1. When places other than Deerfield or Massachusetts are named in the original records they are given in the printed text.
2. in all items from the records the original spelling of the name is given, and any additions made to the spelling of the
record are enclosed in brackets.
3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as items about the same family or individual may be found under
different spellings.
4. The birth of a married woman is recorded under her maiden
name, when it is known, but if the maiden name is unknown the entry appears under the husband's name with a dash enclosed in brackets, i.e. [ ], to signify that the maiden name is not known. 
5. In taking records from gravestones it is often the case that
the family name of a woman as given on the stone is not that under which she was born, so therefore many births may appear under a married name instead of the original, which is not shown on the stone. In many cases names are evidently those of wives, though not so specified. All dates of births found on the gravestones in the town are given in the book, but from this it is not to be inferred that the persons are born in this town, as in a great many cases they are not. 
6. Marriages and intentions are printed under the names of
both parties. When both the marriage and intention are recorded, only the marriage record is printed, and the date of the intention is not given, except when needed to make more clear the date of the marriage. When the marriage appears without the- intention recorded it is designated with an asterisk. 
7. Additional information which does not appear in the original town record, i.e., any difference shown in other records of the same person, is enclosed in parentheses, with the source of the information indicated.
