Some focus is on (but not limited to) Robert Taft who immigrated in 1675, to Braintree, Massachusetts with his wife Sarah and their sons, Thomas, Robert, Daniel, Joseph, and Benjamin. They settled Mendon, Massachusetts ca. 1679. Some other ancestors were Matthew Taft and his wife, Ann who settled Hopkinton, Massachusetts in 1728. Other Tafts also settled in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Vermont in the 1600-1700s. During the 1800s, some moved to Nova Scotia (Canada), and to California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, Wisconsin. Later descendants also lived in Ontario (Canada), Australia, Cuba, and in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nevada, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington D.C., Wyoming, 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 FamilySearch.org 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.
