I started researching my Marblehead ancestors about fifteen years ago. My family has been in Marblehead since the 1600’s. Some of the family names are: Martin, Foss, Woodfin, Smith, Standley, Bessom, Freeto, etc. In 2010 I received a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University. In 2011 I published my first book Marblehead and World War I: At Home and Overseas. I am a member of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, New England Historical and Genealogical Society; and the Marblehead Museum and Historical Society. Feel free to share any of your Marblehead stories or connections, perhaps we are related.
