The following records of births, marriages and deaths include all entries to be found in the books kept by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscriptions; in private records found in family Bibles, etc.; in church admissions and dismissals also those for the years prior to 1784 found in the Berlin town clerks' books, being copies of the records from that portion of Bolton now a part of Berlin. No record of marriages were kept from 1821 to 1824.

The town records from 1854 to 1874 were badly faded on the original books and had been traced by the town clerk of a later period, presenting some difficulties to the compiler.

These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplication of the town clerks' record 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 married woman, and to show variations in the spelling of a name in the same entry.

When places other than Berlin 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. When both the marriage and intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is printed. In all records the original spelling of names is followed, and the various forms of family names have been placed in one alphabetical arrangement.

Ball Hill, Carterville, Wheeler Hill, Sawyer Hill, New Worcester and Barnes Hill are sections of Berlin . Feltonville is now Hudson .
