Milford Vital Records Transcript at the Connecticut State Library and NEHGS
"The vital records of Milford prior to 1850 are found in one volume. Supplementing the town records are records from four other sources. These have been alphabetically arranged and listed. In this alphabetical list the abbreviation 'OL' refers to entries in the Old Long Book, 'SM' to the Book of Mortality kept by Samuel Bryan Marshall, 'BP' to the Death Records kept by Rev. Bezeleel Pineo. 'ES' to A Statistical Account of the Township of Milford, by Erastus Scranton and 'LL' to loose leaves found in Volume 1, the reference used for the town book of records.
This list was taken from a set of cards based on a copy of the Milford Vital Records made in 1914 by Mr. 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 records
Hartford. Conn., May, 1925"
The published Milford Vital Records are somewhat of a mess. For verification of the early vital records, see Milford (Conn.) Vital Records extracted by Donald Lines Jacobus and published, 1932-33, in The American Genealogist."
