BOOK NOTICES.

A Genealogical History of the Harwood Families, Descended from
Andrew Harwood. who was Born in England, and Resided in Boston, Mass.
By Watson H. Harwood. Second edition. In the first edition the record extended
back only to James Harwood, a grandson of Andrew. Chasm Falls, N. Y. 1896.

This little work shows how information comes, very often, after it was supposed
all was obtained. That is the experience of many, and some, for that reason, favor
the publication of the early generations, in the first instance, in the Record, where,
falling under the eye of genealogical students and experts, it calls out criticism or
information which is useful when a larger work is published. The plan followed
is not that adopted by the Register and Record, but is plain. The index gives each
Harwood recorded. There are eleven generations treated, though the last is rep-
resented by but three little ones. The book is illustrated with twenty-four portraits.

The Standishes of America. By Myles Standish, A.M., M.D., member of the
New England Historic Genealogical Society, the Standish Monument Association,
the Society of Colonial Wars, etc. Boston, Mass. l'rivately printed for the author
by Samuel Usher. 1895. Second edition, 8vo, cloth, pp. 143.

This edition consists of 150 copies only. The name, which has become familiar
to every American, is here traced back to the doughty Puritan captain who figures so
prominently in the prose and poetry, the history and legends, of the Mayflower
pilgrims. The index is very full. There is a copy of the monument
Hill, Iluxbury, Mass., and several portraits. The author has added something re-
garding other Standishes which do not appear to be of the family of Myles.

The Thomas Book, giving the Genealogies of Sir Rhys ap Thomas, K.G.,
the Thomas Family descended from Him, and of Some Allied Families. By
Lawrence Buckley Thomas, D.D. Imprinted at New York City by The Henry T.
Thomas Company, 1896.

This beautifully printed and copiously illustrated octavo volume is one which
affords us pleasure to commend to readers of the Record as a carefully prepared
and standard work of reference. Among the special features of the book is a bio-
graphical dictionary of noted persons of the name of Thomas, including many who
were early emigrants to America, or who may have been ancestors of American fami-
lies, and a complete listj>f those who held commissions' among the Continentals of the
Revolutionary armies. There are pedigrees of sixty Thomas families, and more
than one hundred allied families of other names. Among these are many whose
genealogies have not hitherto appeared in print. The work contains a full reference
index, about fifty full-page illustrations, chiefly quaint and rare portraits and views,
and about one hundred coats of arms, many ancient wills, and a valuable list of
Colonial Thomas grants in Virginia. In addition to the regular edition, there is
another on large paper, bound in half-morocco, limited to two hundred and fifty
copies, sold at fifteen dollars, the price of the octavo edition being one-half. J. G. w.

Genealogical Memoir of the Clnnabell, Conable, or Connable Family.
John Cunnabkll, of London, England, and Boston, Mass., and His Descend-
ants. 1650-1886. By Edwards J. Connable, of Jackson, Mich., and John B. Xew-
' comb, of Elgin, 111. Jackson, Mich.. Daily Citizen Book Printing House. 1886.

This is not a new book, but has only recently come to us. There are twenty-three
pages of index, and a pedigree chart of the first six generations. The homestead of
Samuel, at Bernardston, Mass., makes a fine frontispiece, and there are many fac-
similes of signatures interspersed.

Ancestry of John Drake of Windsor. Ct. — This book (manuscript) has
recently been deposited with the Registrar of Pedigree by the Rev. M. E. Dwight as
a continuation of his " Register of Pedigree," which, according to vote of the New
York Genealogical and Biographical Society, each member is expected to make out
and deposit in the archives of the Society. The volume, which is elegantly bound, is
complete In all its parts. It contains a dedication to "Richard Henry Greene, a
descendant of John Drake of Windsor, Ct.,"a preface, table of contents, eighteen
large charts, besides several smaller ones, and an exhaustive index. The latter con-
tains the names of fifteen hundred recorded ancestors of John Drake of Windsor, Ct.,
and the sources of authority for their insertion are also given. Among these names
are those of one hundred and thirty kings and emperors, one hundred and seventy
counts, fifty earls, and sixty dukes and marquises. T>.
