Newsletter of the Parke Society for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Park (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from England, Ireland, and Scotland. Some allied families came from France and Sweden. Ancestors immigrated to Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia in the 1600s. In the 1700s, some settled in Georgia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. During the 1800s, some moved to Ontario (Canada), and to Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Wisconsin. Some primary family lines are of (but not limited to) Robert who immigrated to Salem, Massachusetts ca. 1630, and was buried in Mystic, Connecticut; Richard who lived in Massachusetts in 1635; Roger who lived in New Jersey in 1682; Thomas (1676-1761) who lived in Essex County, Virginia in 1676; and James (1724-1769) of Virginia. Later descendants also lived in New Brunswick (Canada), and in Florida, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington D.C., and elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
