genealogical notes: Hart family of Southeastern Massachusetts

 

 

Posted here in the form of downloadable Word file (below) are extensive notes I compiled over the course of several years on my New England Hart family ancestors. It was a very interesting family to research.

My maternal grandmother Annie C. Handy — nee Annie Congdon Hart — belonged to this family.

A key, but by no means my only, source was an indispensable, exhaustively researched, authoritative Hart family genealogy by James M. Hart that was published in 1903 and which carried the family genealogy right down to the family of my maternal grandmother. Interested family historians will see that I have mined just about every conceivable scrap of documentary evidence I could find in various archives and sources.

This report was compiled for the benefit of a Hart descendant who recently contacted me about a post on this site.
