Klappentext

Excerpt from The History and Genealogy of the Prentice, or Prentiss Family, in New England, From 1631 to 1852

The Editor and Publisher, after freely offering his materials to several of the Prentice or Prentiss name, was induced, at their urgent request, to undertake this work, and to have five hundred 00pies printed, and hopes that the surplus two hundred copies will be taken, that the expenses of publication may be repaid, and he relies on those interested to aid him.

Where the Editor personally examined Town, Church, Bible, or other records, he has endeavored to be accurate where the infor mation was derived from others, it is as received. Authorities are named, unless overlooked. Errors will arise in such a work. Lists of many families were sent to him without dates, &c., or ex planation of relationship to others. On many old records of the children's births, the mother's Christian name only is mentioned. These omissions leave many blanks, for each family to fill up; and if made known to the writer, can be corrected in a future edition, if ever called for. The account of many families, of old date, is imperfect, as it was impossible to obtain information. What there is, will be a starting point for an accurate account by each family.

It is to be regretted that so few old portraits could be found, and that more of those of the present generation could not be induced to have their portraits inserted for the gratification of their friends and successors, who would prize them much. We consider a por trait of a deceased relative, or an old ancestor, as invaluable.

The portraits and views were furnished at his request, and are all that could be obtained. The associations and memories of childhood, called up by a view of the Old Homestead, would be an oasis in the desert of life.
