Resources of Information and Help

Just as Jonathan Fairbanks or John Prescott could not accomplish the things they did without their family, friends, and business associates. This blog and future book could not be brought to life with out the help of so many others.

This is just the start of the list of many who have helped and those who will help in the future. Together we can make this project a quality way to share Colonial New England History and the story of the Fairbanks and Prescott family. Please visit often to see new names that will be added.
