David Lambert has written a new book: "Vital Records of Stoughton, Mass., to 1850." Actually, this is both an old and a new book. The earliest records of the town were published over 100 years ago and are included in the new book. The town hall suffered two fires before 1880, and a few vital records were lost. The missing records from 1834 to 1850 have been partially filled in with family records for births that the town clerk collected and from the state records starting in 1841. Those previously-unpublished records are also included in the new book.
This book will be available by pre-order only. That is, the publisher only plans to print enough copies to fill orders. There will be no "extra copies" printed for future sales. Pre-publication orders must be received by 15 August 2008 with delivery expected approximately October 1. If you or your local historical society library would like a copy, you need to order it now. The price is $45.00.
