1. When  places other than Uxbridge or Massachusetts are
named  in the original records they are given in the printed
2. In all items from the records the original spelling of the
names is given and any additions made to the spelling of the
record are enclosed in brackets.
3. The various spellings of a name should be examined as
items about the same family or individual may be found under
different spellings.
4. The  birth of a married woman  is recorded under her
maiden  name when  it is known, but if the maiden name is
unknown   the entry appears under the husband's name with
a dash enclosed in brackets, i.e., [---] to signify that the
maiden name  is not known.
5. In taking records from gravestones it is often the case
that the family name of a woman as given on the stone is not
that under which she was born, so, therefore, many births may
appear under a married name instead of the original, which is
not shown on the stone. In many   cases names are evidently
those of wives though not so specified.
6. Marriages and intentions are printed under the name
of both parties. When  both the marriage an intention are
recorded, only the marriage record is printed and the date of
the intention is not given, except when needed to make more
clear the date of the marriage. When the marriage appears
without th intention recorded it is designated with an asterisk.
7. Additional information, which does not appear in the
original town record, i.e., any difference shown in other records
of the same person is enclosed in parenthesis with the source
of the information indicated.
8. The  births and deaths from the records of the Uxbridge
Monthly   Meeting are mostly of  families living outside of
Uxbridge, but who were members  of the societies represented
in the Monthly Meeting.  Where  in the record the name of a
place is given the same is given in the printed text.
