- Albion’s Seed reviewed by Nelson Rosit “David Hackett Fischer has performed several notable services in writing Albion’s Seed. First, he has brought to American historiography the approach of the French school of the Annales begun by Georges Dumezil and developed further by Fernando Braudel. French social historians have been concerned with both continuity and change over long periods of time. American historians of the 20th century have written history that is almost exclusively concerned with the new.”
- What to do if your colonial America ancestors didn’t come in one of these four British migrations?
