Subtitled “A Primer for Genealogists and Family Historians,” this book provides a synopsis of the original patterns of settlement and migration for the United States. The author discusses each of the 50 states, however, his emphasis is on the states and territories that were established between the colonial period and the middle of the nineteenth century. For each state the author examines pioneers’ places of origin, reasons for settlement, specific places of settlement in America, names of pioneering families, migrations within and between states, and more. Equally important, throughout the volume he names the key sources for further research. (108pp. Genealogical Pub. Co., 2017.)
