4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Kathie Olsen, President of Seeley Genealogical Society on February 15, 2013
Format: Hardcover
There is a new historical fiction book about Robert Seeley (1602-1667). I encourage everyone to get it and read it! It will be of particular interest to the millions of descendants of Robert Seeley but is a good read for anyone interested in the time period of the 1600's. Written by Carol Seeley Scott, an 11th generation descendant of Robert, The Eel Catcher's Travels - Robert Seeley 1602 -1667 has been a work in progress since 1942 when her father asked her to go to the Library of Congress and research Robert Seeley and the Winthrop Fleet. All personal information concerning Robert has been documented and there is a bibliography of sources included at the end of the book. All personal information is consistent with the Seeley Genealogical Society publication, The Descendents of Robert Seeley (1602-1667): Generations One Through Five. The author is very knowledgeable about the parallel history of England and its colonies at this period of time and the locations where Robert and his family lived; for example, The Fens, London, the Winthrop Fleet, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Amsterdam/New York. As a 13th generation descendant of Robert, I also appreciate the realistic and yet pleasant family relationships depicted in the book.
