Short explanation, I am transcribing items, mostly local town news, from
these old papers. Vermont Phoenix was published in Brattleboro, near the
Mass. border. They had SOME items from border towns in Mass. and I have
transcribed them as I came to them. The Vermont ones I am putting on the
Vermont Roots list and am sending this one to GenMass. If this is not of
interest, or in the scope of your mission, please let me know and I won't
send any more. Thanks, Ruth
