Stormont Township Book






Introduction:

In the early years of many communities, a book for registering marriages and births was kept by a clerk or the local magistrate, or some other person in authority.

This is a transcibed copy of the Stormont Township Book.

Many of the entries were not readable while viewing the microfilm copy at P.A.N.S. The photocopies I made of the microfilm copy are even worse, but I have done my best to transcribe the entries as accurately as possible.

Please let me know of any errors.

Patsy Lumsden




The first page of this book is covered with scribbed notes, sums, etc....generally unreadable.
