We are happy to let you know that we have fully revamped the database Springfield, VT: Records of the Rev. George W. Bailey, 1740-1902 so that it is now searchable by first name and last name, location, record type, and family members (where available). The page images from the original manuscript were also added to the database. This database now includes over 3,500 searchable names and the full 105 pages of the original manuscript.

Reverend George W. Bailey commenced preaching in 1839, was licensed and ordained by the Universalist denomination in 1840, and served in the Vermont towns of Springfield, East Randolph, and Morrisville, as well as Lebanon, New Hampshire.

The dates of marriages in the Reverend Bailey’s record book are from 1841 to 1902, inclusive, intentions of marriage are from 1845 to 1850, and funerals are from 1840 to 1900. The record types are primarily birth, marriage and burial.

The original text is also available in the NEHGS Research Library. The call number is Mss A 6567.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteer Greta Gaffin. If you have some time and would like to get involved in the database digitization and indexing process, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at rachel.adams@nehgs.org.
