Vital Records of North Berwick, Maine, 1892-2002


A valuable, but time-consuming, source of information for events occurring after 1892 is the section of vital statistics which is provided in the Annual Town Reports of many Maine towns. Families that have remained in North Berwick or adjacent towns for several generations can be traced and connected to the present.

This work is divided into births, marriages and deaths, and each section is arranged alphabetically. To the extent the information is available, the birth entries contain the child's name, date and place of birth, father's name and mother's name. Marriage entries generally contain groom's name and residence, bride's name and residence, and the date and place of marriage. Maiden names are emphasized with bold type and there is a separate alphabetical listing of marriages by bride's name. The list of deaths contains the name of the decedent, place and date of death, age at death, and many contain either the residence at death or place of burial. Under state law, births and marriages were not published after 1945, although deaths are reported to the present day.
