EXPLANATIONS.
1. WHEN places other than Hanson and Massachusetts arenamed 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 underdifferent spellings.
4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under the names of both parties. When both the marriage and intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is printed; and where a marriage appears without the intentionrecorded, it is designated with an asterisk.
5. Additional information which does not appear in the original text of an item, i.e. any explanation, query, inference, ordifference shown in other entries ofthe record, is bracketed. Parentheses are used to show the difference in the spelling of a name in the same entry, to indicate the maiden name of a wife, to enclose an imperfect portion of the original text, and to separate clauses in the original text — such as the birthplace of a parentin late records.
