Today we’re announcing two updated databases, Greenfield, MA: Records, 1775-1911 and Lyme, NH: Congregational Church Records, 1774-1867.  Many of our databases, including these are based on manuscripts held in our library collection.  We recently had these two manuscripts scanned, then re-indexed by our volunteers.  They now include images and are now searchable by all available fields, including first name, last name, spouse’s name, parents’ names, location, date, and year.   Greenfield, MA: Records, 1775-1911 includes three major types of records: abstracts of probate records, church records, and Bible records.  You can use the keyword field to search for probate case number, church, cemetery, or source (family Bible).  We especially want to thank the following volunteers: Margo Blank, Barbara Holt, Carole Livingston, Susan Hurlbut, Pat Dalpiaz, Philip Gross, Diane Arbuckle, Julie Bliss Hammons, and Barbara Macken.
