Thank you Don for all your time and patience. This surely was a large task. I am looking for my GGG Grandmother and can't seem to locate her. I have gone to the local town halls and checked the BDM registers and still am at a standstill. Susan

I've placed a bunch of books on the site in a single volume so you can
search them all at once as I had done for the 39 volume set for Boston.
These are the ones that cover Abington, Arlington, Boxborough, etc. from
"early times till 1850." As with the other set, if you want to confine your
search to one municipality, e.g. Abington, then include "AbingtonV" in one
of the search fields. The search will likely be slow if you search for
something that yields a zillion matches, e.g. "john". Actually I've put a
throttle on it so it but it still slows down a lot. The index is quite
large since the set of books, about 140, has a searchable text index of 62
I probably missed a few books in the series and might even have some repeats
too. Hopefully you will find it useful. I know there are other copies on
other sites. You can find them both on my directory and census pages:
Just a reminder: I've also placed finding guides at
http://Guides.DonsList.net to help you find digitized microfilms from the
National Archive that are hosted on the Internet Archive. I have guides for
30,000+ reels covering the complete decennial census's for 1800-1930,
compiled service records from the Revolution and the Civil War, and an
alphabetical index of volunteers from the War of 1812. The Revolution and
War of 1812 records are particularly nice because they are organized
alphabetically and contain personal information.

This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list.

- Definitely a birth record for John with the right date and parents.
- The unnamed McLaughlin in 1892 has a different mother's maiden name than
the marriage in 1911.
- I didn't find a death record for a female "Campbell" between 1900 and 1910
whose husband was John with a reasonable age.
So let me ask this... other than the family stories, what do you know about
them? Have you found them in a census? It appears that John was in Addison,
Vermont in 1942 and I suspect that he was no longer with his wife since his
employer is listed on the WWII as someone that "will always know your
I see them in Poultney in 1930, but I had no luck finding Walter's birth
record. The 1930 census seems consistent with the birthdate's and the fact
that John had been previously married, since his age minus
age-at-first-marriage is different than Laura's.
I can't spend more time right now, but any other clues wold be useful.
