Subject: Boston VRs 1830-1900?
Date: Fri, 12 Feb 1999 17:01:25 -0800
I have a couple of novice questions about Boston VRs in the 1830-1900
1. My ancestors were married at Boston 1834 and there was a notation of
the event in the two Boston papers that were operating at that time. I
never found the record in Boston Vital Records.
Where would it normally have been located? Commissioner Reports?
2. I feel that there were VR events in Boston in the 1800s that possibly
didn't make the 5 year indexes.
Disregarding the state index, how would I check the Boston records for
deaths in the 1850-1900 period? I am going to use the LDS films to check
