A new genealogical study promises fascinating insights into the early settlement and development of Vermont. Early Vermont Settlers to 1784 is a research study project that will help family historians trace ancestors who traveled north on their migration from southern New England.
The study by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, based in Boston, will build dossiers of records — occupational, religious, political, military, educational, probate, birth and death, historical, genealogical, and state — to paint a picture of early life in Vermont. The project study director is Scott Andrew Bartley, a genealogist, former NEHGS librarian, and a Vermont native.
