Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788430750, CD-ROM)

"These pages show what manner of men and women are now, two hundred seventy and more years after the landing on Plymouth Rock, dwelling in the old homes and haunts of the Pilgrims. Many of the worthies here commemorated are 'Mayflower' descendants, kinsmen and kinswomen of that good and valiant band, through various lines of ancestry. Others trace from the 'Fortune,' the 'Ann,' the 'Little James,' the 'Diligent,' or later venturous barks, some being valued American citizens of foreign birth, yet...truly imbued with the Pilgrim spirit..." With five hundred and twenty-seven names in the index, denoting that number of biographical sketches of prominent workers in various fields of useful activity, factors of progress and worthy of remembrance, this book may be considered...fairly representative of the industrial, the professional, and the public life of its locality in the closing years of the nineteenth century. In addition to biographical lore, there is genealogical detail and family history. "To the writer of select biographies falls the cheerful task of setting down what is best deserving of remembrance and emulation in the virtuous lives of earnest workers in divers fields of usefulness." The fullname index provides easy access to each individual biography and a number of portraits highlight the text. (1897), 2008, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe, v6, PC and Mac, 641 pp.
