Massachusetts Vital Records

The library at the General Society in Plymouth has all the published Massachusetts vital records, but they are all transcriptions of the original records. Ancestry.com has now published a large collecction of images of the original records, and the collection is growing constantly as new towns are added. The Historian General has requested that you include photocopies of the original records for generations not included in the MF Silver Books or MFIP books. If you print the records from Ancestry, please make sure you get a clear copy (e.g. on a laser printer) and also include a zoomed in copy of the target record. If you don't have access to Ancestry, please let us know and we can print the copies for you.
