After ten years of constant labor, the Genealogy of the Treat family has been completed and published. It was a work of love on my part, and has required not only much time, but quite a sum of money has been expended, for which no remuneration is asked. It was intended at first to publish the Genealogy in octavo form, but it was found that this would result in a large book of about one thousand pages, and it could not be bound in two volumes without dividing a family: so by increasing the size to a royal octavo. And using smaller type in the family records and notes, the number of pages has been much reduced without omitting anything. The number of copies was limited to four hundred, and the price placed at the bare cost of publishing, yet scarce two hundred copies have been subscribed for. Some who were very anxious to have a family history, and made great promises, did nothing or next to nothing, not even subscribing for a book; many willingly furnished records, but did not subscribe; others who would not even notice my letters of inquiry, did subscribe for a book. To such as assisted me my warmest thanks are due, and I have no hard feelings towards those who neglected to aid me. The loss, if there be any, is theirs, not mine.
When my attention was first directed to the subject of genealogy, my purpose was to trace out my own line of' descent, and nothing more. Becoming interested, I determined to hunt up all the descendants, male and female, of the Rev. Samuel Treat, of Eastham, Mass., the oldest son of Gov. Robert Treat of Conn., from whom I am descended. To that end a considerable collection was made, and some autographs obtained, which are here printed. At length it was thought best to publish a complete record of the entire Treat family. The record will be found to be very full. No pains have been spared to make the work a complete One. Places of interest have been personally visited. Records of all kinds - town, church, and probate - have been carefully searched, and the old bury ing grounds have been examined.
