Prior to 1785 divorces were heard by the Governor and Council. In 1785 the Massachusetts Acts and Resolves gave jurisdiction over divorce to the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC). The SJC retained sole jurisdiction until 1887 when the Superior Court Department took over jurisdiction. In 1922 the Probate and Family Court Department began to hear divorces. Both courts have concurrent jurisdiction.

Includes indexes.

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 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.
