Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Certified Genealogist whose primary focus for 20+ years has been a regional one-name study of the Brooks families of early New England. I maintain a website to share this information at and am preparing a book on the descendants of Capt. Thomas Brooks, who died at Concord, MA in 1667. A secondary focus for just as long has been the old Willow Cemetery in Franconia, NH, which I first visited in 1968. Results of an historical/archaeological survey I did there in 2002 for the Town of Franconia are available at

Corrections and additions, whether to FAG memorials I manage or to the Tributaries web site, are always appreciated.

Hello Christopher,

Nice to "meet" you. I received a suggestion from you today regarding Isaac Stiles. The suggestion simply reads, "Birth information per published in Westfield Vital Records." Are you asking me to add that in the notes? Or if you are a descendant, would you like me to transfer him to you?

I checked my own data base for "Brooks" to see how many I had in my collateral lines. Interestingly, nearly all of the entries I have for Brooks in New England are females who married in the Bassett, Whitney, Crossman lines among others.

Let me know!

RE: Sarah (Brooks) Aiken & Henry
No biggie. I'm already working on him. Trying to find his parents.

Thanks Christopher.

Transferred Sarah (48363148) to you. No need for a transfer of Henry.

Thanks for the offer though.

You sent an Edit for Thomas Bickford 2d VT L.A.
