Excerpt from Massachusetts Records: A Handbook for Genealogists, Historians, Lawyers, and Other Researchers

Especially important are the footnotes describing records in the various cities and towns. Those whose vital records have been printed are marked with an asterisk. The accompanying map shows the division of the Commonwealth into counties with their cities and towns. The appended index is provided for locating them. Num bered Note pages are added for future memoranda.

With the exception Of Suffolk, each Of the counties has an Official seal all Of which are assembled and reproduced here for the first time. The frontispiece Shows the great seal Of Plymouth Colony and all of the great seals used for Massachusetts from the first seal adopted in 1628-9 to the present time. The great seals used by the Royal Governors for the Province of Massachusetts, beginning with King William III in 1692, and continuing through the reigns of the three George's to the period of the Revolution, were the Royal arms of England, with the name of the reigning king and a motto Show ing that the seal appertained to the Province.

The detail Of these seals may be over emphasized in this book.
