R. Andrew Pierce presented research into the Wampanoag families of the Westport. 19th century New England genealogists largely ignored Native Americans, who despite centuries in the area, had been marginalized and forgotten. This missing history inspired Andrew Pierce and co-author Dr. Jerome Segel to compile comprehensive genealogies of Wampanoag families. The resulting massive two volume set “Wampanoag Families of Martha’s Vineyard” is a definitive work presenting over 20 years’ research at dozens of archives using vital statistics, census, land, probate, court missionary, military and maritime records.
