Vital Records of Lyme and Dorchester, New Hampshire, 1887-2004


Vital Records of Lyme and Dorchester, New Hampshire, 1887-2004 - Richard P. Roberts. A valuable, but time-consuming, source of information for events occurring in 1887, and thereafter, is the section of vital statistics which is provided in the Annual Town Reports of many New Hampshire towns. Families that have remained in Lyme, Dorchester or adjacent towns for several generations can be traced and connected to the present. Unfortunately, Dorchester failed to publish vital statistics for some of the years covered.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; number of children in the family; father's name, place of birth, age and occupation; and mother's maiden name, age, and place of birth. Marriage entries include (as available): groom's name and residence; bride's name and residence; date and place of marriage. Information pertaining to husband and wife is listed individually and includes: age, occupation, number of marriage (if other than first); father's name, place of birth and occupation; and mother's name, place of birth and occupation. A separate alphabetical listing of brides allows for cross referencing. The list of deaths contains the name of the decedent, place and date of death, age at death, cause of death, marital status, birthplace, father's name and place of birth, and mother's name and place of birth. 2006, 5½x8½, paper, alpha., 588 pp.
