Question:

Recently I have inherited my deceased great-aunt’s genealogical notes.  Within the files is a faded photocopy that is from Boyle’s Journal of Occurrences in Boston.  The page number is 254, and the only other thing I can identify it is from “[July” in the upper corner.  I am interested in the source because it mentioned the death of my ancestor Zachariah Brigden’s wife, but it does not give the year of the entry on that page.

 

Answer:

The resource in question is from an article published in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register (July 1930) volume 84, page 254.  The entry you mentioned was from March 30, 1768.  The year of the entry having been published on the previous page.  The NEHGS Register is available to be searched here on our website for members.
