About this webinar

Most people know that Massachusetts has rich vital records dating back to the 1600s. Making the most of Massachusetts vital records requires understanding the nuances of the records. We’ll talk about original sources such as town records books as well as the many printed and database options. Learn how to use the “tan books,” vital records from 1841 and all the other lesser known resources available.

    Just to clarify the DAR does not require that vital record copies be certified. Just a copy will do! I’m a chapter registrar and a National Volunteer Genealogist committee volunteer
