The entries are very concise.

Unlike her other book, Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers of 1607 - 1635, the new book contains information of 1607 - 1800.

I recently purchased this book as I am always curious of the lives of the people who came to the New World and established Jamestowne of 1607. I have Ms. McCartney's Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers of 1607 - 1635. So purchasing this other edition only seemed logical to me.

Unlike her other book, Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers of 1607 - 1635, the new book contains information of 1607 - 1800. Not only does this book deal with the English but it also discusses the Native American rulers, and other nationals who settled in the New World.

Ms. McCartney talks to & teaches her readers. She doesn't talk below or above you.

This book is very informnative if the reader is researching their ancestoral heritage. It also provides information about what each colonist did, who they married, how many children, etc. This book is an excellent source to go to when researching.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is connected in some way to the colonists of Jamestowne.

I would love to see this book in Kindle format. I have literally taken my pink highlighter and outlined information about some of the colonists who have made me curious.

This book, which was published as a part of the 400th anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown, is nowhere as good as it should be. Martha McCartney should have combined all her research into this volume, as the title infers. However, people who are mentioned in her earlier works are missing from this one, as are some of those who were killed in the 1622 Massacre. For those who are serious about researching the Jamestown colony, I recommend looking elsewhere.

I was disappointed that Ms. McCartney did not include the names of women immigrants in this book, as she has previously in other histories, For example, "Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers 1607-1635"
Nethertheless, she is an eminent historian of early Virginia settlement..

This is the best source for tracking Colonial Virginia families. It has a thorough index of names and places on Jamestowne Island for for 193 years.

I was happy with the brief front matter but disappointed when it came to the remaining 436 pages of individual information in that it failed to include a large percentage of early Virginias. Perhaps it is too much to expect a full accounting of documented residents but the title does imply a comprehensive listing. From my research interest I picked 12 documented people active in the second half of the sevententh century and found 4 did not appear even if you looked for their ancestors as root. In addition many promiment second and third generation people were not mentioned if their fathers or grandfathers were included, and the general lack of familial linkage between generations makes the use of the book as a reference or research guide limited. This failing is not general as great effort was made to document the lineage of some European and many Native American entries.

I will certainly use the book and its companion, Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers 1607-1635, but I will assume that they are only partial listings with uneven treatment of early residents.

Very interesting book; however, did not gain anything new from it. Was hopeful that's why I bought it. Might be more helpful to others.
