> Please enlighten me as to the errors in these books.

Although I have seen mention of a few other errors only one set of them is documented in my notes because it is the only set that has affected my research. It concerns Abigail^5 Shepard (John^4, Jacob^3, Thomas^2, Ralph^1), her husband Zephaniah Pratt, and their family in Norton, MA. The discussion of this family in vol. 1, pp. 56-57, is flawed - the children of Zephaniah are misidentified. Abigail's children by her second husband are omitted entirely. See Janet Ireland Delorey, "From Buggs to Briggs: The Family of Zephaniah and Abigail (Shepard) Pratt of Norton, Massachusetts" {The American Genealogist, 73 (1998):292-293) for corrections to the children of Zephaniah. I do not have a copy of the later article concerning the family of Abigail and her second husband, William Rogers. When I have a chance to get to the city library I will look it up and post a followup here with a full citation.
