City Clerk's Office, Fitchburg, Mass., October

1899.

This volume contains an exact transcript of the Old Records of the Town of Fitchburgh from Februar}' 9, 1789, to April 18, 1796, besides a record of all the vital statistics contained in Volume I. and so much of Volume to 303 inclusive, being the II. as is contained in pages original records prepared by Thomas Cowdin, Phinehas Hartwell and Joseph Fox, town clerks, with such additional records as were
later clerks.

made

to

the family

records

by

In these older records each family was given two full the right hand page being used to record the births, and the left hand page the deaths. To give our readers an idea of the pages in Volume II., I had Mr. J. C. Moulton photograph some of the pages, from which plates were made by the Heliotype Printing Company of
pages,

Boston, Mass.

The printer's copy was prepared by Mrs. Fannie B. Davis and Miss Bessie J. Davis. The work of printing has been executed b}^ the Sentinel Printing Company in their usual careful manner, and the index has been prepared under the supervision of Mr. Frank C. Hoyt, foreman of that company. The same general method has been used in this volume as in former volumes with reference to paging, the heavy figures enclosed in brackets representing the paging in the original books. We hope the perusal of this book will be found to be of service to those interested in genealogical matters, as well as to those persons who are interested in acquainting themselves with the methods pursued by our forefathers in the transaction of

town

business.
