Berlin Vital Records Transcript at the Connecticut State Library and NEHGS

"This volume contains a list alphabetically arranged of all the vital records of the town of Berlin from its incorporation to about 1850. The entire record for this town prior to 1850 is found scattered through Volumes 1, 4, 9 and 12 of Land Records and a book of Marriages from 1820 to 1851. Reference to entries found in the Land Records is indicated by the abbreviation 'LR' and the volume number.

This list was taken from a set of cards based on a copy of the Berlin Vital Records made in 1916 by James N. Arnold, of Providence, R. I. The Arnold Copy, now in the possession of the Connecticut State Library, has not been compared with the original and doubtless errors exist. It is hoped that as errors or omissions are found notes will be entered in this volume and on the cards which are included in the General Index of Connecticut Vital Records also in the possession of the Connecticut State Library.
