"Small edition published by Henry Putnam Bliss, Middletown, Conn., 1904": revision of 1881 edition published by the author at Boston, Massachusetts, with introduction and 1st to 4th generations.
NEHGS explanation: This genealogy of the Bliss family, compiled by John Homer Bliss of Norwich, Connecticut, was originally published in 1881, and this edition soon became unavailable, due to the destruction of the original plates used to print the book. In 1904 Henry Putnam Bliss used portions of the original volume to create the edition used in our database, which includes newer information that was compiled in the years between the publication of the first and second editions.
