Jan 19, 2012 Update:
Recently, Richard Frothingham sent me word of the death of Dr. Thomas Eliot Frothingham who passed away on Dec. 27th, 2011. He asked me to share this with my readers. Since I really didn't have a way for others to easily find changes, I decided to redesign this page to share what's new.
I've also made some design changes on the other pages to make it easier to navigate and, hopefully, more pleasing to the eye. If you've visited here before, the old information is all here, just moved around a bit.
I am very excited about the 1940 US Federal Census images being released this April. I'm looking forward to filling out a lot of gaps in my family tree. However, once the images are released, it will take the work of thousands of volunteers to get the images indexed. I've been indexing images for FamilySearch.org on and off for several years and plan to help as much as I can to get this long awaited release ready to search. It's easy to do and lets you feel like you are "giving something back". You can do as little or as much as you want. To learn more about volunteering visit FamilySearch.org.
I am also eagerly awaiting the return of Who Do You Think You Are. The new season starts Feb 3 on NBC. Some of the celebrities sharing their family stories this season are Rob Lowe, Reba McEntire and Paula Dean. The series is sponsored by Ancestry.com

My cousin is directly decended from Ann's first husband, but Ann had 4 sons with John L Frothingham. John was born in Newburyport, Essex, Massachusetts. Do you how he might relate to your family? I do not have anything for his parents.

My great grandfather was Frothingham Fish my grandfather was Leonard Frothingham Fish and my father was Howland Leonard Fish. I'm wondering was this the Eliza Frothingham from your family line? I recently visited Fultonville, NY looking for my ancestors and found many Fish Family monuments there at the old Fultonville cemetery. ...I'm curious to see some ancient pics of Eliza Frothingham or her father.
