Hello,

A relative I met while visiting Portsmouth, NH in 1984 showed me research that he did on his Amazeen ancestry, much of it early history. As I recall, the primary sources he found were located in the state archives of New Hampshire (e.g., wills from the early 1700s, one of which was John Amazeen's will from 1705, marriage records, cases before the magistrate, tax lists, etc.) My perception at the time I visited him was that during his retirement years he put quite an effort into researching the Amazeen family. He put together the Amazeen family tree up to the early 1800s based on this research. When he died in 1986 I was fortunate to have some of this information provided to me by a cousin who was given access to this research by his widow. This was the source of the family tree I outlined in the earlier posting. Prior to meeting this person, I obtained family information from the Library of Congress' Local History and Genealogy room in the early 1980s, but nothing as detailed as was given to me by my cousin.

Do you have Amazeen ancestry? The information you provided corresponds to that given to me. Where did you obtain your information?

Charles Amazeen
