Funny you should ask. . .I just discovered this book yesterday and made some copies of some information about the Swain line that I needed---I would also like a copy of my own! I don't know where you could buy the book; however, I know the Family History Center in Salt Lake has put the book onto microfilm. You can order it through your local family history center and view it there! The call number for it is : VAULT US/CAN Film
1698038 Item 3.

I would like to purchase a copy of the Swains of Nantucket, please help! In January 2001 I wrote to Robert Swain and received a reply from his widow, Mrs. Anne M. Swain, informing me that he died Jan 5, 2001, along with her apology that there are no more books available. If anyone is able to get hold of a copy of the book, we could duplicate it. I have Anne Swains address if anyone is interested. I also have information about 4 generations after Herschel Vesputian J. Swain if interested. Thanks, Loraine McWhorter

I have a copy but don't know where to buy more. I descend from the Nantucket SWAINs also. Mine moved to the Carolinas in the late 1700's, then to GA. I descend from three descendants of Job SWAIN of Warren Co GA.

My SWAIN moved from Nantucket to the Carolinas, then my Job SWAIN moved to Warren Co GA. I descend from Job SWAIN through two of his daughters and one of his sons.
I would be happy to hear from any of you by direct E-mail.

Richard Swayne & son John Swain were both GrGrandfathers of mine. They were among the first purchasers of Nantucket in 1659. I would also love to purchase the book. Please tell me how.
Thank You Much!
