  •  Notes 
    • "During the 18th century, the Boston town clerk did not keep records of deaths. There are numerous sources in which death and burial records can be found: newspaper obituaries and death notices, church records, sexton's burial bills, private diaries, published Bible records, vital records of other Massachusetts towns, manuscripts at Boston City Hall Archives and the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and cemetery records. While much of this material is in print, it can take an enormous amount of time and effort to search all the possibilities. The purpose of this book, and the companion volume on Boston cemeteries, is to save the researcher time by identifying the source or sources in which the death of a particular person may be found."
