Following are some items that were mentioned during the 25 April 2013 Fieldstone Common interview with Scott C. Steward and Christopher C. Child about the book The Descendants of Judge John Lowell of Newburyport, Massachusetts.
The podcast of the interview is now available.
The Descendants of Judge John Lowell of Newburyport, Massachusetts, published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, is available for purchase from the New England Historic Genealogical Society online bookstore.
Scott C. Steward and Christopher C. Child, the authors of the book, both work for the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Scott is the Director of Publications and Chris is Genealogist of the Newbury Street Press.
Judge John Lowell was not the immigrant ancestor for the Lowell family which hailed from England but he was the progenitor of a long line of successful Lowell descendants. You can learn more about Judge John Lowell on Wikipedia.
During the program we discussed writing up a family genealogy. Chris and Scott mentioned the helpful book Genealogical Writing in the 21st Century, 2nd edition (Boston: NEHGS, 2006). There is also, a register style template created by Helen Schatvet Ullmann which is available free for download (you do not need to be a member to access this).
The New England Historic Genealogical Society, the publisher of The Descendants of Judge John Lowell of Newburyport, Massachusetts, donated two copies of the book which were given as “door prizes” during the live show to listeners in Utah and Georgia. A big thank you to the New England Historic Genealogical Society for their generosity!
You can read the full story of the cookbook (as mentioned during the show) — and see pictures of Gommy in her Lopez garden and even a link to one of her recipes — on the Heirloom Registry’s blog.
