Danvers, Massachusetts Births to 1850
The Vital Records of Danvers, Massachusetts (Volume 1, Births), published
by the Essex Institute in 1909, is a comprehensive accounting of births
in Danvers, Massachusetts up to the end of the year 1849. The data is
found in several places: books of record kept by the town clerks; church
records; cemetery inscriptions; and many private records found in family
Bibles. In all records, the original spelling of the names is followed,
and in the alphabetical arrangement, the various forms should be examined,
since items about the same family may be found under different spellings.
This database of more than 40,000 names can provide researchers with
needed information on family movement over the years, since birth location
is also frequently given.
