Frequently Asked Questions: Look up the mostly commonly asked questions among fellow descendants and researchers who visit thomas-hastings.org.
Best Sources in Print: Over many years, we have identified and often purchased the most helpful books relating to the Thomas Hastings family and collateral lines. Find these titles here and begin building your own library.
Great Web Links: Like our book list, we have some relevant sites that we like and go back to often. Even after a decade there is not competing with the likes of “Cyndi’s List” (included) so this is meant to be a very specialized list not all inclusive.
Y-DNA Project: Our effort to fill in the gaps in the written record which essentially dead-ends in 1634 England.
Other Related Families mentioned in the Hastings Memorial: In the nearly 400 year history of the Thomas Hastings family in America, there are numerous families, beginning in ancient Watertown, that have become extensively intertwined with our family and share common history and experience.
Selected list: For more information on the immigrant and early generations of these families, there are two excellent sources among many to choose from. Bond’s Watertown Genealogies always stands at the top of any Watertown list but, for some like the Whipple family who were not of Watertown, a better source is Thompson’s Mobility and Migration. See our Books page (linked and above) for more information.
