Vital Records Of Wakefield, New Hampshire, 1887-1998Book - 1999
Vital statistics are a valuable source of information and are provided in the Annual Town Reports of many New Hampshire towns. Marriage and death records from persons in the late 1800s often identify their parents, whose birth and marriages may not have been accessibly recorded. Also, there are many immigrants from Canada and Eastern Europe, or their children, covered by these records. Additionally, those families that have remained in Wakefield for several generations can be traced and connected to the present using this information. These birth, marriage, and death records are arranged alphabetically by surname. Birth records include (where available): the childs name; date of birth; place of birth; the number of children in the family; fathers name, place of birth and occupation; and the mothers maiden name, age, and place of birth. The residence of the parents is given when it is other than Wakefield. Marriage records include (where available): the grooms name, grooms residence, brides name, brides residence, date of marriage, place of marriage, ages, occupations; number of the marriage; fathers name, place of birth and occupation; mothers name, place of birth and occupation. The names of the officials conducting the marriages have been omitted. Death records include (where available): the name of the deceased, place of death, date of death, age at death, cause of death, marital status, birthplace, fathers name and place of birth, mothers name and place of birth.
