The book, "Vital Records of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849," Published by the Essex Institute, Salem, Massachusetts, 1914. It is a large book listing all of the records of Births, Marriages, and deaths in Chelmsford from its founding to 1849. It is not indexed, but the three sections are in alphabetical order & you can search the book using the Adobe Reader 'search' function. One of the interesting notes on this book is that it does list African American births, deaths, and marriages that were recorded in the town records. Please note: This is not a paper book, it is a scan of the original paper book into the digital Adobe PDF format, written on a CD-ROM. You read this book on your computer using the free Adobe Reader software. It is a digital version of a hard to find book. If you could find a copy of the 1914 printed book, it would be very expensive.
