Would like to know folks' critical opinion of the two works most cited here:
- Foote family comprising the genealogy and history of Nathaniel Foote of Wethersfield, Conn. and his descendants
... (2 vols) by Abram w. Foote / 1907
Foote family: descendants of Nathaniel Foote, one of the
first settlers of Wethersfield, Conn., genealogical notes of Pasco Foote, who settled in Salem, Mass., and
John Foote and others of the name, who settled more recently
in New York. by Nathaniel Goodwin, / 1849.
Where do we find the most reliable reporting, or the most egregious errors?
