The list of Phillipston Births, Marriages and Deaths
comprised in this volume includes all that were found in the Town Books covering the period from the earliest date
there recorded to the end of the year 1849. Some additions have been made from other sources, and these are indicated
in each instance by proper reference.
All of the records are condensed in print as much
as is consistent with intelligibility, accuracy, and completeness of information. Differences in duplicates, and
explanatory or other matter which seemed necessary or desirable, appear in brackets.
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed
under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each person is given only under his or her
name. An asterisk after a marriage indicates that the intention was not found recorded, and in many cases this
is accounted for by the fact that neither party belonged in Phillipston, and consequently publishment was made
The double date is used in the months of January,
February, and March prior to 1752 only when it so appears in the original, and instances of the modern form after
1725 are not uncommon.
When places other than Phillipston and Massachusetts
are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.
