"Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire." Sybil Noyes, 1928-1939. Noyes, Libby, Davis; Genealogical Publishing Company; 1996. This book contains information on Maine and New Hampshire families in the 1600s and 1700s ONLY. It does NOT contain information for the 1800s and 1900s. This was originally published in five parts between 1928-1939. The total pages are 795. The arrangement is mainly the same as in Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of New England except the head of the family is given a paragraph and numbered. In the beginning of the book is listed the sources they used and are numbered. It is easy to document each of the entry's for each of the facts. This book is much easier to follow than Savage's as each individual is at the beginning of the paragraph and there are more details on the individuals. It is similar to Savage in that it appears to cover the 1600's or about the first three generations. BW5
