This book is comprised of all the vital statistics to be found in the Town Record books beginning in the year 1637 and continuing up to 1853.  All of the births, marriages, and deaths recorded by the Town Clerks are preserved here.  Every page of the original records first published in The Mayflower Descendant Magazine, volume 3 [July, 1901] to volume 34 [October, 1937], has been scanned, re-formatted, and where necessary, re-typed to make this edition the most easily readable of all the editions currently available.

In addition to the Town Records, the gravestone inscriptions found in the area's two major ancient burying grounds are printed in this book:
THE ANCIENT CEMETERY AT EASTHAM, MASS and THE CEMETERY NEAR THE EASTHAM, MASS., RAILROAD STATION.

In 1797 the town of Eastham was divided and one part was incorporated as the town of Orleans. The original records of the town of Eastham are in the possession of the town of Orleans. The first volume is in a very dilapidated condition and should be preserved by the Emery process. The earliest vital records are found in the second part of the first volume.

Here is a sample of the types of records to be found in this book:

Anna Bills the Wife of Thomas Bills died the first day of September in the yeare 1675
