Re: Franklin Co. MA
My husband is Brad Amstein, great-grandson of William Adam Amstein, who was from Franklin County, Mass. We have a little information on the family we'd be happy to share with you.
You may have it already, though. I think you've been in touch with my mother-in-law, Deanna Amstein, through your work on the Smythe (?) family tree.
Let me know what you have, or e-mail me at email@example.com, and I'll send you info about what we have.
