This database is based on a portion of a manuscript from the R. Stanton Avery Collections, call number MSS 624, donated by the Dorchester Antiquarian and Historical Society. The Dorchester Antiquarian and Historical Society was in existence from 1843-1907. The purpose of the Society was to collect and preserve “books, pamphlets, manuscripts and curiosities, bearing on the biography and history of men and things in the United States, from the earliest period”.
“Sub-group III Material concerning the town of Dorchester, Series E Vital and other records, Folders 35-41” is the portion of the manuscript upon which this database is based. It consists of small record books containing marriage intentions and marriages as well as slips of paper upon which more intentions and marriages were recorded.
This database update is possible through the work of our wonderful volunteer Sam Sturgis.
