Genealogy Presentation: Bay State Bonanza – Four Centuries of Vital Records

September 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Tonight’s presentation is “Bay State Bonanza: Four Centuries of Vital Records” by Margaret Fortier. For those researching Massachusetts vital records, the abundance of records can be challenging. The Commonwealth boasts records back to 1620 and many are available online. But not everything is online; some records may be at state agencies and/or with town clerks. In this program you will learn how to determine where to locate them as well as the ins and outs of the evolving formats for birth, marriage, and death certificates over time.

Margaret holds a BSBA from Boston College and an MS in Human Factors in Information Design (HFID) from Bentley University. She is a Certified Genealogist®. A genealogical researcher, speaker and writer, she is based in the Boston area. She serves on the board of the Association of Professional Genealogists, (APG).

This program is sponsored by Friends of Charlton Public Library.

The Charlton Library Genealogy Group is a friendly group of people who share an interest in genealogy. We meet monthly on the first Thursday  of the month from 6:30-7:30 in the Local History Room. Meetings will alternate between general discussion topics and guest presenters. The meetings are free and open to the public.
