From the Author's Remarks to the Second Edition
"My original design for publishing the second edition of Thurston Genealogies was to reproduce all that the first edition contained, with such additions as I have been able to collect. But the additions were so voluminous I found it necessary to leave out the wills, lengthy history of individuals, and some historical matter, amounting to one hundred and thirteen pages, which appeared in the first edition. In all such cases, however, I have referred to the omissions in foot notes, giving the page where they can be found. The number of these references being nearly one hundred, shows that both volumes will be required to make the history complete."
