The Abbott Genealogies 

(in print and electronic format)Charlotte Helen Abbott

Andover genealogist Charlotte Helen Abbott wrote these unpublished genealogies  in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  Earlier versions of some genealogies were published in the local newspaper, the Andover Townsman.   They generally cover older Andover families through the late 19th century.  Miss Abbott’s genealogies are subjective and rich with anecdotes, but list few sources.  Kay O’Neil, with the cooperation of the Andover Historical Society, worked to digitize the typescript manuscript.
