Charlestown Archives, Births, Marriages, Deaths 1629-1800. Vol 3.

645 pages + 100 pages of indexes. Transcript of Town Book 1, together with

supplemental material; e.g., records of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and of Middlesex County. The miscellaneous indexes classify persons by category; e.g., vocation; they also identify records associated with other towns. Most data is legible in spite of worn pages and bleeding ink. Page numbers, however, are often hard to find or decipher. Further, note that the index sometimes uses Roman numerals to designate Arabic page numbers.
