EXPLANATIONS

The following record of births, marriages and deaths in-

clude all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the

town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscrip-

tions; and in the 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 indi-

cate the maiden name of a married woman, and to show varia-

tions in the spelling of a name in the same entry.

When places other than Georgetown 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 inten-

tion of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is

printed; and when a marriage appears without the intention

being recorded, it is designated by an asterisk. In all records

the original spelling of names is followed, and the various

forms of family names have been placed in one alphabetical

arrangement.
