Town of Natick, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts 1874 - 1913 Vital Records
During a six week period in 1995, because I was fortunate enough to be a volunteer at the Natick Historical Society, I replicated a bound volume of Town Clerk Reports for the Town of Natick, Massachusetts.
The original reason for this undertaking was the quest of my genealogical roots. I believe in sharing, and to the best of my ability have accurately reproduced this information. As with most records, the information was as accurate as the person recording same, and there are many variations of surnames, for the same families. In my original documents, I had created an index of all the surnames, but was unable to convert it to a web page. I have added a search form, which should enable you to search for a particular surname.
As a point of interest, the amount of information published changed through the years. For example, in 1874 the parents were not recorded for births, but in 1879, in addition to the parents, the place of birth was also listed. Since the location was not always Natick, then it cannot be assumed that Natick was the location of any birth, marriage, or death. Always verify your sources.
The state of Massachusetts keeps vital records including birth, marriage, and death records since 1901, and a divorce index since 1952. To obtain records from the state:
Massachusetts State Archives
This site is dedicated to my Great-uncle, John Arthur "Archie" Morris, (1912-1986) who loved history, especially Natick's.
