The Major Collection for this week consists of more databases resulting from the partnership between the Godfrey Memorial Library and WorldVitalRecords.com. Most of the records deal with the state of Massachusetts with vital records from Kingston, Wrentham, and Norton. Click here to access the Godfrey Memorial Library databases.
Also included in the collection are Massachusetts town histories from Woburn, Hingham, and Newburyport. A topical and historical description of Boston is also among the titles. Town histories from Maine round out the collection.
Since 1951, the Godfrey Memorial Library has promoted the study of family history by inspiring individuals in all sectors of society to study their heritage and their own place in history. It has also sought to support educational activities that create enthusiasm for family research and to make genealogical and historical resources available to all on a national and international level. It aims to achieve this by continuing the expansion, modernization, and distribution of the collection of print, electronic manuscript and other information media as technology develops.
