Thinking About My Genealogy

9781558499614_p0_v1_s550x406  I’ve now finished reading this excellent book and will start checking whether any of the early settlers of Watertown are related to me.  Certainly a lot of the names were familiar to me as names of people or streets or schools in Belmont.  Belmont where I grew up was part of Watertown in the period covered 1630-1680.
