The Vital Records of the Town of Truro, Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849, are found in seven different volumes of the original town records. The "Register" is the large folio for recording births, marriages and deaths which was issued to all cities and towns by the state in 1844.
The records of births, marriages, and deaths include all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscriptions; and in private records found in family Bibles. These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplication of the town clerks' record has been eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the original record; also to indicate the maiden name of a wife.
The pages in this book contain a literal copy of every record of a Birth, Intention (or Publishment) of Marriage, Marriage and Death, to the end of the year 1849, found in these volumes.
The Town of Truro, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, lies between Provincetown, in whose harbor "The Mayflower Compact" was signed, and the present town of Wellfleet, which was a part of the town of Eastham until 1763. Truro was incorporated 27 July 1709 (New Style), and in 1714 the bounds between that town and Provincetown were established. In 1813, in 1829 and again in 1836 parts of Truro were annexed to Provincetown.
