Carlisle MA Vital Records to 1850

Carlisle MA Vital Records to 1850
This map of Carlisle is from an 1875 Beers Atlas of Middlesex County. The original map is about 15″x18″ in size.

Carlisle MA Vital Records to 1850 includes records of births, marriages and deaths, basically all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscriptions; and in private records found in family Bibles, etc. These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplication of the town clerk’s record has been eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the original record; also to indicate the maiden name of a married woman.

When places other than Carlisle and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under the names of both parties. In all records the original spelling of names is followed, and in the alphabetical arrangement the various forms should be examined, as items about the same family may be found under different spellings.
