As an adjunct to my earlier Mellen family post, “Richard Mellen of Massachusetts – Genealogy Available,” I’m adding two versions of earlier genealogies of the family. The first one is a reprint of William Barry’s sketch in A History of Framingham, 1847, Barry’s Framingham Mellen reprint. The second one is a reprint of J. H. Temple’s sketch in History of Framingham, 1887, Temple’s Framingham Mellen reprint.
The two reprints are set up as 6″ × 9″ pages and are designed for front-to-back printing.
Family register page by Daniel Gorton, born Charlton, Massachusetts, 4 April 1790. There are three other pages, two sheets front and back, in this document, which will not be posted.

I’ve just discovered that some sites are still linking to the long-gone geocities.com site. geocities was closed by Yahoo in the summer/fall of 2009, so all of the links from other sites to that domain are broken.
My site in particular should be considered obsolete and inaccurate. Please contact me if you desire to know whether anything you use from that site is still correct. Please also remember that the material on that site is copyrighted.
As an update, I’ve edited and updated the ‘introduction’ from that site, and made it into an article for your reference. It is a PDF document, designed to be printed front-to-back, or double-sided, to save paper. Here is A Brief Genealogy of the Maling Family.
