"The manuscripts in these volumes have been arranged as a Third Series of the subject Militia, numbering three thousand and fifty-four documents. The documents found in the First Series were selected about 1845 from the files of the General Assembly by Sylvester Judd, author of the History of Hadley, Massachusetts, and included documents up to the year 1790. The Second Series were moved from the Old State House and placed in a store room in the attic of the State Capitol, where they remained as originally filed when received from the General Assembly for deposit in the Secretary's Office, until 1907, when Mr. Godard rescued them from being included in paper stock. It was at this time that Superintendent William B. Sprague in his determination to clear the Capitol included for discard many papers and books of permanent value. An index was made for the Second Series in 1909 and revised in 1925. The Third Series consists principally of documents from the year 1790 through 1820, transferred from the office of the Secretary of State, when our new State Library and Supreme Court Building was occupied. There are a few documents of the earlier period, omitted from the First Series by Mr. Judd which have been included in the present series. The several volumes of Militia, Third Series, have been arranged

in eighteen volumes: I Public Acts, 1741-1815; II Public Acts, 1816-1820, Miscellaneous, i.e. Adjutant-and Quartermaster-generals departments, courts-martial, petitions for pensions and other private claims and petitions; III-XVIII Officers and formation of regiments, 1728-1820. The tables of contents not only furnish a convenient calendar of the legislation on militia for the period covered, but give a digest of the subject matter."

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
