Tyngsborough, Massachusetts Vital Records
Births, Deaths, & Marriages
1700 - 1850
Order item B370
The records of births, marriages and deaths in this book include all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscriptions; and in private records found in family bibles, etc. These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplications of the town clerks’ records has been eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the original record; also to indicate the maiden name of a wife.
When places other than Tyngsborough and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties.
Double-dating is used in the months of January, February and March, prior to 1752, whenever it appears in the original, and also whenever from the sequence of entry in the original the date may be easily determined. In all records the original spelling of names is followed and in the alphabetical arrangement the various forms should be examined, as items about the same family may be found under different spellings.
The records of this town being very incomplete, the town clerk, Mr. Charles Butterfield, about 1843, made a house to house canvass to collect additional information, and the new material was incorporated in the records.
