Brewster Collection Added to NYGB eLibrary

The following announcement was received by Olive Tree Genealogy from The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society

Brewster Collection Added to NYG&B eLibrary 

Emma Brewster Jones
Our digital library now includes all 27 portions of the Brewster Collection donated by Miss Emma C. Brewster Jones in 1908. This genealogical material on the descendants of Elder William Brewster, passenger on the Mayflower, contains extensive material on lines of descent through female Brewster family members.

The new material in the digital library is particularly exciting as it contains material on the female lines; none of this was included in her two-volume Brewster Genealogy published in 1907. Surnames listed include: Bartlett, Christophers, Coolidge, Freeman, Fosdick, Knowles, Mayo, Paine, Pickett, Prence, Prince, Starr, Turner, and Wetherell.

Members will be interested to know that the NYG&B acquired the Brewster Collection almost 100 years ago, and a description was published in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, (Vol. 044, No.3).
