(Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) I recently learned about a resource that might be of interest to genealogists researching older structures in central and eastern Massachusetts. Photographs of Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Structures Taken in Massachusetts 1887-1945 by Harriette Merrifield Forbes is an electronic resource available via the American Antiquarian Society website. Author and historian Harriette Merrifield Forbes (1856-1951) was the mother of Esther Forbes, the author of Johnny Tremain. The images in the collection are indexed by place, name, and subject. The collection includes approximately 800 images, with the majority of images taken in Worcester and Middlesex counties. Coverage of Worcester area structures is excellent.
