The list of Hubbardston Births, Marriages and Deaths comprised in this volume includes all that were found in the Town Books covering the period from the earliest date there recorded to the end of the year 1849. Some additions have been made from other sources and these are indicated in each instance by proper reference.
All of the records are condensed in print as much as is consistent with intelligibility, accuracy, and completeness of information. Differences in duplicates, and explanatory or other matter which seemed necessary or desirable, appear in brackets.
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each person is given only under his or her name. An asterisk after a
marriage indicates that the intention was not found recorded, and in many cases this is accounted for by the fact that neither party belonged in Hubbardston, and consequently publishment was made elsewhere.
When places other than Hubbardston and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.
