I have lived most of my 70+ years in California (Bay Area) but have spent many many months/years exploring the East Coast, discovering and then writing up each of my family lines - all arrived before the Revolution. Following is a list of the books. From 1982-1995 they are in my maiden name, Harrell, then in my married name, Gerlack. All are heavily footnoted, with maps, etc. Really enjoyed getting to know these ancestors.
