, based on this:
Charlestown, settled in 1629, only nine years after the Pilgrims founded Plymouth Colony, is actually the starting point of Woburn’s history. In the early 1630s, looking to expand Charlestown, its citizens petitioned the newly elected representatives of the Great and General Court of Massachusetts Bay Colony for more land. A wide extent of territory on the “main land” eight miles northward was granted to Charlestown (this area includes present day Woburn, Winchester, Burlington and parts of Stoneham and Wilmington).
So - we need an official list of some sort to identify the founders / settlers.
No wonder I knew my source so easily.:). I sent you a collaboration request to join the project. The list of founders need updates on the project index.
That Learned fellow is familiar Hatte. :):)
Maybe when done with Woburn, back track to Charlestown, 1629? I've actually been working a bit on those families.
Okay, the Richardson brothers appear to have some difficulties. Samuel, is shown as being born in 1670, yet shows as the brother of Thos. III and Ezekiel the immigrant. about 100 years off, in other words.
So do you know how to disconnect her from the wrong husband? Be SURE the children have the correct parents 1st (I speak from bitter experience).
Once that's checked (parents are assigned easiest from the drop down box in the Edit Relationships tab) then it's simply "remove this relationship" to "grant the Geni divorce."
I think we're almost done! David Prins has helped out also.
