The book is 150 pages, not indexed, names listed alphabetically, soft cover with a plastic comb binding, and available for $24.98 + $3.99 shipping & handling charge (Add $1.00 S&H for each additional volume ordered).


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 returns made to the Pelham Quarterly Court; 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 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.

1. When places other than Pelham and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.
2. In all records the original spelling is followed.
3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as items about the same family or individual might be found under different spellings of that name.
4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each party is given only in the entry under his or her name. When both the marriage and intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is printed, with an asterisk.
5. Additional information which does not appear in the original text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, or difference shown in other entries of a record, is bracketed.
Parentheses are used only when they occur is the original test, or to separate clauses found there..-such as the birth-place of parent, in late marriage records.
