Part One

From the introduction to part 1:

The enclosed Vital Records of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, are those which do not appear in the official records of this town. They have been compiled from many sources, some of an unordinary nature.

Trim goes on to describe a few such sources: records of other New England towns which indicate a person's move from Rehoboth, death records around Massachusetts that show Rehoboth as birth place, records indicating birth in Rehoboth in Arnold's Vital Records of Rhode Island, especially the newspaper extracts, and Seaman's Proterate Records, which were records of citizenship carried by American males to prevent their "impressment" into service on British Naval vessals. Many other sources also contributed entries. Gravestones from Rehoboth cemeteries were not included since such a stone by itself is not positive proof that Rehoboth was the last residence place of the interred.
