Genealogy Club: Genealogical Gold in New England Town Books and Reports Online
Genealogist Robert Cameron Weir will examine two important, but underused, town-level resources: old town books, as maintained by town clerks since colonial times, and town annual reports, published from the mid-19th century to the present. They can provide the breakthrough clues needed to demolish your genealogical brick wall. Where census and compiled vital records fail us, these resources can save the day.
