While tracing your ancestors, don't overlook the wealth of information to be found by visiting the towns where they lived and reading the histories of those towns. This article tracks the history of the fishing industry in New England.
- Zachariah Foote and the Migration to Nova Scotia

Descendants of Pasco Foote can proudly claim the ninetieth century astronomer, Sherburne Wesley Burnham, as kin. The story of this self-made man, who was an important contributor to the study of double stars, is an interesting one. Sherburne Wesley Burnham was born December 12, 1838 in Thetford, Vermont, the son of Marinda Foote and Roswell Burnham
