Vital Records

Vital Records of Wenham, Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849

A published index of birth, marriage, and death records from the earliest settlement through 1849.  The index was compiled and published in 1904 by the Essex Institute from town clerk's records, church records, cemetary records, and family bibles.  Records are indexed by last name.  This volume is part of a series that contains vital records for over 200 Massachusetts towns through 1849.  

A full text copy of the index as published is available on archives.org

The Massachusetts Vital Records Project has transcribed the index by town and surname, which can be useful for finding relocated family members: http://ma-vitalrecords.org/
