Researching Your Colonial New England Ancestors by Patricia Law Hatcher

When the early colonists came to America, they were braving a new world, with new wonders and difficulties. Family historians beginning the search for their ancestors from this period run into a similar adventure, as research in the colonial period presents a number of exciting challenges that genealogists may not have experienced before. This book is the key to facing those challenges.
This new book, Researching Your Colonial New England Ancestors, leads genealogists to a time when their forebears were under the rule of the English crown, blazing their way in that uncharted territory. Patricia Law Hatcher, FASG, provides a rich image of the world in which those ancestors lived and details the records they left behind. With this book in hand, family historians will be ready to embark on a journey of their own, into the unexplored lines of their colonial past.

Did you know there were three, yes three, British colonies. Neither did I until I read this book. It helped to explain a family mystery from the early 18th century. For those stumped on locating some American colonial ancestors, this book may help in defying new approaches for the search. I will not guarantee you will find your ancestor, but it might help.
