Subject: [GM-L] Commonwealth of Massachusetts web site (Listers using web-tv)
Date: Wed, 31 Oct 2001 08:09:25 -0500
I just wanted to remind people that the official web site for the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a wealth of information:
In particular, you can find a listing of all towns and cities in the states,
with information about them. And, there is a page where they are divided
by County. You can find the year .. that the town was incorporated .. on
each information page.
And, you can browse through their "History" information:
....ALSO, I tried to respond to two different Listers within the past four
days, and my e-mails to them bounced. They both use WEB-TV for their
e-mails. My guess is that their systems only accept a limited number of
e-mails, so the rest got bounced.
o What I was going to tell Maria is that the Thomas Kidder and Phebe Axtell
marriage/family is probably not the family she is looking for. They
basically stayed in the Alstead and Enfield, NH, area. And, there is a
strong possibility that they became "Quakers." This also means that ..
this family had no descendants. (Quakers are celibate.)
o What I was going to tell Joanne was that the towns in the Berkshire
Mountains were not founded until at least the 1730's, and more probably
after 1760. ... The listings of towns on the Comm. of Mass. web site
will tell you when each town was incorporated, and I doubt too many towns
past the Connecticut River were founded before 1700.
Thank you for your time. Have a good day.
