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.
