We present the Hα line profiles of all members, compare them to our IR observations of dusty disks (Two Micron All Sky Survey JHK + IRAC + MIPS 24um), use the radial velocities as a membership criterion, and calculate the rotational velocities. Description: Hectochelle is the high-resolution, multifiber echelle spectrograph, which operates at the wide-field mode of the Cassegrain 6.5m MMT telescope in Mount Hopkins, Arizona. We observed two fields in Tr 37 during two engineering runs on 2004 December 1 and 2. A total of 231 and 233 objects, respectively, were observed in the configurations. File Summary:

Note (2): Hα type is a combination of c, c: (c), w, w: and (w) meaning: c = (standing for CTTS) if broad emission with extended velocity wings was detected w = (standing for WTTS) otherwise Note (3): The error in the rotational velocity is proportional to the rotational velocity times 1/(1+R). Note (4): Membership is stated with the abbreviations: Y = sure member P = probable member PN = probable non-member N = non-member (e) = membership was obtained from the presence of Hα strong emission and/or Li absorption lines (r) = membership was obtained via the radial velocity (r) * = new members conf = denotes previous possible members (from low-resolution spectroscopy) that are confirmed as members based on the radial velocities rej = denotes previous possible members that are most likely non-members according to radial velocities. Finally, a comment on binarity (SB2 or SB1) is added in this field. TOn = nonaccreting transition object TOa = accreting transition object

Note (1): Summary of the properties of the stars in Tr 37. Only the star being sure or probable members are displayed here. Note (2): Ages and masses are derived from the V vs. V-I diagram, using the isochrones by Siess et al. 2000A&A...358..593S (see Paper I, Paper II (2004AJ....128..805S, 2005AJ....130..188S) for a detailed description of spectral typing and age/mass calculation). Note (3): Errors in the vsini are derived as vsini/(1+R) (see Tonry & Davis 1979AJ.....84.1511T; Hartmann et al., 1986ApJ...309..275H). Note (4): The best estimate of the accretion rate is selected for this summary. Whenever accretion rates derived from U band photometry were available (Paper II), we included them. Since some stars had been observed in U band in two campaigns, we include both values. As in the text, we denote with dM/dt=0 those stars with no U excess and Hα profiles consistent with diskless WTTS or Class III objects. For stars with no detectable U excess but broad profiles, we give an upper limit to accretion of <0.1 10-8M/yr (see text). We do not provide an accretion value for stars not observed in U band and broad or probably broad Hα profiles. For the exceptional star 13-277, whose spectral type is uncertain due to veiling, we provide an approximate accretion rate from the Hα width at 10% maximum (see text). Most of these stars without a value for accretion are likely to be accreting (showing broad profiles, see figures). Note (5): The comments include the class (I, II, III or Transition object), the binarity as: SB1 = single-lined spectroscopic binary; SB2 = double-lined spectroscopic binary and the details on the Hα profile: Ba = blue-shifted absorption; Ra= red-shifted absorption; Za = absorption with approximately zero velocity shift; B = blue-shifted emission; R=red-shifted emission; IPC = inverse P-Cygni profile. Uncertain values are denoted by " : " .
