Volume 26 contains primarily new ancestral discoveries made in 1996 & 1997 by Robin Bush, former Deputy Archivist in the Somerset County Record Office in Taunton, England. He spent nearly 200 man-hours, over a period of a year, on this work. These discoveries are the result of his searching the original records in the county record offices of Somerset, Dorset, Devon & Wiltshire. Also included in this volume are some discoveries of early West Country immigrants that have appeared in other recent publications. Finally, some of these discoveries were the result of efforts by two associates of the Mary & John Clearing House, Martha Strong of Plymouth, Michigan and Judy Osborn of St. Petersburg, Florida.
