The databases which comprise this Massachusetts Town Vital Records Collection include many previously posted on Ancestry.com and seven additional towns (Bellingham, Ebridge, Granville, Hopkinton, Lawrence, Montgomery, and Richmond). Also provided for the first time, is this advanced search page to aid researchers seeking just one type of record (i.e. birth, marriage, or death) at: <a href="http://www.ancestry.com/ancestry/search/mass.htm">http://www.ancestry.com/ancestry/search/mass.htm</a> Originally published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, in the early twentieth century, the databases in this compilation cover births, marriages, and deaths from each town from its respective founding until 1850.
